The 3 days of 20mg/day of prednisone worked well. My airways opened up and now I find the mucous is easy to cough up.
It feels like bronchitis and I"m hoping I will soon be coughing up less mucous. I don't like to feel it rattle in my chest, as i get worried it may turn into a bacterial infection. But so far so good.
My peak flows aren't bad either. As long as I stay above 400, then there should be no problem with the mucous turning bacterial. So the holidays are going well :-)
