A Cure, A Cure!

The new doctor (see previous post) tested a bucket-load of blood and came up with two different "atypical" (whatever that means) pneumonia-causing bacteria with which I'm infected. A carefully chosen antibiotic that's known to knock them both out. Less than 48 hours later, I ran up a flight of stairs.

I carried my briefcase and assorted other stuff up three flights when I got home from work yesterday. At a good clip. Without getting winded. And this morning, again. Took The Offspring to school, and scurried right back up those three flights when I got home.

I can't quite believe it, actually. After five months, I think it's going to take a while to sink in.


  1. Wow, glad you are on the mend!! 5 MONTHS... I bet you almost forgot what it was like to feel healthy! :(

  2. Unbelievable. Great great great news that you are feeling better, and frustrating that this took so long. Move forwad and embrace feeling better!

  3. Oh Heide, I'm so sorry it took so long to diagnose but I am thrilled that it was such an easy fix. Congratulations on your new found health!

  4. Okay, that's amazing. And to think that you had to go out of network...imagine if you hadn't had that choice. Argh.
