Flu Sux but….


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.


WEll, the flu laid me low during Thanksgiving.  I slept out the holiday and most of that week and the next medicated via doctor and medicated via me:  hot apple cider liberally doused with Samurai Saki.  Good for you.  Makes you sweat out the toxins and clears up chest congestion and gives you sweet sleep. I haven’t slept so much in 25 years (I usually sleep 2 – 4 1/2 hours a night).

So….this being said,  I haven’t had a chance to do much notifying, thanking, etc.  Please all of you who have started following me the past few weeks and visited, accept my thank yous.  I never cease to be amazed that I write something that touches you to like or comment. 

I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving (those of you who celebrate) and in the coming month of December, there are a lot of holy and secular observations going on.  Whatever you celebrate, I hope it will bring you joy, spiritual fulfillment, happiness, peace, and smiles.

Bless all of y’alls heart and in the next few days, I’ll be storming you all with stuff.  Again, Thank you.  🙂
