Room with a Different View

When I came to after the bronchoscopy, the doc informed me they were moving me from the oncology wing to the ICU.

They found blood in my lungs. Coupled with the clotting issue in the liver, these are hard to treat at the same time. Thus why they want me in the ICU in case an emergency procedure is required.

Docs think it's better to treat the blood in my lungs first (which has caused a lot of coughing). Today I received two platelete transfusions, a blood transfusion, and steroids to try to fix this.

Despite another rough day, I feel okay at the moment. Made it through another day, and I have so much to look forward to once I start feeling better.
