YAY!! No joint for me.... for now anyways!

Yay!!!  I am very HAPPY, I had to blow today (PFT'S) and I was a lil nervous even though I feel so much better then I did last week. Last week I was a lil under the weather and had some Hemoptysis(coughing up blood) My doc thinks it was just going from a very humid climate to a very dry climate. So I upped my Usana and stopped my meds for a bit and then I started them back up and included TOBI which is an inhaled antibiotic and things turned around!

I have an appt on Aug 18th however with the current events I just wanted to make sure I was doing ok. So I blew 1 point lower then May so I didn't have to be locked up. I will blow again on the 18th and we will go from there. In the mean time I will continue TOBI and then I am due to start back on Aztreonam around the 8th. Aztreonam is that study drug that I started in June. That one that takes only 3 minutes. It is a nice change from The 45 min that TOBI takes.

You know, it hurts that you try so hard to stay away. I need something more to look at than pics of people's kids on the walls--gets a little old...what's it going to be next time? Circus theme? Pirates? Moulin Rouge? Can't wait! :)

I'm starting that drug too, Aztreonam. What do you think about it? Why do they put you on "home arrest"?? Where are your PFT's if you don't mind me asking?? I went to the clinic today. I can't wait to start that drug. I hope it really helps! :)Take care!
