Things are about the same this morning, so at least it's not any worse. I haven't taken my temp yet, but I don't feel like I have a fever right now. My chest isn't as bad right now, so that's good, but the congestion is pretty rotten to the point where I might have a sinus infection. Barb, I definitely agree that since I am immuno suppressed that I should get checked. I'm planning to call my doctor in the morning to to get everything checked out. Babs, thanks for the reminder about fluids - I need a constant reminder of that, especially when I am sick or flaring. We don't have much planned today, so I'll be a couch (or bed) potato along with everyone else on here who is having a rough time with illness and flares (I think there are quite a few of us).

(((((((hippi)))))))), I'm so gratful you aren't worse but yes the more fluids you drink the thinner all the crap in your lungs is and the easier it is to cough it up. I'm glad you are going to get into your doctor. this kind of stuff can get real bad real fast. This coming from the queen of the lung disease.

God bless and get lots of rest.
Love ya
God Bless

Glad to hear you'll be going to the dr. tomorrow. You have to get whatever this is under control so you can be well enough to go on your trip and enjoy!!! Good luck and let us know what you find out.
