Kalydeco, Day 2

Day 1, dose 2: Took my second dose of the day shortly after dinner and I'm happy to report I was not up all night coughing. I didn't really feel any different overnight than I typically do.

Day 2, dose 3: This morning I took my Kalydeco with breakfast again which was 30 grams of fat, 21 grams of protein and 710 calories. I had a slight cough this morning, but nothing more than usual. It has gotten better because the mucus is now mostly yellow with only teeny tiny specks of red blood. So this morning I only did about five minutes of my HTS neb (advised by nurse after she read my previous blog) so I didn't inflame or irritate my lungs anymore.

Day 2, dose 4: Nothing new since taking my second pill this evening, but this morning/afternoon I was coughing up a lot of thick, green mucus. It was a bit hard to cough up at times and there were a couple times when I was coughing so hard I thought I was going to puke, but I never did. I was happy to see all of that nasty mucus coming out of me and I'm hoping that continues all weekend, especially since I'm home.
