I did it! I earned on free stay (ok - not even close to free) at our local hospital!! As strange as it sounds, I am so relieved to finally be someone else's problem to take care of. I've fought the good fight at home and have run out of medicines and breathing treatments I can do. I'm scheduled for at least 48 hours and 8 IV steroid treatments. I know I'm in the right place and hopeful that the big guns here will kick me out of this exacerbation and into the stage of recovery.
And how can one not get well after a visit from the two best nurses in the world?!
