Relief in small doses

You never know who’s reading your blog. I guess that’s part of the fun of it. Grin!

Today I had a long talk with someone in the know about HPS pulmonary fibrosis. She was reassuring that this nagging cough might not be the dreaded pulmonary fibrosis cough, but rather a restrictive airway asthma-type cough. This still isn’t good. It’s important to keep asthma under control to try to slow down the fibrosis – but it’s a lesser rung on the ladder, sort of speak.

The reasoning she presented made sense. I was able to calm down a bit.

Still, today was not one of my most productive days. Sunday I was a work horse. Yesterday I was a workhorse with a late start in the race. Today, I’m the 30-year-old nag in the back of the pasture just trying to stay upright. I’ve felt so tired all day. Oh well, tomorrow is another day.
