Almost There

Monday, November 09, 2015

Wow..it's been a while, but I've spent the entire time in bed, I've been so sick.

Went to the Urgent Care the Saturday after my last post and they said "you have symptoms of every flu there is, maybe not all, but the majority of them. We're not sure what you have, but it's a virus."

Really? They didn't give me anything, said it should be better in 7-10 days. Last Wednesday I finally went to the ER; I had have constant temps of 104+, barely eating at all, sleeping constantly, everything hurt, I was weak, and then the coughing started in, and I couldn't sleep. The ER told me I had pneumonia, so they gave me meds for the coughing and for the Pneumonia, and I've been in bed ever since. This is one of my rare times off, but to tell the WI team where I'd been.

Thank you, everyone, for your kind words, it meant so much to me. I'm truly blessed with your friendship and kindness, and it means a lot.

I'm working on getting better, if I could get rid of that cough, I'd be almost normal...I'm never normal.

I got upset today at my Husband because he was complaining about putting the Halloween Decorations away (he complains about all the deorations), and I went out, took all the Thanksgiving decorations down inside and out. I guess this has me over-emotional, too. And I told my husband and son, if they wanted no more decorations, sell, burn, give them away; I was sick of no one appreciating my decorating.

My son snuck out (after my husband left to go hunting); and put the Thanksgiving decorations up, and told me he did like my decorating. I wanted to cry..it made me feel so good. I gave him a big hug and thanked him. I love my kids so much, no matter how old they've gotten, they are still our little kids, and I thank God for them both. I'm sure our daughter would have done the same thing, had she been living at home still.

Have a wonderful day, and please share a smile..and give yourself a hug, pretend it's from me. emoticon emoticon

    they say the only difference between pneumonia and walking pneumonia is that the person with walking pneumonia is just to stubborn to lay down...... =) hopefully you will take heed and get some rest..... i'm glad your son showed his appreciation for the time and energy you use to make the house a home!

    Ah emotions run high when you're so sick. I was thinking that if you skipped a holiday and didn't decorate I'd bet even your husband would miss it. Hugs and hope you heal quickly. Echinacea is wonderful for coughs if you're able to take it. Rest up!

    awwwww, definitely a proud Mama moment. That was so sweet.

    I am SO glad you went back and got diagnosed. Lord! I can't believe the first diagnoses was "you have a virus, not sure what it is but it'll be better in 7-10 days". Anyhow very glad you're on the path to healing again.

    HUGS sweet one, and take care of yourself.
