The good news: it’s not pnemonia.

The bad news: I’m still coughing, wheezing, feverish (low-grade) and short of breath. 

My family doc changed the antibiotics I was on as I was seeing no improvement after five days, and he gave me a “Turbuhaler”, a newfangled inhaler that should reduce inflammation in my lungs.

This has been the most annoying illness ever: my trip to England was pretty much a wash-out and I’m worried about upcoming arts events where hacking coughs are discouraged. Next week we have tickets for a play and the orchestra.

It’s been three weeks now and I’m SO annoyed by this. I need to apply for a building permit for some work we’re having done on the house and I have no energy to do the drawings, fill out the forms, and stand in line at City Hall. I managed to get our taxes done, and luckily TurboTax caught some mistakes that I’m sure I made because I was delerious (well, feverish, at least).

Anyway, gotta run. Got another (unrelated) medical test to get to today. Sorry for the boring post. I’ll try to do better next time.
