December 11th Update:
I would apologize for my total absence online since about a month, but many things are currently happening in my life (more details about that soon), and the bad news is that I had again issues with my right lung since yesterday (December 10th), difficulties to breathe, feel lacking of oxygen and hurting chest (but I haven't made any efforts at all, don't worry! ^_^).
So, I will go to the hospital tomorrow morning and will probably have another surgery in the upcoming days, probably staying at the hospital for at least a week if all goes good and depending of the surgery. Not fun at all... *sigh*
Anyway I try to stay optimistic and hope that things will be good this time! : )
Don't worry. See you soon, and always be happy! ^________^~Cappippuni
October 29th Journal Entry:
Sorry for my recent absence online, I'm just back from hospital for a lung surgery.
Initially I thought I had caught a bad cold due to the humid autumn climate, I was feverish and always coughing with breath shortness since early October but more recently I fainted after serious breath difficulties.
Immediately sent to the hospital emergencies, my right lung wasn't working at all and the heart rate was abnormally high with lack of oxygen. The diagnosis was immediate, it was a pneumothorax (definition on Wikipedia)
In the hour that followed I underwent surgery for inserting a drain pump directly through my chest to the lung for removing the accumulated blood hemorrhage. Despite local anesthesia in the emergency, it was probably the most painful experience of my life.
Then the next morning I was transferred to a more advanced hospital by helicopter (first time I've been in a helicopter... well the 60km-long/15 minutes journey was tiring and painful).
Thursday 23, I was in surgery again under complete anesthesia for removing the first temporary pump and inserting two bigger drain pumps in my chest instead, almost 3 liters of blood were around my lung. Scary! O_O
After-surgery things went good, I no longer needed to be under oxygen assistance since Thursday, while the drains were removed first Friday and last Saturday, finally back home after the weekend. ^_^
So, I'm finally back to home, still really really tired and right chest hurting, but the most important is that I can breathe again and especially that I'm alive.
Seriously, I learned that it is necessary to enjoy every day of our lives
, things can quickly switch sometimes. Enjoy the life.
For now, I will need to rest a lot (so tired) and have home care/breath therapy for some time, and no physical activities for 4 months. Ouch! D:
I noticed that I never done a kiriban before. Why not a little quick kiriban right now? For 30 Points? Just catch the 100,000th pageviews on my profile page, then post a screenshot in a comment here showing it!
Gooooooood luck!! ^_______________^♥
