I have been fighting it for about a week. Today was the worst ever. about ever 30 seconds I cough until I have sweat pouring off of me. My health care worker stopped by about an hour ago and said I looked terrible and if I even get through the night she will pick me up in the morning and go to the ER. My doctor is on vacation with no back up. I have an appt with her the 12th. but I can't wait that long. We are going to go over my pulm. records for my pet scan. She is an internist and has been the one that have insisted I have "lupus lung".
Anyway back to the matter at hand. I feel like crap and I'm praying to God I don't have pneumonia again. If I do I'll probably be in hospital. I'll let barb or Pat know so someone can let ya all know. Ok well this is the longest I have been up in days so I'm gonna lay back down.
love ya guys

Carol, when I talked to Barb earlier today she said you had gone to the hospital, and I got the impression that you had been admitted. I hope I'm wrong, but then again, it sounds like you did need to be under close doctor's supervision. I hope you're feeling better, and I know you'll let us know when you do.

Hang in there sweetie,

Hi everyone, thanks for the response. Patty yes when she called yesterday I was hooked up to machines and they were trying to decide weather to keep me or not. It's not my regular hospital and my dr. is out of town or I'm sure she would have told them to just admit me. But frankly i got most everything here that they could do at the hospital but they would have heavier doses. I only was given enough cough syrup to last for 2 days so I will be out tomorrow. Than we shall see. Hopfully the levaquin will kick in by than. I have no appetite which isn't the worst thing that could happen. The tech came in yesterday and said I had the lungs of an 80 year old. He was trying to be funny but it almost made me cry. Even though it's not somthing I don't already know.
Ok I'm going now I'm kind of out of it. I posted about barb on the other post if you havn't gotten the latest update.
love ya
