    Whew !
    Pneumonia is no fun eiher especially if you
    have never had it. I used to get it about every 2-3 years but that has
    gotten better since I started getting pheumonia vaccines.

    Take good care of yourself and get plenty of rest.
    I hope you feel better soon, Denise.

    Try not to worry (easier said than done I know).

    Hugs,

    Jim

    Not the cancer...
    Hi Denise,
    So glad it wasn't anything to do with your cancer...not to say having pneumonia isn't serious, but at least it can be delt with and then go away. I also get the shot every year and so far..(knock on wood), I've never gotten it. I spent 3 days in the hospital about 5 years ago with a terrible bronchial infection, but never had it go into pneumonia. I've been gone for 3 days to my Aunts house out of state, so I fell behind in posting. I was wondering how everything was going with you. You be sure to rest and drink lots of fluids.
    Take care and I hope you start feeling better soon...much love...Sue (FNHL-2-3A-6/10)

    Hi Denise
    Hi Denise,
    Wow, that's all I can say right now from reading your posts. I'm praying for you and your son that he doesn't do anything rash again and that you don't get worse. All the stress that your going through man, I wouldn't know if I could be as strong as you. Please stay strong and have faith in God that everything will turn out right. Huge hug to you sweetie...

    Sincerely,

    Liz

    Hi Denise,
    I'm really sorry to hear about your son, all you can do is love him and pray, but you have to take care of yourself for you and your other (child?)children. He is making his own decisions and choosing his way as painful as it is. Heroin is an evil demon and when someone is in it's grip it doesn't matter who you are or where you come from. I pray that he realizes soon it's beyond his control and he gets the help he needs. Have you thought about a support group for yourself? You need all the help you can get right now, and of course you can always come here, but this is something a professional should be helping you with. I will pray for you and Robert.
