Trust me, you don't want any pix of this...
I have been so, so sick. It actually started on 12/28 but by the 1/1/09 I was pretty much non functioning. The next 4 days are a blur. I went from bed to couch to bed and that was about it. Finally, yesterday my mom took me to the local ER. You have to understand, I don't DO doctor's, ever. The last time I went to a doctor that wasn't adoption-physical related was about 12 yrs ago when I fell and sprained my foot so bad that the entire thing from toe to ankle, sole to top turned black from bruising --and that was after 3 days and because Bobby convinced me it must be broken. BTW, it wasn't, I would have been fine without the trip to the doctor, right? Before that it was when my kids were born, before that it was when I was 8. I always took my kids to the doctor when they needed to go but I just didn't need to go. I'd get sick then I'd get better. Not this time.

When I went to the ER I figured they'd say, "You're sick, rest, drink fluids." Ummm, no. "Pneumonia and a sinus infection" is what they said. Not nice. But, after a big bag of IV fluids and a littler bag of IV antibiotics, I feel almost like a human being! I'm looking at a computer screen and typing, those are two things I wasn't even remotely capable of doing yesterday.

On to better news, Georgie is turning 1 tomorrow!!!! Hopefully I'll feel able to go out tomorrow--I'm planning on it.

I'm so glad you went to doctor. Pneumonia is serious business. Hope you are feeling better soon. Last time Luke had it, he was so sick. You poor thing. Happy birthday G! I'm looking forward to meeting you (hint, hint. Call me when you're feeling human.

I hope you're better soon. Sounds like no fun at all! I'm glad those people around you have better sense and took you in to be fixed-up!

Happy Birthday to G!
