Living On Oxygen for Life
Finally and Oh man, not yet!!! Friday is the day I begin taking Tyvaso. A package of equipment and medication will arrive tomorrow and a nurse will arrive on Friday to show me how to prepare and use the inhaler. Apparently the inhaler or medication needs distilled water. So, I’ll have to make a run to the grocery store (maybe I can get my husband to do that!) to buy some. I have a dvd somewhere around here that I’m suppose to watch before the nurse gets here but I think I left it in my car. Ooops!
Internally I feel like this is a momentous occasion. Am I ready for this? Mentally, not really. Well, you don’t want me to lie to you, do you? Starting on Friday, I will be taking another medication for my Pulmonary Hypertension. Two very expensive medications. Tracleer and Tyvaso. I truly hope Tyvaso does more than the Tracleer does for me. Though, Tracleer does well to lower the Pulmonary pressures but it does not help me breathe easier or give me more energy. Thus, the reason for me to try the Tyvaso together with the Tracleer.
Wish me luck!
