I've hit just a little bump in the road again...started feeling extremely tired last Wed. afternoon and joints hurt, chest was starting to feel achy. I called my dr. Fri morning and they put me on two oral antibiotics and made an appointment for me to come in on Monday. So I went in yesterday. My lung function had only dropped a couple of points and Dr. M decided to add a prednisone burst for 5 days and stay on the two antibiotics for a month. And increase airway clearance. So that's the plan, unless I get worse...then we will go to IVs. WHICH I haven't had to do since Sept!! So I get tired of piccs and get a port put in in Oct. and haven't even had to use it yet...pretty impressive, don't you think? I'm still trying to bond with it...I probably won't really love it until I need IVs again! They flushed it yesterday. I've been going to the hospital to get it flushed each month. Last month's flush wasn't particularly enjoyable, I had to be stabbed three times! (wincing)
My plan is to feel better very soon, like this week...it's just a little bump. I'll be back.
