I checked myself onto the ER Thursday night. I hadn't been able to breath since Tuesday. It was bad.

After much poking, prodding and getting stuck, they found water on both lungs which in turn, took it's toll on my heart. It was slightly enlarged.

I'm home and on new meds. I can breath again.

Pneumonia?
I came down with Valley Fever once and it turned into pneumonia. I finally went to the doc when I could no longer breath. They gave me a Z-pack.

If I understood it correctly, it was my blood pressure meds. They've been adjusted and I'm on lasix now.

Middle of the night, I got up to use the bathroom and got so dizzy. The house spun, I tried and tried to stay uprights fell against the wall and then fell backward on to the ground. Closest I've ever come to fainting.
