Yeah, as I predicted, it would be later that I could write my post. First we were up rather early, about 7.30, adn went top the lung nurse. As I already suspected, there wasn;t much new under the sun, the only good thing is that she prescribed me an apparel for the inhaler, kind of oval "box"where you shoot in the dosis of the inhaler and then breath in and out several times, so that the medication is really going into your lungs, where it should be. I just wonder why they didn't give it to me rioght away when they gave the inhaler. For the rest she hadn't much more to tell, she told me I am having underweight(I knew that too) and that it isn;t a too good thing when you have COPD. Okay, I am trying to eat better, I am actually, I have more appetite and so I hope slowly to gain a bit of weight again, best is to gain more muscle-mass. But in our family almost everybody was of a slim nature. Still I should try to get about 3 kilo more. Phooo, that is a tough job! She already talked about perhaps seeing a dietist, but I think I know what I need to do and can try it out first myself. If not really, really necessary I don;t want to run from one specialist to another! Next appointment with this nurse is on the 14th of July.
After this consult, Jan and I went into the shopping mall near that hospital. I used to live in that area many years ago, and it was fun to see how the shopping mall changed. It was such nice weather, so we took advantaged of it. We even sat down in the open air to have a nice cappuccino, yummie.
After the tour in the shpping centre we took the tram home and arrived there at about 14.00 o'clock.
Enough talk about health issues adn so on! Talking about it too much makes you sometimes even feeling worse, LOL!
Think it is best to give you your freebie mow, second part of the "Fantasy"serie of quickpages.
Have a nice day, see you tomorrow again!
