Folks, I promise I have NOT abandoned you. I simply haven't felt like posting anything.
As a quick update, the EARLIEST I can get an appointment with a pulmonologist is Oct 8! No big deal; there is only either an ATYPICAL PNEUMONIA or some sort of FUNGUS growing in my lungs. I'm sure it can wait ANOTHER MONTH! (If you think that's bad, wait til the government "fixes" health care!)
I spoke to my local doctor about waiting that long and they are giving me another round of steroids that should tackle fungus.
Don't worry; soon I will be back to my regular, opinionated, snarky self and will write some fabulous stuff worth taking the time to read! ;-)
