Home From Doctor...

I'm home from the doctor...and I'll be home for quite a few days. While I was there we did a breathing treatment, which made me feel a little better - but not much. She sent me home with instructions to take my regular meds, do a breathing treatment twice a day, and a z-pac which is being filled at the pharmacy as we speak.

The culprit is a bit of pneumonia in my right lung...and we don't want it to get worse. Of course, we need to combine that with a sinus infection and bronchitis. Have to return to the doctor on Thursday to make sure it is clearing...and if I get worse - I'm supposed to call her.

No activities or leaving my home (preferably bed) at all until at least Monday with the one exception of the doctor's visit.

Later...

That is a good thing that you decided to go to the doctor before it got any worse. I sure hope you get some rest and be on the mend soon.

I'm glad that you are getting the treatment you need to feel better. A few days of rest never hurt anybody - cuddle up with Killian and enjoy it (well, as best you can enjoy having pneumonia).
Sending hugs your way!

Thank goodness you went to the doctor. Now...you need to get to know more people in that area so someone can keep an eye on you and HELP you if you get sick like this again. Try...okay???

Z-pac is good to kick out any of the bad stuff. I hopey ou take this chance to relax in your chair with you knitting and fur baby, and catch up on TV. it's too cold and snowy and nasty to be outside anyway. :)

You poor thing, If we lived closer I'd make you soup and something chocolate to cure what ails you. Take good care of yourself and keep us posted on how you're feeling - and listen to your doctor!!

Glad you went to the doctor when you did...when I had bronchitis and the Big P, I waited til I was really sick and it took months to recover. Rest, rest, rest, and when you don't feel like resting, rest some more anyway. Think of all the cuddle time you'll have with Killian!

On a more practical note, I'm free after 2 on Saturday. If you need a personal grocery shopper -cos it's easy to forget to eat when you've got pneumonia- or have anything else you need a hand with, email me.

I'm glad you went to the doc and are getting the meds you need. Hopefully, they'll work quickly. Take care of yourself, Sara.

I'm so glad that you went to the doctor. I hope the meds will kick in and kick out the infection.
