Good morning sisters. Vickie, welcome to our circle, and we will be praying that the reduction in your daughter's abdomen is truly a sign of miraculous healing.
An update on my pneumonia. As I have not improved since my visit to the ER on Tuesday, I called my oncologist's office today and they are adding a second antibiotic along with lasix and potassium. Even though I have no visible swelling, I could have internal water retention. I've not run a fever (not taking anything that would bring it down) and I have only a dry cough. I've had bronchitis many times, and I'm just stumped by the strange nature of this. If I stay in my recliner, I can breathe, though with a bit of effort. But when I get up and move around, when I sit back down I'm gasping for breath. Just never had anything like this before. Anyway, the MO's nurse said nothing had grown on the cultures, so I don't know what that means, but they will do another chest X-ray when I come in on Tuesday for my appointment, and if I get worse over the weekend, there is a hospital here in our suburb where I can go to the ER and hopefully not have the kind of nightmare I had at their main facility in the city on Tuesday.
Thank you all for your continued prayers and I continue to pray for each of you.
