Temporarily disabled

Shots of nyquil twice a day...

bedrest.... Lotsa loungin...

Keepin away the fever w/ rubbing alcohol, tepid baths.

Im pumping the fluids....

and hopin for the best!
As some of you know, Ive been really sick for the past month or more. Hoping and praying that because I was told it was viral, time was of the essence, meds wouldnt help, I would have to wait this out... Until my husband threatened me with calling an ambulance the next time I took a 6 hour nap! So I bundled up on Saturday evening and off to the local Walk-in medical clinic in the next town...I had a chest x-ray, a breathing treatment which helped, but gave me the old jitters like I was withdrawling from sumpthin ferotious back in the day...was given an I.V. bag of anti-biotic and something from the dehydration, given the diagnosis of having Acute Bronchial Pnemonia and home I went w/ zithromax anti biotic, prednisone, an inhaler, and a script for cough syrup which Im holding off filling, since Im hoping Ill begin to feel better with everything else.
I havent forgotten anyone, I will take part in the name game and games of tag when Im feeling better. In the mean time Im temporarily disabled. I have an appt. on Friday with my pulmonologist who was contacted while I was at the Walk-In facility. He called me yesterday (on Easter) & told me if I wasnt improved by Friday he wants to admit me. YIKES..... Thems fightin words!!!!we'll have none of that!!!!! Im a horrible patient.... No really...H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E
So I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Celebration and I appreciate and thank you in advance for any and all prayers. Ive got to go slab some more Vicks Vapo rub on the bottom of my feet, I was told that would speed the healing process.....Id do just about anything at this point to feel better and avoid a stay at the "Annie Wilkes Inn"
