So lately I've been feeling down. Not sad, but sick. It's interesting; when I was younger, I never really knew when I was sick. Every time I needed IV or oral antibiotics it just seemed like "the routine" for fighting some bug. But I never really FELT the effects of the bugs until my teenage years.

Anyways, I've been feeling the bugs lately. My chest has been tighter, I've been congested in my lungs and sinuses, I've been coughing a lot more, I've been EXHAUSTED, and my blood sugars have shot up. I'm hoping my PFTs (pulmonary function tests) aren't too bad. The docs base what kind of antibiotic I'll need on three things: my PFT's, my culture (what's growing in my lungs), and how I've been feeling. If everything is on the downside, I usually opt for IV antibiotics, and if they aren't terrible, I go for oral.

I'm not sure how it works with the port and IVs. This is my first time accessing it (except for when I had it placed), so I don't know if I'd need a hospitalization. Even if I do, its no big deal. Just a tune-up.

Anywho, time for homework make-ups and a nap. *yawn*
