Hi everybody,
Thanks for all the healing thoughts. I saw my doctor today and she thinks I am doing somewhat better. Still doing nebs every 2-3 hrs and she isn't even going to begin trying to taper the prednisone till maybe later this week if I can decrease the nebs to every 4-6 hours. I am out of work till further notice and earliest could go back is next week. I also have thrush from all the steroids and antibiotics but go nystatin for that. I am all swollen but the weight gain is only 4 lbs so far which is pretty good seeing how much steroids they had me on and still have me on. I really feel like today I have really begun to turn the corner. Still can't do much except sit, read, watch tv, and computer but atleast I am breathing. Minimal activity and talking still brings on sob/wheezing but is much better. I just am so antsy to do something. I want to really thank everybody for all there hugs and well wishes. I can't wait to get back on the program again even if it may be a little while. Keep sparking.

Thanks everybody for you warm wishes. I have a call into my doctor because I am getting worse again. Having to take nebs every 1-2 hours instead of 2-3 since 4 am when I overslept one dose. Also woke up coughing up thick yellow mucous and question whether I need an antibiotic. I don't want to have to go back but if this doesn't get better may have to. I wonder if my doctor can increase my prednisone on 60mg right now so I don't have to go back. I will keep you guys posted.

I'm glad you made it through that episode. I've been where you are. Keep that AC going. I hope your asthma gets under better control. Those kind of attacks can be scary.

Just got home from hospital was in ICU and then med-surg. Had to have IV solumedrol, magnesium, continuous nebs, and o2. On Prednisone, nebs every 2 hours, advair, robitussin w/codiene, and ambien cause with all these drugs not sleeping. I have horrible moonface because of the high dose IV steriods. With all this edema I am not even going to weight myself until I am off the steriods. And the steroids are making me so emotional. Nevermind when it rains it pours and I got my TOM too. Now home resting with meds and can at least be sparking in spirit. Guess I am not going to be back on the exercise train for a little while. But I am home at least. This season is being the worse. This the first time I have had to be admitted since I was 16. I am home with my son and my husband and in the A/c. Hope everybody has a good weekend and keep sparking.
