Here it is! Short and sweet I guess. I am home from the last heart procedure at U of M. I now have a continuous flow I.V. with Milrinone running 24/7.
What is this you ask?
It is this: "Milrinone, commonly known and marketed under the brand name Primacor, is a medication used in patients who have heart failure. It is a phosphodiesterase 3 inhibitor that works to increase the heart's contractility and decrease pulmonary vascular resistance".
It is due to me having VERY small arteries and veins, a genetic thing. What does it feel like, nothing really. I don't feel it at all. I DO however feel the bag I am attached too! UGH
I keep forgetting it and try to walk away and leave the bag, which does not work well at all. I am getting better at remembering as time goes by.
I am still a bit tired, but I do and am feeling better each day other than all the Potassium Chloride liquid I have to take now, OH MY GOD awful taste for sure, and I have to drink 70 ml a day!!!! (If anyone has an idea of how to make it taste some better please let me know).
All in all I am feeling better I think. But as we all know that can change from day to day for me it seems hour to hour.
I will be shipping out orders this week as well, I will do it as I can. I think I have a nerve issue from an IV or blood draw, my arm is very painful when I hold it a position and it is the one I use to CUT WITH! SERIOUSLY! NOW WHAT!
I can see knots in my arm when in this position. But I will make it work!
Now to lose the weight that is not fluid!!! But I am down a lot! Just more to go.
I have come to the conclusion as well, I can not keep up with the pace I have been going. Therefore, will be reducing inventory very fast here shortly and then transition to closing my fabric store I do believe. It is a hard one for me and I love it, but my body does not!
I am going to put me first from now on. And with all the things coming up soon here, I have to go back and forth to U of M weekly and then will be in patient for 10 weeks minimum with the next surgery. It is what it is and that is my life.
All in all I am doing well all things considered.
I DO APPRECIATE all the Well Wishes from you all as well.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
Now for a nap.
Peace out and create well!
