Update

I have had that song stuck in my head for the past few days. I decided to blog about my lung infection - which is something that I have been dealing with chronically for the past six months. No one knows what it is and antibiotics make it worse. Last week, I went in for a bronchoscopy, which is a procedure that I have never had done before. The doctor found "goop" in my lungs as well as irritation in my lungs and nose. He took samples of my lung tissue and of the goop. I find out the results tomorrow. I can't say that I'm not a little terrified. I keep wondering if it is something horrible that can't be cured. It feels like I have pneumonia. It's really hard to breathe, there is a lot of pressure on my chest, and I keep coughing. I hope for the best.
