Day 189, Loving Myself Healthy....

Saturday, March 09, 2013

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.

Sweet dreams....

    Well, now you know you are officially SICK. Have a leisurely Sunday with lots of rest; you don't need any reason to permit yourself to lounge around!

    I am happy to hear that you went for medical help, Dawn, & that you caught it before a hospital stay was needed.

Please, do rest - even when you start to feel some better - just try to make sure that you are completely healed before resuming your commitments.

God bless!

    Make sure you take care of yourself. Pneumonia is not something to mess around with.

I hope that you slept well and will have a good Sunday.
