My busy Tuesday

Let's start with Monday. When the Home Care person came, just before starting my shower, she mentioned that her little boy at home had a cold and that she thought she was getting it. I sent her home and stayed in my PJs all day.

Tuesday the Home Care company sent another person. She works as an aid in one of the local hospitals. She really was good. I would like it if she would be permanently assigned to me. She came just minutes before the Home Health Nurse came to take a sputum culture. Over the weekend we noticed that my Inner Cannula has a lot of reddish brown sputum in it and also has a foul odor. Hopefully the results of this culture will be ready by Friday when I visit my pulmonologist. Also I hope that I don't have yet another lung infection. However, I think I do.

After the Home Health nurse left and the Home Care person left, I did some emailing, and read the newspaper. Then just as I went to get some lunch a friend of P's called and said she would like to come for a visit and would bring some sandwiches for lunch. So she and her 4 year old came over and we had lunch. After lunch we watched a video "The Long Story Short" which is a one hour presentation of the entire Bible.

No sooner had she and her son left when Apria Healthcare showed up to refill my liquid oxygen tank. After Apria left the neighbor walked in asking if I needed a ride to the poll. So off we went to vote. Of course once at the poll I saw a number of people I knew so I visited a bit with them.

What a busy day I had yesterday. Now for some reason I am tired today which is too bad because it is a nice warm fall day today. I really want to go for a walk around the neighborhood, but I'm not going to. I know that if I do I will be exhausted and it will take a long time to recuperate.
