Good Morning All
Hope you are all doing relatively well given all our health problems lol. I had my right heart catheter procedure on 20 June and my specialist nurse gave me a call. My heart is not under stress which is absolutely fabulous news - I am so pleased about that. The blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs is at 67 which is high (the heart consultant said he likes it to be at 20 and below). I am on Bosentan 62.5 mg which they have decided to double and they are introducing a new tablet and they hope that this will bring down the blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs for me (known as pulmonary hypertension for those that don't know). They say that my lungs are stable on my chemo which I will be on for life as my immune system is attacking my lungs so they have switched off the immune system to stop it being able to. They also say that the pulmonary hypertension is linked to my CREST syndrome which they seemed pleased about, well it is supposedly better that it is linked to that than my pulmonary fibrosis. So all in all brilliant news.
Plus yesterday I received the outcome of my PIP review, and blow me down with a feather I got what I deserve which is enhanced daily living and enhanced mobility - I was ready for an appeal if that had not been the result lol, but I am glad that I can put the boxing gloves away as it is too hot to fight......
Plus the tax man sent me a letter telling me I had overpaid tax and to claim it back.
They say good luck comes in 3's - it sure has done for me.
Have a fabulous day all. I will be chilling today - the excitement of all the good news has wiped me out lol (think the sun, my PF, my PH etc has something to do with it too).
