I was diagnosed with bronchiectasis 26 years ago. I was 14 years old and the doctors believe that I got it from an infection in my lungs. I will give you my definition of the disease, but please feel free to look up what the medical definition is. So basically, bronchiectasis is the inflammation of airways in the lungs that causes a large amount of mucous which in turn causes infections, because of the damage to the lungs, my cilia doesn't work to bringing up the mucous so I have pocket of fluid in my lungs. So because of this I am constantly getting infections.
I used to be able to go 6 months without a flare up, but since January, I have been sick on on off for three months. People with my condition usually are treated with antibiotics. I was on a powerful antibiotic for years but recently I have grown a resistance to it and it doesn't work anymore. So I was in the hospital and experimented with different antibiotics. I am allergic to a lot of them, so my options are limited.
So I have found a few that work, but the problem is when I am done taking them, a week later I am knocked back on my butt sick in bed. So I constantly have to on something and I am just now experimenting with this and keeping my fingers crossed that it works. So with that said, homeschooling has not been constant lately.
I have been trying to brainstorming on how to adjust our homeschooling routine when I feel really bad. I would love to hear to what other homeschooling families that either have a disabled child or the parent who is teaching is disabled handles days or maybe weeks when sitting at the dining room table is not an option. Let me know in the comments.
