Popping Cancer Update: "You have pneumonia in your good lung."

That's a quote from today's pulmonologist visit.

It's small, but it's in my right lung (the good lung) and it explains why my breathing has gotten worse over the weekend. I start oxygen and antibiotics tonight.

Thought you'd want to know.

ADDENDUM: The left lung seems the same. The x-ray showed either fluid or something around the left lung still, but to go after it would require another procedure in the hospital, which the pulmonologist doesn't want to try until this new stuff gets cleared up. In any case, no chemotherapy until I can get my breathe on.

Any word on the other lung?

Oxygen and antibiotics equals rest. See doctors are wonderful sometimes. Think rest now and then think strong. Our prayers and thoughts are with you.

Sending healing light to your lungs, Dan. God is close and loves you very much - even when it's hard to breathe.
