[On the mend] Thank you for all the prayers & messages! Last Monday, I was hit with an awful influenza-like illness. Unfortunately, I got the textbook “secondary bacterial infection” as I acutely worsened despite every OTC, rest, & hydration. I knew I should go to the hospital (I was sicker than patients I’ve taken care of!), but went to Urgent Care instead. T > 102F (even with Tylenol & Ibuprofen), HR 120s, O2Sat low 90%s. The provider did an RPP & wanted to give me Tamiflu (wrong answer!) but thankfully did a Chest XRay instead. Infiltrates throughout right lung, mainly RLL. Pneumonia! Then she asked, “So what antibiotic do you want?” Thankfully, I’m on the mend! Hopefully soon I’ll be up for doing social things & finally celebrating, but for now - just wanted to say a big ‘thank you’!
