Hello my name is Cheryl and I live in NY. I just recently got out the hospital. I was in ICU for 3 days and in the hospital for a total of 6 days.. New Years eve I was coughing up blood.. I though it was because I was coughing so much I open a scar in my lungs and cause it to bleed. Well was I wrong.. I have been diagnose with Sarcoidosis in 2001. When I went to the ER, I was told that my lungs had cavities (holes) and I had pnemonia and a fungus growing in my lungs all due to Sarcoid.. I was told if the bleeding didnt stop they would have to operate and remove that part of the lung.. Thank God it stop.. I look at life so different know.. I try to live it to the fullest!!
