Really Struggling

by Hannah the Zebra

Don’t know what to tell you guys.  I’m really struggling.  The second antibiotic didn’t work either, and by then, while the sinus infection was somewhat controlled, the bronchitis had turned serious.  I showed up this past Monday at the hospital to get my half day magnesium sulfate infusion, and my nurse said it wasn’t safe to start the treatment until my breathing was stabilized. So they transported me down to ER where I was admitted for 4 hours while they gave me IV steroids and and additional breathing treatment.  Oh, and changed the antibiotic.  Which is working, thank god.  I have no particularly uplifting words today, I’m afraid.  This has been the most frightening infection I have had since I was diagnosed, and I’m still struggling to get some energy back. Man, those IV steroids are hard on your system. At least they only needed one dose, instead of 3 days of doses like last time.  I’ll post when I can.  Please send good thoughts and prayers.
