Quick Update

Visit with Dr. B went well.

So while I still have some fluid rattling around in my left lung and may, in fact, have had a mild, early-stage pneumonia rather than just plain bronchitis (Denis is convinced of this), I’m mending well.

We decided against further antibiotics unless things look to be taking a turn for the worse again, since I’ve had a great response to the antibiotic I finish today.

I got a steroid shot, which really made me appreciate those “ballet muscles” in my hips 😀

Dr.  B also prescribed a different cough medication, since after the first night the original one didn’t help. The new one is the standard codeine-based uber cough suppressant, and I imagine it will do the job.

Since it was time for a re-up, I also picked up my Adderall script.

Part of me was amazed that I was able to walk out of the pharmacy with not one, but two controlled substances from two different substance groups. It took a couple hours to get the scripts filled, but that was because the cough medicine was out of stock but had just arrived with a new shipment.

We had a good dinner at a local Mexican restaurant while we were waiting, so it all worked out.

I also bought more facial tissues. For some strange reason, we’re going through them at a frightening clip of late.

So now we’re on our way down to Nashville to complete our Porchlight Express cargo run for 2015.   Woot!

Tomorrow I need to finally purchase or ballet subscription for this season. One of the spring productions will involve a world-premiere piece set to music composed by our Orchestra’s wunderkind director, Teddy Abrams.  

I’ve been really impressed with what he’s been doing for LSO. Likewise, Robert Curran’s influence on Louisville Ballet has been nothing but positive, so I’m really excited about the spring production.

That’s it for now.  The steroid shot is helping, so assuming that I sheep this weekend, I’ll probably back to class on Monday, but I’ll be taking it easy. A little at a time.

  1. It’s been too long since I’ve checked in with you. Oh Sweetie, I’m sorry you are under the weather. Let that sweetie of your’s spoil you rotten. Take care!☕️❤️

    • Aww, thanks ^-^ Denis has been a gem through all of this. I’m finally starting to really feel better – caught up on sleep yesterday thanks to the new cough medicine, and the steroid shot has really knocked down the inflammation so I can breathe properly.

      I love your latte art emoticon 😀
