One major realization was discovered though. After doing my first blows for my PFTs my numbers weren't great so my lovely respiratory tech decided to bring a new tactic in. Changing the screen from watching a line go across it to trying to extinguish a line of birthday candles. I have to say, I felt like I was 10 all over again doing PFTs with the little kid-like animation, but wow did it work! I was able to blow out all the candles and my numbers for my second and third tries were way better. My lung function was a strong 27%!!! Not getting any worse, but also not getting any better!
|I'd like to see you blow all of these bad boys out with my dry, scarred up lungs!|
And I must add that it was 2:30pm before we were finished all my appointment and finally headed for lunch!!! I was starving.
We headed straight out of town and went to Cross Iron Mills where we got a bite to eat and looked around the mall for an hour. I managed to buy a new sweater and a fancy dress to wear to an upcoming wedding. All in all it was a good day with a few laughs. But really, there are always a few laughs whenever we go anywhere!
