When a cold turns into something more.

Boy have I sure missed all of you guys! As you know I came down with this terrible "cold" last week and it quickly progressed into something more. By Thursday my legs were hurting me, just out of the blue - for no reason. I spent alot of time laying down ALL week, when I was up I wanted to rip my head off from the sinus pain and pressure. Friday I got myself into the Dr. Chest xrays were taken, blood work was taken, come to find out I had walking pneumonia! He sent me home with antibiotics and a TEN day bed rest order. Luckily Jas has a few sick days to use up so I could actually get the bed rest. I spent the weekend on the couch, I think I got up maybe 6 times in 3 days. By Sunday night my face was so swollen I was actually scared. I wasn't sure if it was a reaction to the meds or if something else was going on. Back to the Dr's yesterday afternoon. I have a severe sinus infection which is causing the swelling and green mucous - YUK!

Every time I sat up the pressure/pain was so bad I wanted to throw up! Hes got me on a different antibiotic and this cough syrup that pretty much knocks ya out when ya take it.

As of now I had to stop my Christmas decorating, I just don't have the energy to do it. I also have a swap that was supposed to be mailed out yesterday that I couldn't get to. I just don't have it in me at this point! Its takes ALL I have to get to the bathroom and back with a quick stop here to say hi and in case I don't get back before Thanksgiving - Have a Happy Thanksgiving my friends!!
