Due to some changes this week, the hubby said it was probably a good idea for me to post a quick update so here goes.
I had to give the doctor’s office a call this week. The coughing and everything that goes along with the coughing was starting to get really annoying this week. I was also running a low grade fever on and off that was making me miserable so calling the doctor seemed like a good idea. Since my regular doctor is out of town until June 3rd the nurse practitioner decided that maybe a round of antibiotics was in order to treat the fever just in case I had an infection. As far as the cough, shortness of breath and tight breathing goes, she decided to change my pain medication and put me on something stronger that should also help to relax my airways more. After taking the antibiotic a couple of days the fevers seem to be gone for now. I’m still reserving judgement on the new pain medication. I think I need to take it a few days before I will really be able to tell if it’s actually helping.
I just want to say thanks to everyone for the continued well wishes, good thoughts and prayers! It certainly helps me to maintain my sunny disposition! (hehehe)
