Not Doing Much Walking

Thursday I finally went to the doctor, and was diagnosed with walking pneumonia, which I am re-naming "laying on the couch in sweatpants" pneumonia. I was sent home with over $100 worth of medicine, and I'm trying to follow orders, but everyone says this lasts a month or so. I am not a happy camper right now! Tomorrow, for the first time in the five years I've been the music director, I'm going to miss church due to sickness. Hopefully that will help me get over this sooner so we can go into Holy Week full speed ahead.

Oh dear, Joyce, that is not good! I'm glad you did go to the doctor; hopefully, those antibiotics will start kicking in soon. Lying on the couch in sweatpants is the best thing you can do for yourself right now.

I had pneumonia many years ago, and though it did take a while to fully recover, I think you might be able to get up and about a little before a month's time. At least I hope that's the case for you--you still have a couple weeks before Holy Week.

Take care of yourself, and I hope you're feeling better soon!

I know you're frustrated, but read a few books -- and post reviews so I can live vicariously! I can't seem to find time for anything on my list.

I hope you feel better soon!

On second thoughts, if you do review any more books than you already do, my list is likely to grow exponentially.... I find your choices to be very inspiring but my list my overwhelm me :)

Wow, it's a good thing you went to the doctor. My husband had that years ago and he still remembers how sick he was. Hope you recover soon!

Feel better soon! What a awful thing to get this time of year- just when it's beginning to warm up and there are thousands of things to do. C'est la vie! Take care of yourself and heal quickly.

Get well soon, of course! I suppose you can look at it like a little time for yourself, albeit probably not a fun time. Take is easy though because pushing yourself will just drag it out. I don't know about the walking part but I've had pneumonia and it was terrible. I was down almost all winter before they figured it out, just be glad they caught yours' so quick! I like Jaime's idea, read a few books. :)

Oy! Feel better soon, Joyce!!

Thanks, everybody. I do feel a bit better today, so I think the antibiotics are starting to take hold. Hated missing church, though. It felt so strange not to be there!
