He gave me what he called a "gentle inhaler" when I saw him yesterday, and said I wouldn't see improvement for about 3-4 days. I see him on Tuesday when he wants to check my lungs again. I'm hoping he puts me on something stronger so I can breathe when I run and stop this coughing all the time! It's so bad that Mark has said, "If I were sitting next to you on a plane, I would freak out!". Yes, I know it SOUNDS bad, but I'm not contagious and I feel perfectly fine.
I'm not running this week when I have school because I don't want to have to leave the room during testing and interrupt everyone again because I can't stop coughing. I'll wait until this weekend when we go to a trail to run next, then see how I feel on Monday morning if I want to run. I'm not giving up running unless he makes me, and from everything I've read, it's totally managable and I should be able to continue running with proper medication.
