So I was sick a couple of days last week, and the doctor said I could go back to work Friday, which I did, and felt OK. Then my fever started to spike again over the weekend, and had drag myself to work to finish payroll. I was really dragging, called my doctor for an appointment, got in at noon and was diagnosed with walking pneumonia.
So I missed our family get together yesterday, but the silver lining there was not watching my nordic family eat lutefisk. Plus the lack of eating junk. It was a bummer though not to be able to visit my mom in the nursing home on Christmas eve as I had wanted, since the doctor suggested that I stay away from seniors whose immune systems are weakened, which describes my place of employment, so I can't go back to work until next week.
"Santa" brought the family an XBox with kinect, and I sit here watching my 14yo getting good at the sports game. I tried the bowling, and was winded and needed a nap after 3 games.
I've drank lots of seven up, and mosty eat crackers - I just don't feel like eating anything. I know 7up is a no-no, but the only thing that seems to settle my stomach. So my Christmas dinner has consisted of crackers, rice, and 7up. And I still try to get my water in.
I suppose it could be worse. I could have the full blown pneumonia that I had about 12 years ago and spent 3 days in the hospital. So I just hope this latest batch of "strong" antibiotics will break it all up,
Hope everyone else had a merry Christmas.
