Evidently I do not have ABPA First off, how about a little aside on the blood work. (Believe me, THIS is worth an "aside".) While having my blood drawn I asked for an approximate time-line for the results. The kind and talented lady said "weeeeeeellllll we don't do this particular test very often and it's going to a lab in San Juan, Capistrano... " Seriously? Yes, seriously. I will no longer complain about the $16 copay for blood draws. I'm only familiar with the name Capistrano because of the old song.... I wasn't even certain it was a real place. Well, it is. And the people of the lab of Capistrano have verified that I do NOT have ABPA. So. Nice. Now I can come off the steroids maybe? Apparently I will know more next week after there is some kind of discussion as to the next best step. I have finally gotten my head around the new schedule and it's not that bad.... Vest, Nebs, Exercise, Inhalers, Maintenance Azithromycin. It's just a bloody good thing I'm not trying to hold down a job at the same time.
