Back from the doctor

I tried to get into my regular doctor, but he didn't have an appointments available until this afternoon and I seriously felt like I was going to die before this afternoon, so I went to urgent care. The doctor listened to my lungs and didn't like how it sounded so they did a chest x-ray and the doctor thinks I've got the beginnings of pneumonia. He didn't think the chest x-ray looked terrible, but it was hazier in one area than it's supposed to be, so he's sending it to the x-ray people to check for sure, but he said the results don't really matter because he's treating it as pneumonia anyway.

So I got antibiotics and stronger asthma medication and hopefully I'll start feeling better soon. I honestly can't recall the last time I was this sick, and coming right when I should be packing for our trip and getting everything ready for Clarissa kind of stinks.

So I'm just going to take it easy today, attempt to breathe like a normal person and hopefully I'll be feeling better tomorrow.

I'm sorry to hear you're still not feeling well. Hopefully the antibiotics will kick in really fast and you'll feel better soon. Don't worry too much about getting everything done. What gets done, gets done. Try to rest up as much as you can and hope you're feeling better!

I'm so sorry that you are feeling so crummy! It is so frustrating to feel like there is so much to be done and no energy to do it! I was just out getting a gift for Clarissa and was getting so excited for you guys. I kept imagining her dark hair with an outfit, and I am seriously so anxious for you guys! I'm sorry I missed you the other night - we were out of town. I can't wait to see pictures and hear updates - she is so lucky to have you! Can you believe your little girl is coming home? I bet you already have her Halloween costume! Love you!
