Update on Pneumonia Recovery:
Saturday, March 10, 2018      2 comments

Physical status: much the same as last month -- only I don't "feel" the sputum in my lungs anymore. I am coughing much less. My lung capacity seems to have slipped a bit --either because I am no longer taking medicine or because I've stopped ... Read more

I've felt better and better, although my breathing capacity hasn't improved and I can still feel that last bit of leadenness (phlegm) in my right lung. I went to exercise Wed. and Friday and did okay. I can tell it has been so long since I've... Read more

...saw the doc. I am doing fine. He convinced me that there is no reason to fear that I am contagious, and showed me how to use the devices I had been given at the hospital. He thought I might heal quite a bit sooner than 6 months since I am ... Read more

Day before yesterday was a good day. I felt easier and deeper breathing. Yesterday was a bad day -- weaker, shallow breathing and a new pain in my lung. More coughing too. I was probably too active day before -- I went out (to see Star Wars) for... Read more
