Not Again!!!!!

I wrote in my first post of 2011 that I had been sick since
December 31st. I went to the doctor that day and got three shots
and three prescriptions.
Well, I got to feeling better....not great but better.
I really just thought that it was how I always seem down in January and
was trying not to seem like a big baby.

So......Saturday night around midnight I woke up with a terrible coughing spell.
I could not quit coughing. Eventually, I took a double dose of my prescription cough
medicine but it didn't faze it. I finally fell asleep and felt better when I woke up. This has been typical of me all month only I usually don't have that bad a coughing spell.

We got ready and went to church. I did okay. Coughed a little but John had gotten me a
glass of ice water from the church kitchen and I sipped that during the service.
After church we went with friends to eat. I still felt like my "normal" for the last month. When I began eating I realized that it was making me feel a little nauseous. In just a few minutes I
I could tell that I had started running a fever.

LONG story short....
I went to the Mitt Lary walk in clinic.
Love that place.

Well......I have pneumonia!
I got a couple of shots and four prescriptions.
I am home taking it easy today.

If you see me you might think.....
she doesn't look like she has pneumonia....
Well, I feel so much better than I have in three weeks.
Guess I should have gone back to the doctor quicker!
