This Too Shall Pass

     Since last Thursday, August 4, 2011 I've had bronchitis or that's how it started. By Saturday, I still wasn't feeling any better. Actually I was feeling worse. I continued taking my medicine like prescribed. This morning I called the Dr. office to get me a recheck appointment. I was able to get an 11:30am appt. with my Dr. whom I've seen since I was 3 years old. How comforting is that? My thoughts were confirmed: I have pnemonia!! I have never had pnemonia ever! At least this explained why I've been feeling so horribly bad. I've had no energy what so ever. Just completely drained. I have been coughing & coughing & then there is the wheezing. Dr. Gary changed my medicine & prescribed a few other things and said I should be better by the weekend. So I may be off work all week, just depending on how I feel.

 Having Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue on top of Pnemonia doesn't help matters at all as far as trying to recooperate. It just takes longer than the normal person to overcome. I keep telling myself it will get better, because I know it will!!

It doesn't help the week before last week I missed three days for having the pink eye! Now I'm missing work for bronchitis & pnemonia.

I have had helpful hands around the house bringing me lots of fluids, soup & really anything else I need. I also have had these little guys to keep me company:

Ollie is on the left & Newman is on the right.

They both sense I don't feel good. Especially Newman. All 46lbs. of him wants to lay in my lap! :) They are such a comfort when I'm not feeling well.
