I haven't posted much about it outside of the chit chat thread, but I've been struggling with a mystery illness for the past 8 weeks...Dr first thought it was bronchitis, then walking pneumonia, then a more severe form of pneumonia, and I've been treated for all of those...but after weeks on two antibiotics that didn't help and multiple inconclusive chest x-rays, i've been referred to a pulmonologist to test for some more unusual/rare lung infections & diseases.

Initially the pulmonologist wasn't going to be able to see me for another couple of weeks, but based on how sick I am I just found out that my Dr convinced him to come in off of vacation to see me tomorrow morning.

I'm not sure what's going to happen, although I expect they'll probably do a CT scan and some bloodwork minimally....but any T&Ps you could send my way tomorrow would be really appreciated. I'm hoping this is not a serious as some of the things my Dr thinks it could be...

*UPDATE*
Well I'm happy to say it doesn't look like it's going to be anything horrible (yay!)...it does require another 3 weeks of new meds (more/new antibiotic, steroids & a ton of asthma meds via nebulizer 4x a day), but the pulmonologist says I should start feeling better sometime next week and if I don't I have to go right back in to be reassessed, but he's pretty confident the new meds will get me back to normal quickly

Thank you everyone for all your T&Ps...it was SUCH a huge relief after he ran a bunch of tests and looked at my x-rays and said "well we can definitely rule out really serious conditions like TB & lung cancer"...after hearing that it almost didn't matter what he thought it was since it wouldn't be either of those!

And Patty - the pulmonologist wasn't sure about all the meds being safe for BFing so he called our pedi while I was there just to make sure (he was sooo nice!)...everything is fine for BFing so I don't have to worry about weaning her either!

Lara, you know I thinking of you and I am hoping that it's nothing too serious, I also hope that whatever treatment they need to do it will still allow you to BF, I know how much it means to you and express that to the doctors.
Let us know what happens. I'll be thinking about you.
HUGS

Lara, I'm so glad that the meds are ok with BF, I know it means a lot to you to continue, so I am very happy that you can. It's good news that it's no something bad/horrible. I hope you get better and start feeling better very soon.
