Pulmonary Fibrosis & Summertime Tea

July 6, 2011

Copd 140x106

Reading about Pulmonary Fibrosis of late. Mother has just been diagnosed. Not good. Oxygen. Infrequent steroid use for acute situations. Palliative care to alleviate cough & shortness of breath, provide comfort. That’s it. Not good.

However, since a lung biopsy was not done, it could very well be Sarcoidosis which is treatable, with exacerbations & remissions. Awaiting results of CT… I wonder if they even did an Arthritis Profile… She’s feeling better on the steroids already… we’ll see.
