I was diagnosed on Thurs. 5/09 at the ER. They wanted to admit me, but due to my father's health (long story) I couldn't be confined. After chest X-rays, they gave me an antibiotic IV, two breathing treatments, and let me go. I got scripts for Levaquin and Steroids. I took my last Levaquin today, but still have 3 or 4 more days of steroids. I need to know when I will no longer be contagious to my father - I need to see him, but cannot risk adding more health problems for him. He's not doing very well, and I need to know ASAP if I can go see him yet. It has been one week on antibiotics and steroids and breathing treatments (at home, also). I was also diagnoses with COPD at the time.
