My good news for the day

Blog Post created by constanceclum on Jul 29, 2015

Went to the lung Dr. today for several things. I had my CT scan yesterday on my lung nodule, no change and I will repeat it in 6 mo. Normally I would have mentioned it on here so those of you that wanted to would pray for me but I really don't think much about the nodule or scans anymore. I did a 6 minute walk without oxygen and my levels stayed up so I do not need the oxygen in the day time anymore. My blood pressure is still good without medication and my pulse stays in the 80's. While I smoked it was always over 100. He is also referring me to pulm. rehab again.

Quitting smoking improves our lives in so many ways. I went to an AA meeting last evening and saw some old friends that welcomed me back (non-judgemental like you guys) and met some new people. It is so good to be getting out and being around people. I continue to have that persistant feeling of a void in my chest, but once in awhile I will find a long but and I just get this very neutral feeling toward it. Absolutely no attraction or risk of smoking. I've never felt like that toward a cigarette before. I'm not really explaining it well. It's like i see this inaminate object that has nothing to do with me.

I am so grateful to all of you. I hope you are having as good a day as I am.
