Scott took me out to run some errands this morning. CVS for some patches. 2 more weeks of 21mg and 2 wks of 14 mg. Yay!!!. It wore me out but oh so worth it.

The home health nurse came out yesterday to do her assessment. I will be getting so much help. I told her my goal is to get back to where I was before this illness even if I have to wear oxygen full-time. I will have the R.N., an assistant to help with showering, physical therapy, occupational therapy, resporatory therapy, and a social worker as well as daily monitoring (via technology) of vital signs and I will weigh myself daily. I feel like I've been in a world of medical incompetence over the past week and now I feel like I will be getting some real help. Then on to pulmonary rehab again hopefully.

And, of course, still no smoking. I will admit to some urges the past couple of weeks. Just goes to show you what a devil this addiction is. Today is day 19 and it's definitely a lot easier. I think I'm just missing being a healthier smoker.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
