ok ok be smug

well, last night I didn't sleep so well. I kept thinking that my wheezing was someone talking to me and I would mentally respond. Then I had to ask them to stop mumbling. It was a very weird thing. Also, the wheezing became sound effects in dreams and I had been having.

Before trying to sleep we had an atrocious night around here. Attachment disorder is a nasty thing when it comes to a sick parent.

This morning after the kids went to school I got about 3.5 hours of really good sleep. but by the time I woke up I just couldn't get air into my lungs without an incredible amount of effort. I called the doctor and went in at 3.

Yup, you smug blog readers, Pnemonia it is. We debated rehospitalization, but concluded that I could return home after 2 shots and two prescriptions. One of them is supposed to make me EDGY and IRRITABLE. like not being able to breathe and living in this house with some of these kids isn't enough . ;-)

Fortunately, Jimmy and Tony and John are at a hockey game tonight and without Jimmy and Tony here, the house is calm and peaceful. They are the instigators of issues and the two who have been least sympathetic to my plight.

So things are calm here now, but everything is exhausting. Every breath.... tiring. So i'm off to find something mindless to do. Not that this blog entry wasn't fairly mindless...

I started to get concerned when I tried to pull your blog up around 2:30 and there wasn't a new post. Please try and rest as hard as that may be...still praying!!!

Ugh! I have had pneumonia multiple times and know what you are talking about. Except that I was so foolish that I didn't know that I HAD pneumonia. My boss finally sent me to urgent care because I was turning blue when I coughed at my desk. Here is something important that i learned. You feel really tired for a looooong time afterwards--like months. So remember to go easy on yourself even when you think you recovered.

You did what needed to be done, Claudia. Now you'll be getting better right along. (But take ALL of your antibiotics, even when you're feeling better!)
