BACK TO URGENT CARE YESTERDAY

Sunday, March 17, 2013

First of all, I want to thank everyone for all of the responses on my last blog, messages on my page, and goodies. I wish I could respond to each of you, but I just can't right now.

I guess I waited too long to go to the doc. I rarely get sick, and this time when I did, thought I could handle it on my own.

On Friday I got meds, but by the end of Saturday, I got way worse and had to go get stronger stuff. Today I'm taking it easy and telling myself that I really am a lot sicker than I thought I was. Frankly, it hit my lungs pretty hard and since it didn't happen overnight, it's not going to clear overnight.

Those who've recently had pneumonia say that this bug is a particularly strong one and one spark friend's doc told her that the recup time is 6-8 weeks!!!! Yikes! I am not a good patient. I do not stay still very long. But now my body is forcing me to stay still.

Okay, folks, Happy St. Patrick's Day and have a fun day full of laughter.

    I hate to see you so sick. I can relate to how you feel though and am writing a blog about some things that might help you if I can ever get it finished. I was sooooooooooo sick and tried a lot of different things and some helped. Please get plenty of rest. emoticon

    Oh my gosh! Please rest, relax and be sure to drink your fluids! You must take your time to recoup because you'll get worse if you don't. Take your time recovering and don't rush the process. emoticon emoticon

    Oh my. Don't forget to take your supplements too. I hate being sick. I'm afraid to say this out loud, but so far this year no one in my house got that awful two flus that were going around. Rest and listen to that body. If this antibiotic doesn't make you feel better in 24 hours, then call the doctor.

    I've heard the same thing from friends who've had pneumonia this season. I'm so sorry you're going through this. You have my deepest sympathy, since I'm not a pleasant or patient patient either. I'm glad you got it checked out. emoticon

    Take care....I'm sending healing thoughts your way. My husband and I both got really sick with a similar thing in January. We sounded like we should have been in a TB ward. I went to the doctor because my asthma was making everything unbearable. One thing that helped in addition to the prescription medicine was taking Mucinex and drinking lots of fluids to help loosen things up in my lungs. I was really sick for about 3 weeks and it took several weeks after that to get my strength back. It's no fun....but it eventually gets better.
