Flyman35 Posted October 6, 2008 Share Posted October 6, 2008 Tom has not been doing well the last 5 days or so and it is just getting worse. First his BP dropped again and then the cough came back big time. He is breathing very hard all day like he just ran a 5K. He also just told me this morning that his vision keeps going blurry and he is dizzy all the time. He went to the Onc's office this morning and was there for an hour. While he was there they drew blood on him and his O2 sats are at 90. They told him they did not know what was wrong with him and that he needed to either go to the ER or see his primary. So Tom being Tom he called the primary and they saw him at 2 p.m. this afternoon. They tell him what we all knew already, "Tom, you do have a chronic lung disease. There is really nothing we can do for you." BS,BS,BS!!! So they give him an inhaler to try and some more Tussionex. No tests, no scans, no x-rays. Just, "Here take this and maybe you will feel better." BS,BS,BS!!! He has fought so hard to beat the cancer that I will be DAMNED if I am going to lose him to COPD or something of the like!!!
