Stem Cell Transplant Day 32: in ICU. Breathing Hard.

In ICU with pneumonia. On oxygen and LOTS of meds. Docs don’t know what kind of pneumonia, can’t tell if I’m getting worse or better due to how one possible disease manifests. They want to do a bronchoscopy but can’t without intubating me. They’ve been fasting me for almost two days now in case of intubation. Trying really hard NOT to have to be intubated. In wait and see mode.

    Thinking of you and praying for your health. Wishing you a speedy and full recovery.

  3. Eugie, I’m so sorry! Fingers crossed that intubation will not be necessary and that you’ll soon start feeling better.

  4. You can beat this, Eugie. Don’t let the stupid human suit win. You are more than flesh and bone. Mind and spirit can overcome. You can!

    Stinks. I narrowly escaped incubation when I had pneumonia and was in ICU a few years ago. Thinking of you, hoping you get what you need, grateful for all of your stories so far and selfishly wanting more.

    Eugie:
    I looked for you at Dragon Con this year and I was told you were there, but not able to get out much. I just want you to know my wife and I are praying for you and keep you in our thoughts.
    You have been through so much, but stay strong. There are many of us out here pulling for you to make it through.

    I will have Pixie Sticks waiting for when you get better.
