No hospital trips this summer

Summer is officially over, and it smells like Fall outside. I made it through with no hospitalizations nor trips to the Emergency Room. This is slightly epic for me as this hasn’t happened for years. I’ve still had a rough time, did some steroids, did 5 courses of steroids, and missed a chunk of work. My doc asked me to take probiotics to help my digestive system recover from all the meds.

I’ve never taken a probiotic before and I’ve always heard how most of them are scammy. I asked my doc what she would recommend and was told to check out Align or Florstor. I was pleased to learn they don’t require refrigeration, and was able to get a generic at CVS.

Overall I feel like I’m doing better and have high hopes for this Fall and coming Winter. I also picked up a digital peak flow meter last week that shows FEV1. I’ve give some thoughts on it soon.
