    I'm feeling better today. I did a lot around the house, was able to keep my food down and walked very moderately around the yard. I am interested to see what the Pleural effusion test will identify and then to confirm if I can increase my exercise or if it is still a "bed rest" situation.

    The days I feel good I want to "stretch myself" but the days I feel bad I just want to practice breathing. I wish there was a happy middle.

    Went out today and shopped for groceries. Was not able to stand for very long, but all the getting in and out of the car did make some exercise. I guess I walked at least a 1/4 mile total today. All the steps do add up.

    I got this test done, doctor confirms the CPAP is working. My oxygen drops into the 80s at night which is why I still feel tired.

    Next week I have some kind of pulmonary effusion tests, looking for peripheral blood clots and scar tissue, requires admittance to hospital in the BIG town.

    Used my wheelchair today when I went out and it helped my stamina but still came home and took a 2 hour nap. Headed to bed now.
