Hello my rabbit friends, and bun life readers, I write to you with a heavy heart tonight from Stony Brook Hospital in NY. I came in 5 days ago or so with what I thought was just a swollen liver from taking Lipitor. I found I was right about the liver but they also caught the bottom of my lung with a abdominal CT scan and found a small nodule on my lung. First they told me it was likely tuberculosis. Nice huh? So they had to quarantine me in isolation room here for 4 days while they test sputum and PPD. Well, I don't have TB but they did another CT, a full chest CT, and found 2 more nodules, they are on both lungs. The pulmonologist says it doesn't look like cancer because it is fluffy and not solid, cancer is not like that usually. Of course though, nothing is certain. The original plan before I started typing this was to run blood cultures, run tests for infections, then bronchoscopy, then last resort lung biopsy, which is big time.
The pulmonologist has come into my room here just minutes ago, he has been talking with his colleagues all night evidently, and they now say they don't think they should take the ultra aggressive approach, and that they think it might be a kind of pneumonia. So they are juicing me now with antiobiotics for 14 days. After they get the cultures and tests back (which they are doing tonight) they will send me home on the ab's then CT again in 14 days. They are setting me up in their pulmonary clinic here so I can just show up if things get worse.
I miss talking with all of you, and I miss my dearest bunnies, whom I love. My poor sister is in cardiac ICU tonight at same hospital with heart problems, I have been walking down to see her. My parents have been a godsend and my Dad has taken care of the buns, he has gone totally out of his way (at age 65 with diabetes and leg problems) to do everything Baby Fwan has demanded. I don't deserve such amazing parents. Noone I know has parents like I do, and I am eternally grateful. I now have laptop but work laptop wont work with VPN unfort. I will update Bun Life as much as possible because Baby Fwan's antics are of course, top priority above any and all health issues. My darling Baby Fwan probably thinks her wishing has finally come true, I have vanished!!! In honor of her, I have requested all my eggs be served on pumpernickel bread. I am such a symbolist.
Thank you for reading my antics and welcoming BF into your heart. Will be posting soon. :)
