We don't really know anything thing more than we did. The only thing we really learned about the oxygen sensor test was that they 'average' the numbers over the hours of the night, and if the number hits a certain 'consistently' then they do the machine thing. I thought we blew past GPAs years ago? So there's no 'official' COPD diagnosis, or at least no one is willing to commit and say so. I am so freaking rattled right now- and disgusted, disappointed, pissed off...the whole gamut...we both are.
About the only thing the cardiologist was willing to say was that there was 'significant' lung damage, but wouldn't elaborate on how much/what that meant. She wants him to see another doctor- one that's booked up for months in advance. I'm kinda of my husband's frame of mind right now...these past two weeks have been almost effing unbearable- and they want him to wait for months to find out if his primary is a blistering idiot who jumped the gun on a diagnosis she had no authority to make?
Really, really tired right now, dear friends...just wanted to let you know what we (didn't) find out since you've been so...everything. There are no words.
I'll try to be a little more coherent tomorrow so I can thank you properly for all your love and support, because I'm not worth even half a damn right now. *hugs you*
