So about a week and a half ago I was feeling like I was catching a cold - not happy about that ! After 3 days of doing what I always do when I catch a cold I was NOT feeling well. So a quick trip to the doc and holy crap .. I have walking pneumonia In addition to that COPD is rearing its ugly head. So I'm on antibiotics, steroids and nebulizer and inhaler treatments. I am feeling a bit better now, and DH says I have color in my face again, but I'm pretty much P.O.'d that I am so friggin' tired and weak. I am NOT a good patient but this is really kicking my rear. Guess I'm lucky DH is still here and has a tough skin. I really need to just calm down, relax and go with the flow but it's so not me to just sit around

Well, I don't know if this is petty or major, but I'm irritated that my blood count is low again, for no apparent reason, so I have to go to the hospital for a transfusion. Sucks. On the bright side, I'll take my tablet and extension cord so I'll have plenty to read and watch. So I won't be cooking tonight See you later. I have to pack.

Bummer. Be sure to ask the doctor if there is anything you can do to prevent this. (((Hugs)))

Good thinking about the tablet and extension cord. Will you be able to get online?

I'm going to have to transplant some chives and parsley. The compressor of the ductless a/c I'm having installed has to go where my composter is, so it has to be moved. I knew that was likely, so I have been trying to figure out where it should go. I will move three or four feet further from the house. I want it near the water faucet for rinsing the bin I use to collect vegi scraps and used coffee grounds and tea bags. I am not looking forward to moving that composter.

Thanks. It's a long and complicated story, but there probably isn't anything that can be done. A med I have to take to prevent incapacitating headaches damages my small intestine, plus there are complications from another condition, etc. One of those things that can't be helped. Yes, I can get online. The hospital has a free wireless network for anyone to use. Time to go, DH is here to drive me over

I had been rushed to the hospital and was just there overnight for observation. Or so they told me. Said I could go home the next day. I was adamant about making them keep their word. The doctor wanted me to stay longer than the regular checkout time so I could receive a pint of blood. Nope. I am going home! The next day I found myself back in the ambulance and had to stay overnight again so that I could receive TWO pints of blood. Lesson learned.

Wow, nasty! (((hugs))) Glad they figured out what you have and you get back to normal - or what passes for normal in your own little world! (Normal here is half-crazy anyway ) This is nature's way of telling you to relax! Trashy novel or chick-flick time for you.

Good Lord GG! I'd put this one in the major vents thread, so you're a real trooper. Hang in there! I'm sure you'll be back in the kitchen cooking before...the doctor things you should.
