Wilted flower

I have a vase of wilted flowers on my dining room table right now. If I had more energy, I would take a picture and show them to you. Because, this is the only description of me right now.

I started coughing (again) on Saturday. I went to the doctor on Monday and I have either: bronchitis or pneumonia. They weren't ready to hang their hat on either. I got 2 shots in my hip - and was thrilled when I remembered I was wearing my panties that say "Monday" across the waist ban (I won't go into how I got these). Yeah, how adult did that look? Anyway...

Tuesday I went into work about 11am. Dr. B went to Canada for the rest of the week, so I am running the clinic. That night I went to a CE (local veterinary association meeting) that I didn't get home from until 9:45pm. And, I drank PLENTY of tea from Jim and Nick's, that was FULL of caffeine, and consequently lay awake in the bed most of the night. Set me up well for the rest of the week.

Wednesday I spent half the morning in the bathroom from the antibiotics my doctor prescribed. Not getting home last night until 8pm, I went to bed shortly afterwards. I did get a new prescription, though.

Worked all day today. I felt worse today than yesterday. Great.

The good news is that I have to work tomorrow, and then I get the weekend off!

The hardest part, other than working sick as a dog (haha - I know), is that I miss my kids! They spent the last part of last week visiting GranGran and PawPaw, got home Sunday, and I have either worked or been in the bed sick since. I don't think I will get much quality time this weekend, because I hope to be in the bed getting better from whatever I have.

And, I go back to the doctor next Tues for more x-rays... And, I imagine the plot will further thicken...

Kristi!! You have much sympathy from me...BELIEVE ME! I had pnuemonia this last spring and that is horrible enough in itself, but just the fact that you don't really get any down time as a mom to rest and get better!! So, I am praying you get that. I know Scott is so great and will help you out. I will be thinking about you this week and hoping you recover quickly. My word, what a crazy summer to be getting all this sickness!!! Maybe you will fly through the winter months un-touched!

I had some sinus issues a couple of weeks ago, and it traveled down to my chest and I am STILL coughing. But it sounds like you're having a MUCH harder time than me, so I hope you feel better soon!!

Bless your heart, girl! It's no fun being sick, but it's much worse if you have to work!! I will pray for you tonight that your body will shape up soon!!

I thought I would stop by to see how you are doing. I hope you are feeling better. Just wanted to let you know I was thinking about you.
Talk to you soon.

You are way tougher than me! If I felt as bad as you, I'd be such a whiner! Take care of yourself!
