Sick of being sick!!

Hello all. What a nice warm and breezy day. Now it's raining. Tomorrow it's supposed to get very cold, continue to rain and be windy and I wonder why I am sick. These changes in temps don't help. Well guess my acute asthmatic bronchitis decided to get worse. I went to the doctor today for a follow up which I knew wasn't going to be too good because I haven't been feeling too much better the past few days. I've had the chills on and off, fever, and the coughing has been nothing but horrible. The doctor decided to send me for a chest x-ray and then told me to come back after the x-ray for her to read it. Well when I got back to the office I was told I have pneumonia. I wasn't happy to hear this at all. Anyways the Dr. told me that she didn't want to have to put me in the hospital on IV antibiotics so she wanted to first try me on a stronger antibiotic at home along with prednisone, a cough medicine Tussinex which has hydrocodone in it to help ease my coughing and then using my nebulizer machine 3 times a day. All that and a lot of rest and plenty of liquids. She said that I should feel some impovement within 4 days and that if I don't or I get any worse to call her right away. I sure hope all of this helps because I cannot stand feeling so bad.

I also had the appointment for the parent/teacher conference with Brittany's 1st grade teacher but I had to cancel it and I had left a message with her to set up a phone conference. Brittany's teacher is 8 months pregnant so I don't think she needed my germs. My mom helped me today too by going and picking up the kids from school and running to the store and picking up some things I needed from the supermarket. She was going to take the kids to their religion classes tonight too but I decided to keep the kids home instead. The haven't had any absences so I figured this would be easier for everyone. I talked with David's religion teacher and she said it wasn't a problem. I was also a little worried about my mom anyways because she had to go and have a biopsy this morning on her arms for two more possible malignant melanomas . Her doctor thought that one of them looked like it was ok and the other one he thought was highly suspicious. I hope she is going to be alright. She just had one of those removed just a month ago and now another one. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Other than that, yesterday, Kaylee and I worked on making her Indian necklace out of waxed string and beads and her Indian vest for her Thanksgiving pageant on Friday. They came out really cute. I just hope that I can go to the pageant. It's only a 25 minute show but I will feel so bad if I can't be there for her. Alan is going to go and so will my mom. So I will see on Friday how I am doing.

Well I am going to go and take a nebulizer treatment and hopefully just rest in bed the rest of the night watching TV. I want to see "Freddie", "CSI: NY" and "Lost". It's supposed to be an extended episode tonight.
