Good news! My lung function is up to 31%! I was shocked because I have been feeling crummier the past two days. I get my PICC line out tomorrow, so that means no more IV antibiotics.

The lung pain is gone and I'm feeling better. My lung function is up to 28%, which is good news, but they want to keep me on IV antibiotics for another week. I'll do anything to stay out of the hospital at this point in the semester!

My lung function is still down (to 25% - yikes!) so I'm going to start home IV antibiotics tomorrow instead of going in the hospital and missing two weeks of classes. They decided I had pneumonia and not a blood clot or punctured lung, so hopefully this pain in my lung will go away once the pneumonia is treated.
