Here is an account of what happened today:
|6:00am||Got up and showered.|
Started my travel to hospital...
|7:50am||Arrived at the hospital.|
|8:40am||By this time I had my BMI, temperature, blood pressure and ECG done.
Hardest part was to keep quiet during tests as talking would hinder the test and therefore would have to start again. I wasn't allowed to do anything at all during the tests such as read, use mobile or listen to music for the same reason.
|9:00am||I was asked to do a urine sample mid-steam. I asked where the nearest brook was. I think the staff realised by this time I have a good sense of humour.|
|9:30am||I did a breathing test 1/3, which took 7 minutes to complete. I passed...I can breath!|
|9:45am||Breathing test 2/3. Guess what? I passed again! LOL|
|10:15am||Breathing test 3/3. I think I've convinced them now I can breathe. No more breathing tests.|
|11:15am||Lung function FEV1=2.15; FVC=4.65.|
|12:00pm||Blood samples taken and all is done for today until Monday, 19 October 2015.|
