I have Pneumonia!
Monday, December 03, 2012
That was a shock! My head started to ache really badly when I coughed, and I started to cough up a little blood yesterday morning in the general bug gunge, and as it was still happening this morning I went to the doc. She listened to my chest and could hear crackling noises in my upper right lung, so I am on antibiotics and have to go to the hospital for blood tests and a chest x-ray.
I was NOT expecting this, but the doc says the good thing is that I'm still on my feet, so it could be a lot worse! :-)
Unfortunately, when I rang the hospital about my diverticular disease and polyp consultation to see what they thought would be best given the situation, they decided to move my appointment. I was supposed to see them this week, but am now not seeing them until 18th January. *sigh*
Pneumonia trumps Polyps!
Hope your week is shaping up to be better than mine! :-)
