Well here's something fun. Pneumonia. What a treat. I have been way sick since last Thursday. Turns out it's pneumonia.
I started feeling heavy in my chest with congestion and just NOT good. I had to take care of a bunch of things (Valentine's, treats, a party at Head Start) and had a ton more to do (make more cookies and help with another party in 2nd grade, take kids to tumbling, coach basketball, play women's basketball, get my son to baseball....all kinds of stuff), but after I did the sweatiest Bunny Hop ever on record at Head Start, I came home and just crashed. And I do mean CRASHED. I've been down ever since.
I laid in my bed shivering and shaking under 5 blankets on Thursday and Friday as my fever raged on. My body ached terribly. I had a horrid headache and bad cough. Saturday I sweat it all out, had windows open, heat off, the works, and felt even more lousy. Pretty much the same scenario on Sunday.
I tried to feel better on Monday, I really did. I tried so hard to will myself better, but it just wasn't happening so I called my mommy and had her take me to the doctor.
I went to see Dr. Kent Smith and when he walked in I said, "Hey, I need you to approve my new weight loss plan. It's the "get real sick and don't eat for days" plan. Is that ok?" Apparently it wasn't because he made the nurse give me a breathing treatment and a shot in the butt (of which he said he wasn't fond of so he stepped out of the room while I got one....wimp!) and then loaded me up with antibiotics, breathing treatments and a nebulizer to take home. Thanks, Doc Smith!
So far I'm not feeling well yet, but I am breathing more easily. I've never been sick much in my life. But this hit me like a freight train, knocked the wind out of me (literally), and ran me under a few more times.
I'll be back to working out eventually, I'm sure. But for now, I'm going back to bed.
