another appointment

I went to the clinic to give a sputum sample (aka, spit in a cup. yeah, i know, real attractive) so they can determine which organisms (viruses, bacteria, fungi) I have in my lungs. The main two reasons I wanted to have one done were a) because I wasn't getting over this cold I had been fighting and b) I wanted to make sure that I tested negative for a certain strain of bacteria (Burkholderia cepacia) which would make me ineligible for transplant.  And that would be BAD NEWS.
