The new medication combination seems to be working. My coughing is down to tolerable. I even slept soundly last night only getting up twice for Lucy. LOL.
I didn’t have to use my rescue inhaler more than once all day.
Three cheers for improvement!
A month or so ago, I had my first appointment with a pulmonologist. My new doctor sent me to him in hopes we could find a cure of some sort for my chronic cough.
He started me on a regimen of Flonase before bed and one Claritin a day, and made a follow-up appointment for me in a few weeks.
Wow, it worked well.
Then on the 14th I got the Strep pharyngitis, the following day it tacked on reactive airway disease with wheezing.
Back to my new family practitioner I went. Saw another person there since it was my doctor’s day off. I liked this one as well.
I could not catch my breath at all. It was so bad this doctor decided to have me do a breathing treatment before she took a second listen to my chest.
She prescribed an inhaler to use every 4 hours as needed, a tapering dose of a steroid, and told me to continue my antibiotic.
That brings me to the 21st. The day I had an appointment for a recheck with the pulmonologist.
I am still wheezing and needing the rescue inhaler at this point.
He decided to give me a couple samples of Symbicort. I am to use it 2 puffs twice a day. He says I should be back to normal in a few weeks.
I won’t be seeing him again until March.
Which one of these two shirts did I wear today?
No, seriously, I have to ask this. Where are all the raging people that should be marching on DC screaming over The Orange Buffoon’s unconscionable too many days in office?
Where are the outraged people?
Where the 10 million men and women marching on DC to take back our government from the traitors who strip away all our hard work of the past decade?
This government means to kill those of us who are not of sound body, mind, economics, or their Hitler like ideal of what the people should be.
We are not slaves to the rich meant to subsist on little. We are the people for which this government was meant to be.
Resist! Revolt! Take it back!!!
