New Year... Same Story

Wednesday was my clinic appointment, and like so many times before, I have not been feeling well. What started as a head cold, traveled into my lungs, and I've been dealing with it all of winter break. I had asked for antibiotics and had started to feel slightly better but then went back the other direction. Fast forward to Wednesday... I woke up feeling off... my stomach was kind of queasy, but I assumed it was just nerves. We drove the 2 1/2 hours all the while, I was thinking about what the doctors were going to say about my lung function that I was assuming would be low. Turns out my lung function had taken a bigger dive that even I expected. It dropped from 41% three months ago to 33%.

After a long discussion about my antibiotic choices (risk of muscle/tendon injuries and tears or antibiotic that I had a weird reaction to last time I was on it), we came up with a game plan. I went for the weird reaction so that I can still continue to workout without the worry of major injuries. The doctor also determined that I have thrush after looking at my throat which was probably caused by my first dose of antibiotics. So... just add another little medication to my daily regimen. The good news is that he wasn't overly concerned because my weight is steady, and everything else has been going well.

Lucky me, I was also due for all my labs. So in comes the nurse who looks at my veins and tells me how wonderful they are. Well... they must not be too great because one stick complete with digging around... no blood. Take two in the other arm, still no luck. Bring in another nurse, and take three, nothing. Finally on the fourth try, she got it. They both apologized profusely, but I assured them that it was just how the day was going.

On the way home, I realized that my stomach was still not feeling right. We made it, and shortly after, it hit me... the stomach bug... what a nice cherry on top to that miserable day. Two days later, I have finally started taking my antibiotics and am hoping that things start looking up. I am supposed to go for a follow up PFT after the antibiotics are done to see if there has been any improvement.


  1. Oh no! I am so sorry. I feel like I have the same story at the moment. Everything from the shockingly low pfts to the stomach bug! Yuck!

    I hope your antibiotics kick in and your pfts bounce back quickly!

  2. My life is beautiful thanks to you, Mein Helfer. Lord Jesus in my life as a candle light in the darkness. You showed me the meaning of faith with your words. I know that even when I cried all day thinking about how to recover, you were not sleeping, you were dear to me. I contacted the herbal center Dr Itua, who lived in West Africa. A friend of mine here in Hamburg is also from Africa. She told me about African herbs but I was nervous. I am very afraid when it comes to Africa because I heard many terrible things about them because of my Christianity. god for direction, take a bold step and get in touch with him in the email and then move to WhatsApp, he asked me if I can come for treatment or I want a delivery, I told him I wanted to know him I buy ticket in 2 ways to Africa To meet Dr. Itua, I went there and I was speechless from the people I saw there. Patent, sick people. Itua is a god sent to the world, I told my pastor about what I am doing, Pastor Bill Scheer. We have a real battle beautifully with Spirit and Flesh. Adoration that same night. He prayed for me and asked me to lead. I spent 2 weeks and 2 days in Africa at Dr Itua Herbal Home. After the treatment, he asked me to meet his nurse for the HIV test when I did it. It was negative, I asked my friend to take me to another nearby hospital when I arrived, it was negative. I was overwhite with the result, but happy inside of me. We went with Dr. Itua, I thank him but I explain that I do not have enough to show him my appreciation, that he understands my situation, but I promise that he will testify about his good work. Thank God for my dear friend, Emma, I know I could be reading this now, I want to thank you. And many thanks to Dr. Itua Herbal Center. He gave me his calendar that I put on my wall in my house.
