A little silliness helps the medicine go down.

With a nod to Gene Autry; to the tune of "I'm back in the saddle again."

I'm ridin' ole Thumper again,
Chasin' that ole Devil phlegm.
If I don't git him now there's always the next round.
I'm determined to win in the end.

Whoopi-ty-aye-yay, doin' it twice a day.
Ridin' ole Thumper again.

Whoopi-ty-aye-oh,we're givin' it a go.
Ridin' ole Thumper again.

@thumperguy Nice lyrics! I don't think Aerosmith will mind.

Aerosmith: “You know you drive me up the wall
The way you make good on all the nasty tricks you pull “

Were they singing about MAC and BRONCH?

Teri, Feeling fine which I do most of the time. Problem has been febrile flare-ups every five months which always require antibiotics to defeat. I’m right now on the threshold of entering the promised land of six or more months since the last flare. So far I’ve not suffered anything like so many forum members do. I often feel like a dilettante with no cred among the pros.

Teri, You asked, "How are you feeling" And I said,"Feeling fine which I do most of the time. Problem has been febrile flare-ups every five months which always require antibiotics to defeat. I’m right now on the threshold of entering the promised land of six or more months since the last flare." And here's the thing, I'm fully convinced that to the extent I can reduce the frequency of exacerbations it will be a result of moving from a low-strengh saline neb to 7%. The change resulted in impressively more sputum coming up. And here's the other thing. This board gets full credit for revealing to me that saline fluid is available in different concentrations. It's disturbing that had it not been for stumbling onto Mayo Connect I would almost surely still be huffing 0.09% which wasn't getting the job done. It's also disturbing that neither Pulmo I've seen ever mentioned (and I suspect) didn't even know about the range of choices available; indeed I' got the impression when my current Pulmo learned of, or at least was reminded of,the array of strengths available, it was the first time it crossed his mind. None of this, what seems to me a game changer, would have happened but for the good offices of the members of this board. I'm grateful to everyone here. Don

You’re showing your age by knowing who Gene Autry was. I also remember him, though, so I’m in the same age group :).

I echo your sentiments about being grateful to the forum. I too learned about the benefits of using 7% saline here and I’ve finally made the transition from 3% to 7%!

Take care.
