Bleed just hit me. Updated

Was just getting to lay down and go to bed and my lungs started bleeding. First time of considerable volume in about 2 years.
If you remember previous blogs I had very bad bleeds between 2002 and 2008 until I had my lungs embolised* combined with starting a continued use of nebulised antibiotics. Colistin and Tobi alternated month to month.
So I’m sitting real still. Not coughing. Shallow breathing hoping that the area bleeding is healing and clotting up.
I’m kind if in a state of dock at the moment. It’s always a possibility but I never thinks it going to happen again.
It’s strange it happens while im sitting in bed and not when I was belted the boxing bag for cardo 7 hours before. You can never really predict a bleed.
Hopefully it does worsen or come back before I don’t want an ER visit.

Update; 11.30 next morning. No further bleeding had a relatively good night sleep considering the drama that went on. I basically had a shower. As I go very cold during bleeds. Propped my bed up with pillows so my head was much higher than my heart. I find this lesson chances of reocirrent as the bloods not pooling up stars in your lungs and putting them under pressure.
I guess today is going to be a day where I walk around on egg shells.

Update: midnight Saturday. So it’s about 2 days since bleed. And knock on wood there hasn’t been anymore. Although I have felt very crook. I did some light exercise but I was pretty puffed plus the mental aspect of worry about a bleed has made me puffed. I described this to my mum by say you know where you have a stiff neck your body starts moving different even without trying well that’s the same for me with bleeds it doesn’t matter how much I want to just carry on and say jump back into exercise. It won’t happen my body shuts down and somehow makes sure I’m puffed no matter what I do. Even if I don’t have a chest infection. U guess just like stopping head movement with a stiff neck your body prevents excessive lung movement after bleeds.
That was a big muddle of words but I’m theorizing out loud.
