Pneumonia Update

I finally made it to the pulmonologist in Tulsa yesterday. They measured my lung/breath capacity, took blood, took an X-ray, etc. The doctor seemed to be extremely competent with the obligatory dry sense of humor.

After a lengthy interview, he hummed and hawed quite a bit and finally said, "I don't know what you have." In a moment of levity, he then quickly said, "well, I know what you have, I'm just not going to tell you!". I thought that was the funniest thing I'd heard all day!

The long and short of it is this: I'm improving. I don't have a fever. The blood test MAY tell what I had. He didn't give me any more medicine. I have a follow up appointment in two months. If my condition worsens, I'm to contact him immediately.

He suspected it was a fungus of some sort. Didn't know if it came from Africa, Asia, or my CPAP machine....

In any case, thanks to all who have been praying for me. I feel so much better and praise God for it!
