I really must get a new wardrobe.
Years and years of IV steroids use have destroyed my veins. The only one they could find was in my foot. Have you ever had an IV in your foot?…. ouch !
So anyways, this is what my “red zone” looks like when it gets out of control.
I had a pretty severe attack last week ,which almost did me in. Because of that, I had to withdraw from the Trail 2 Cities half Marathon in Clovis this weekend… My very first DNS due to asthma ! Oh well, I guess it was bound to happen eventually. I hope this is not going to be a trend. Thank you to all the wonderful Doctors , Nurses , Respiratory Therapists and the Walkingfasterclub members for putting up with my crap.
This was my 88th hospital admission for asthma. This exacerbation was particularly severe and took a lot out of me . I suspect it will take me a several weeks to recover, so please excuse me if I don’t update my blog as often during this time period.
