    high wbc and crp usually indicate an infection is bacterial, although crp would likely be higher than 15 in that case.

    in case your crp shows up over 40 now they might want to hospitalize you nevertheless, but hopefully it's just a persistent upper respiratory tract infection and you'll just get more antibiotics. 15 is quite high, but not urgent, and not that uncommon in rheumatoid pts.

    fingers crossed, my guess is you'll just have to put up with more ABs and take extra care for a while.

    I rather be on antibotics then have another hospital stay this year. My fingers are crossed too. I'll be sure to post when I find out what's going on.

    you probably just haven't recovered well from the bronchitis. rarely, it is caused by bacteria, so that may still be there, or you can get strep throat after fighting viral infections. they'll know quickly. if that's all that's going on you'll be fine.

    yes, keep us posted.
