Over Thanksgiving, I overdid, was very lax about hugging and holding hands, and am paying for it now. Developed a little virus: mild sore throat and runny nose. After a week, I began coughing and wanting to sleep all of the time and headed to my PCP. He did an xray and came back shaking his head. He said he thought some of what he was seeing was chronic, but did I usually have atelectasis (collapse) of left lung. Ding, ding, ding. Answer is NO! Diagnosis: pneumonia and I have been on antibiotics for 5 days now. Still coughing but beginning to see the light.
Bella (granddaughter) told Katherine that I have ammonia and Danny needs to let me stay in bed and fix me breakfast and dinner (I guess I am on my own for lunch) because that's what you do for ammonia.
I couldn't love that little girl more if she were my flesh and blood. She is a true joy and makes me laugh every time I see her.
Now I have to get better, so I can watch her at Disney!
