I got here at around 9:30ish. I was going to have an equipment check, which happens once a year. It’s exactly what it sounds like. I bring my vest and such, make sure the settings are good and I’m using it right.
My mom is sick so she canceled it since the appointment was set for 8:30 in the morning.
Once I reached the floor for clinic we checked in and waited. After taking weight, height, and vitals, I went into pfts. Like the equipment check, with cf you do what is called a full once a year.
My FVC was 80, and FEV1 was 85. I’ve been having breathing problems and currently have a lung infection so it’s kind of a baseline for those standards.
I checked medication, treatments and symptoms, saw my dietitian, the nurses, pulmonary therapist, and also got a throat culture done. With my dietitian I did a grip strength test, which was under the 50th percentile so I had to talk to a physical therapist.
My doctor came in and all is well. Even though I don’t feel well, I might have gotten a cold from my parents but I think I have a lung infection. Afterward I went to applebee’s for lunch and went to michaels and got a new kneaded eraser.
Thats all for now,
