    It wont undo your pneumonia but know that you have inspired me to use my breathing thingy post surgery this week- you have helped someone else.
    I am so sorry that you have had this complication!

    Use it! Hooray! And if you run a fever and start coughing up green before you leave the hospital, insist on antibiotic BEFORE you go home. So much for my thinking "this is nothing and I'll get better once I'm home." :-)

    Healing thoughts to you!!!

    I used the heck out of that thing. It made my whole chest, neck and back open up and feel so much better. My doc was a stickler about that.
