Down - but not out
Thursday, December 04, 2014
Well, my friends, the rotten head cold was not going away, so I went to the doctor this afternoon. Turns out I have pneumonia! She threatened to call an ambulance and send me to the hospital if I wouldn't promise to stay home from work for the next 2 days! I agreed to her terms and came home. Stopped to pick up the medicines - expensive and a few groceries! My sense of taste is pretty limited right now, so food isn't really an issue. I am forbidden to do any exercise and was told to be really lazy and get lots of sleep. She told me if I'm awake, I should be reading or watching TV, nothing more for right now.
So - my participation in the Teddy Bear interim challenge is on the down-low for right now. I even left my FitBit plugged into my computer at work to charge! I may go into the office briefly on Friday afternoon to collect it and do a few things, but that depends on how I feel. I have to go back to the doctors Friday morning so they can check how I'm doing and I'll decide how things will go after that.
This is so disappointing. I have lots I need to be doing - Christmas cards and shopping. I HATE being home bound when we're getting nice weather and there's so much I could accomplish with time off from work - but I need to focus on getting well and have to let that other stuff go. Boo-Hiss! I do have everything I need to make some of my great chili I invented, with ground turkey and lentils and barley and beans and diced fire roasted tomatoes. Hopefully I'll be able to taste food again tomorrow.
I hope everyone is doing well (almost surely better than me at the moment) and taking good care.
