Pneumonia is the pits. Truly. I am posting this from my bed. My MD wanted to put me in hospital and I said, no way. Not in that germy place with all those sick people.
I am doing so well at home, I am bored. But truly, I keep track of my blood pressure, temperature, take oxymeter readings several times a day. I am taking my meds, drinking plenty of fluids, getting rid of fluids, I use my home nebulizer for three daily breathing treatments….I don’t have a roommate with noisy relatives watching TV shows I don’t like, I don’t have people constantly going in and out of the room at all hours, people passing by in the hall at all hours, I have tasty, nourishing food, SamCat checks on me frequently, my husband leaves me alone and takes care of himself. I imagine folks in hospital would be envious. And I am saving a TON of money.
I email my MD vital readings daily. I take out my stethoscope and listen to my heart and lung sounds and report that. I imagine she will get tired of that soon. I don’t recommend this for everyone mind you. But as for me, this is working out just fine. I’ll get back to posting more regularly in a bit.
You all take care of yourselves, wash your hands, cover your mouths when you sneeze or cough, and be safe in bad weather.
