Yucky Sinuses!

I have been battling a sinus infection for a few weeks. I thought it allergies but it moved into my airways. Now I have broncial pnemonia. So I am on inhaled Tobi and levaquin for 2 weeks. I feel like I just can't catch a break.

I am still waiting for results from my biopsy. Please pray for no rejection. My body needs a break. My lung functions are down quite a bit but the doctors think it is from the pnemonia. Let's hope these meds work and I bounce back quickly.

I met with a diabetes doctor a few weeks ago. it seems like my blood sugars are under control. I am hoping that now my prednisone amount is down to 7.5mg, I will see a difference in my numbers. I didn't take my long acting insulin last night (I had a brain cramp) and I woke up to a blood sugar of 119. I was very happy with that!

Other than the continuous health issues life has been pretty uneventful. I have been going up to camp just about every weekend. A weeks ago I went to see Lifehouse and Daughtry in concert with my husband and my darling friend Andrea. The week before that Brian and I bought a 1999 Heritage Harley Davidson. It is so much nicer than our 1982 roadster. We have been on a couple of rides. We have been out on our boat once and took a boat ride on Brian's uncle's boat this weekend. It has been pretty nice weather here in Maine.

I am excited I got tickets for Maine Day at the Redsox on July 18th. This will be the first game I have been able to go to in a few years. Last year, I just didn't feel healthy enough to go. It will be nice to walk from the parking garage to the park without needing oxygen.

I am still going to Boston just about every week. I still can't drive so I am starting to feel like a burden on my friends and family. I hope they give me my driving privileges back soon.
