Today has been a pretty good day. I got up early so that DH & I could go take care of the granddaughters' dogs. Then I dropped him at home & went to the Y to teach 2 hours of swim lessons. When I left there I felt that I was going to cough up a lung for sure... picked DH back up & went to care for dogs again and then drove straight to the urgent care. Diagnosis: pneumonia. They gave me a breathing treatment & my lung capacity didn't improve at all after 20 minutes of treatment... sigh... the xrays looked rough according to 2 doctors so they sent them to a radiologist for more analysis. They gave me a steroid shot & an antibiotic shot. Prescribed antibiotics and a codeine based cough syrup. I was told to REST. Hmmm. I am going to do just that, believe it or not.
My food has actually been TOO low today. Less than 1000. I just don't feel like eating. My exercise was actually pretty high because of the workout at the Y, swimming.
I'm tired. Going to bed. I'll post more tomorrow. I hope that the medicine will help me to be able to sleep without having to sit up all night. When I lay down, I feel like I am drowning. UGH.
