This would be a 5 day; yes I said a five day. It is the best I have felt since I became ill with pneumonia back in May. Clearly the drugs are working, yes I know I maybe a bit premature, but I have had a good day. I am still not sleeping well, so that makes the day even better. I could actually look a Doctor in the eye and say Yes I do feel better. I do little tests during the day, could I walk the 40 feet to the mail box and back without gasping, did I have to rest as I washed my hair, how many times did I just have to stop to catch my breath, and today I passed all of them, not with flying colors but I passed. And while I feel better, this by no means means I am out of the woods. I am still extremely short of breath, but today the bounce back was so much better, the recovery time before I could commence doing whatever I was doing is shorter. These are all very good signs. I still have 3 more days of intense drug therapy which I will stay with until the meds are gone, and I do have an appt with my infectious disease doctor Thursday. Most likely the next report will come after that appt.
