@plexicone Hi Steve, I realize it has been a few years since you posted this but I still want to say thanks for sharing. I was online in the ICU for 4 days and 2 on a respirator with ARDS. Like you, I am not sure what caused my ARDS but my hospital discharge packet said I also had pneumonia. It sounds like you have long term lung damage. That must be a huge change in your life. I have been out of the hospital for about 6 weeks now. Like you, I still have some activities like just walking up 2 flights of stairs that get me totally winded. Glad to hear I am not alone and my post-ICU life is a normal thing for survivors.
