Sally has been looking after me now for over 6 years, infact she was one of the team of physio's who were given the task of getting this poor wretch back from the dead after surviving the un-survivable. The ICU team had done their bit in pulling me through a double pneumonia, ARDS, a pulmonary embolism etc etc and now it was down to Sally and her team to rebuild what was left, a massive task because I had wrecked lungs and no muscles, infact I was a breathing skeleton that refused to give up.
I had an appointment with amazeballs Sally today, just a check over to see how I was getting on with the new gadjets she had given me and a breathing control check to recap a few important breathing exercises and technics.
I mentioned to her that my breathing was in a bad way since my rheumatoid arthritis consultant had tweaked my pills, he was new to me and decided lowering my steroids and raising my Mycophenolate was the way to go. I did think at the time this was going to end badly but gave it a go because he was the expert.
Well this was the cue for AB Sally to get on the case. She promised me she would get in touch with my Lung consultant and phone me once she new what he thought.
After returning home later today the phone rang and it was AB Sally, she told me that the consultant had said to raise my steroids to 20mg and drop back to 15mg if possible as a maintenance dose. She's also on the case about the length of time until my next appointment with the lung consultant.
As you can tell I am Sally's no 1 fan cus she gets things done, my head was in a bit of a spin, knowing that my tablets were wrong for me but not quite knowing what to do about it. I feel more relaxed now things have been sorted and I owe it all to AB Sally.
Pass on the love Healthunlockeders .
