Starting to feel human again

Thursday, May 27, 2010

Hello everyone! Thanks for the well wishes & all of the goodies to make me feel better (soup, tea, oranges etc etc). You gals are awesome friends. emoticon emoticon

I am finally starting to feel alive again. I was so sick that I finally went to the doctor. (I NEVER go to the doctor, but I had to give in this time.) The doctor thinks I have pneumonia. He wanted to send me to the hospital to do a chest x-ray & a breathing test, but I talked him into just giving me antibiotics & a cough medicine (with codeine). If I'm not feeling better by tomorrow, I have to to the chest xray though.

I'm not allowed to exercise until my lungs are 100% clear, so that will be at least a week. I might have to sneak in some crunches so I don't look TOO hideous in Florida... we are leaving on June 14.

Matt & Macy have been busy with softball games lately. emoticon Matt played shortstop last night & did really well. He usually plays 1st or 3rd base, so he was excited to try something different. Macy is the catcher on her team & she is emoticon! That's a great thing about adopted children.... they don't get my non-athletic genes!! LOL (poor Hailey, I think is even less athletic than me!! LOL)

Hailey is at an Iowa Cubs game today for a field trip. I don't like it when my kids are out of town... it makes me nervous having them ride in school buses. Des Moines is less than 2 hours away, so I guess I shouldn't worry TOO much.. I hope she is having fun & puts on her sunscreen.

Well, thanks for listening to me ramble. I should be sparkier now & will be a better Spark Friend now that I'm on the computer again. (although I may be a little silly since I'm on the codeine. emoticon)

    Thrilled you are feeling better...but you probably should go get the chest x-rayed. Pnuemonia is not something to mess with. I had it three years ago and again this last spring. It really floors you! emoticon Lots of fluid and listen to your body. emoticon

    I am so glad you are starting to feel human again. I hope you do go and get the xray tomorrow if you are not feeling better. Don't over do it with the crunches. I am sure you will look GREAT!! I am sure Hailey is safe and is having a great time. As for the sunblock who knows if she will remember that. Kenny never remembers, but Abby does. I am glad that Matt & Macy have been having fun with Softball. I missed your rambling and am glad you are going to be around more. Even if you are silly from the codeine. emoticon
