@terryb1 One, M gordonae, continues to be present in small numbers and the ID doc, in consultation with NJH, says they are not significant. 2 others (I forget which) each only appeared once, in small numbers, then disappeared. One was though to be a contaminated specimen because of 3 taken and tested the same week, it only appeared in one.
I like that you have a plan for retesting – and that you are dealing with the best experts.
Do you nebulize and use an airway clearance device regularly? I feel that really helps keep my sputum thin & clear.

@sueinmn @terryb1 I have just had gordonae show up also, but as sue says my Dr thinks it will just go as small amount probs contaminated specimen.
