Hi, I feel a vent coming on !!!!
I have one week to feel better. My flare is at the 3+ wk mark. On Wednesday I went
to my PCP and it turns out I also have a bacterial bronchitis infection. Started taking a
strong antibiotic Wednesday evening. I still am coughing up gunk. I won't be able to
take my next wkly dose of Methorexate because it is a low dose chemo drug that
suppresses my immune system. I take it for my MCTD. Don't know how that will affect me.
Here is the kicker, next Saturday I am supposed to fly in to Wisconsin to visit family.
My dad was diagnosed with lung cancer the summer of 2008. He had a part of his lung
removed and needs oxygen 24/7. My dad's health is declining and I really want to see
him. I want to be well enough to travel. I fly to WI every 3-4 months, but I don't know
if my dad has that long. I was told that I should be past the contagious state but I still
worry. I will be staying at my daughter's home. She is married and I have a precious
little grandaughter. I don't want to make anybody sick. I can deal with the flare but I
sure want the bronchitis to be gone.
ooooOO that felt good. Thanks
