 Hope you are feeling better, John. I had bronchial pneumonia for a month and know how horrible it can be. I basically couldn't eat for the whole month since I was constantly coughing my brains out until I would fall asleep from exhaustion. I got down to under 115 pounds. It got brought on when I got too exuberant having a smoke while XC skiing in -5deg weather.

Was one of many folks who dealt with bronchitis this winter, 6-8 weeks of kitten-weak, wheeze/cough.
Thought I was over it enough (and friggin' climbing the walls from inactivity by then) to make plans to play in Huntington with Derek as my first trip out post-'recovery'.

Huge mistake.
Sucking wind the entire approach, dying by the Fan.  Ready to make all sorts of bad choices from hypoxemia but luckily Derek was a good sport and let us boulder up Yale a bit and then beat a retreat back to Pinkham.

On the way home I stopped by the hospital to check on a patient and popped a pulse ox on my finger.
SpO2 = 82%.
Not so good.

Don't push it.

from what i know of you it seems like you like it "run out and scary." 
this sounds way "run out and scary" to me...

tell them to crank up the Lasix, and pray your kidneys are strong enough....

good luck and i truly hope it works out well for you.

respectfully,
