Giving Colistin another try...

This morning I got up early and decided that yes I may be off work today, but I can't take a break from running. Instead of going to the gym I ran around my neighborhood. It was the perfect weather for it too, cool crispy fall-like in the low 70's, ahhhh. I did 2 miles in 28 minutes. I have to say I really feel a difference when running outside. I suppose it's all the hills that I don't have on the treadmill. I'm excited since I only have 5 more days until my 5K!

I'm giving Colistin another go. It has caused me some bronchospasms in the past, but I decided to see how I did this month. So far so good I must say. I think I have to realize that It does make my lungs tighter, but it's killing the bugs. My FEV1 meter shows a decline when I'm on it, but in the big picture the PA is having it's butt kicked so I should be happy. It's VERY easy for me to obsess over that little monitor. Heck if It's not preventing me from running It can't be that bad right? ;)

Avoiding the Plague

Scott has had a terrible cold/virus since last Friday. I've been doing everything possible to avoid it believe me. It does help to live in a split foyer I must say. Scott's been living downstairs and I've been upstairs. I think we've both washed our hands to the point where they just may fall off ;) Oh well, you can't be too careful right? I just hope he gets to feeling better soon, I don't catch it, and we can actually be in the same room together. I really have missed my buddy aka wonderful husband this week for sure.
