I'm a Mess!! a Rant--don't Pay Attention! :O)


About 5-6 weeks ago I started to have coughing spells at night and once in awhile I would find the phlegm had/has blood in it--finally got hold of my primary and asked (a silly ) whether I should come into see him or make an appointment with my pulmonary guy or NET doctor--he, of course, said to come in to see him which I did today---he told me to see the NET doc first and go for X-Rays of lung and chest.

I came home and was able to set up an appointment for the X-Rays next Monday but haven't been able to get the appointment yet with the NET doc--they were supposed to call me back but didn't which means I'll be trying tomorrow!!

Now here is the weird thing--around 6 PM my left ankle started to hurt and I noticed it was a little bit swollen--I put an ice pack around it---now 4 hours later it is still hurting and it has swollen more and is red--I have some pain killers and took one--thinking of taking an anti-biotic also but will wait to see if the swelling goes down in the morning.

how is your day going??


I won't tell you what I have been through since 9 AM except to say I still haven't heard back from the NET guy for an appointment that I called for yesterday!!

Then I had a few hours trying to get the 2 subscriptions that my primary called in for my ankle--I felt sorry for the poor guy on the end of one phone call that lasted over an hour--he had a lot more patience than I do!!

I am not watching or listening to the news today!

Me neither (the news) - went out to a long lunch with a neighbor and now Netflix marathon.

Keep hammering on those doctors who don't answer. And don't borrow trouble - a small amt of blood could be just micro-injuries to your airway from the cough.
