How Do I feel?

Well, it has been three very long weeks since I was diagnosed with Pneumonia. No, not walking Pneumonia, the real thing. The same thing Eminem (AKA Marshall Mathers) spent time in the hospital for over the New Year's holiday for with complications and he is younger than me. I had two chest x-rays, spent some "quality" time in a suburban emergency room, took 10 days worth "fast acting" antibiotics and was prescribed Oxicodone, Motrin and Codeine and had chest pain that felt like I was having heart attack. I wouldn't wish this on anyone.

I am definitely feeling a whole heck of a lot better. I still get winded going up and down the stairs and feel "something" in my chest, call it a bit of pain. I am also still a bit congested and have a bad cough but, I am slowly getting back to that thing people call routine.

The Princess and Miss Sunshine have really, really, really been trying to help out and not destroy the house. They have both been enjoying cuddling with me for laying in bed during the day for "nap times" so to speak as well (Mom lays down they watch TV or read in bed).

Now I can get back to some knitting, maybe, since I am so behind on my list. Add more babies to the list who will be getting hats instead of sweaters due to lack of time or energy. They will just have to deal and love what they get.

Glad to read that you are getting better, and that you're having time to adequately rest. This has taken a long time to pass for you!

It's good to hear that you are beginning to feel better. But don't push yourself too hard. Be sure to take care of yourself until you are 100% again.

I'm glad you're starting to feel better. That's a tough one to get over. And it's sweet that the girls are trying to help out. :-)
