Trying to Get Back to Normal

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

Went back to my doctor hoping I'd be over this cough by now, but disappointed to find I'm not well yet. I did go to Jazzercise , feeling great and enjoying every minute, but toward the end of the hour started coughing and continued all through my doctor's appointment, so had to go get a chest x-ray to see if I have pneumonia. The big surprise was when I got on the doctor's scale and found that according to his scale, I have lost two pounds since last Friday. I'll do my weekly weigh-in on my scale tomorrow morning and see what it says. Evidently the prednisone is not increasing my appetite as I was afraid it would. I'll be finished with it Saturday and hope I'll soon be back to normal.

    Hi Peggy,
    I will certainly pray again the pneumonia. I don't wish that on anyone after having it twice.
    May God give you strength and good health.
    Maybe lay low on certain exercises until you find out what the problem is. If it is a breathing problem exercise can trigger an asthmatic type of reaction.
    May you be back to your chipper self real soon.

    Doctors seem to like to see the scale go down, don't they? Get well soon.
