Getting Back to Normal

It has been six days since my last antibiotic dose and it seems like I am back to my baseline.  No more headaches, which means my energy level is back up.  I am back to a more regular schedule at the gym.  And back in the pool since being PICC free!  I went to water aerobics today and it felt great to be back in the water.  Most important, my PFTs are back to baseline too.  My FEV one is back to 91%, just where I was in October.  It took a lot of work to get back there and it is going to take a lot of work to stay there.  But seeing a 15% drop in such a short time is enough motivation for me to keep up with all of my meds, treatments, exercise, and remembering to find time to rest.  All that is left is checking in with the doctor to hear his thoughts on the reaction to the medication.


  1. Woo hoo Colleen!! Way to kick some seriuos CF butt my cyster!!! Good luck with the Dr. let us know how it goes.

  2. So happy to hear your making a come back. I feel you and I are on the same wave length recently. I, too, am getting back into the grove of things as I've been on a downward trend since October. Phew!!

    I'd be interested to know what comes of your drug reaction, since I experienced the same thing.
