I was going to type this up on Friday, but I didn't feel like sitting at the computer for too long.
I'm finally on the antibiotics, been taking them for a few days. I don't know if I really feel better yet, too early to say, although I hope to see more improvement over this week and next. I'm not coughing as much as before, but still coughing up all the junk from my lungs as it begins to break up (yeah, nice imagery there).
The serious issue at the moment is that one of the antibiotics can have a reaction with one of my heart medications, stripping away what the body uses to absorb the medication, thereby increasing it's levels in the body (possibly to a toxic degree). For now, the sollution has been to only take a half pill every day. Tomorrow I'll have to go out to either my doctor or the nearby lab for a blood draw so they can check the levels. This is something that needs careful monitoring, so I imagine I'll be in for more frequent bloodwork.
Took down the imeem player for now. It turned my song into a 30 second clip, which I am not happy about. If I can't get that sorted out, I'm giving up on imeem and closing my account. I want to share songs, not clips.
So, that's it for now. I'll pop back in with a progress update soon.
