Eveyone is asking how I’m feeling & what’s the latest news regarding feedback from drs, because that’s where I stopped last with my current condition.
Out of his own accord & good will, he’d suggested to meet with us a day or 2 after Eid… as he was supposed to be JHB. (Originally from Cape Town.) The time was yet to be arranged..
Past 2 weeks – experiencing more noticeable cardiac changes – something new from the “normal-abnormal”.
Sorry, it’s difficult sending out personal updates so I typed a standard one.
Thank you for the concern!!
From here onwards, the sequence will slowly take a track back into hospital memoirs….
*** Excess fluid lung sounds can be hard to detect, depending on the cause. If you take a few strands of hair & rub them between your fingers, the subtle sound heard resembles a type of lung congestion. Sometimes difficult to pick up with a stethoscope.
– Explained by a medic.
In this instance, the Dr heard it easily & I myself hear it intermittently with no stethoscope. If someone were to put their ears to my chest whilst there’s complete silence around, they’d hear it too.
A respiratory physiologist from abroad advised me to be cautious with Pulmonary Edema (Not to be lazy with the water retention meds) because when lung air sacs overfill /overload, there is a major interference between the exchange of gases & carbon dioxide, resulting in a person “drowning” in their own excess water.
No moaning, only explaining!
MVPS as indicated below
Hemoptysis testing is cleared of TB
I was quite sure it would be
Remaining 2 results will take 4 weeks.
Now, I distinctly hear this new fashion
My mind has not forged a fabrication.
Lots of abnormal plops & gallops
A new rhythm my heart adopts.
Sprinting hoof beats of horses
Thumping of launching army forces.
On the left side
Where the MVPS lies.
How do i know?
There, cardios placed the probe
And explained the lingo.
If I whisper “a bit not too” much
This new symptom acts up.
An area on my neck pains
Only around the jugular vein.
From blood vessels, fluid seep
Laying absolutely still, I breathe
As my chest heaves
The crackles creak
Crrrr cccrr crrr cccrrrrr.
Loud congested sounds
Flooded lungs weigh me down
Forehead doesn’t crease with a frown
But a thought sporadically bounds,
Perchance I may drown?
Forming a boulder midway
Situated next to the airway.
Tough to make it budge
Forcing the body to trudge.
Progression is so real
Almost feels surreal.
Where is my main & only doctor?
Who recognises the trials I endure
None have an idea.
We’ve tried calling him, but to no avail
Every mobile number reaches voicemail
With my lords aid, never will I wail
Verily! Divine planning never fails.
Despite the impeding plight
It is an order of flawless insight.
I am not mistaken
Few aspects are certain;
Qouted from another poet:
I have learnt that he who at night finds tears
Dawns a new day to find abundant cheers
I have learnt that whatever life throws down our path
There is a supreme being that holds our heart
I have learnt of a mercy that lies with my creator
With that I realised there can be nothing greater
