Sneaking Outside

Well I snuck outside and did a little work in the Laundry/Propagation House just before I went into the Doc's. Mostly the girls worked and I directed, even that for an hour was exhausting.

And sure enough, I did not pass with flying colors. Pneumonia still in the right lower lobe of me lung. Oxygen levels are up but still not what they should be. One more week of antibiotics, some percussion that Dirt is supposed to perform on the lower right lobe, more Vicodin, more rest. Oh and some warm Castor Oil per suggestion backed up by past experience, thank you loyal blog friend you. Oh and more steam your face off treatments.

Kripes.

I am going looney. I really really need to work and my brain needs to stop working. But I will follow the doctor's orders and suggestions of my friends to not over do it, trust me I think I would pass out before I could actually over do anything. So be prepared for more tangents. Tomorrow I will show you some pictures of my new ceiling. I stare at it a lot, you should get to see it too.


Well that's all I got for you today Dear Reader. Spent most of the day in town at the doc and then doing a little bit more shopping with Dirt and the girls. Everything for a reason I am sure of it, so I will be content and find what it is I am supposed to be learning from all of this, its not like my country is being invaded and my children turned into slaves, I'm thinkin' I can handle this, hopefully with minimal whining.

Dang - I sure know how it goes - wish I could be there to make shadow puppet shows on the ceiling for you and tickle your toes?? well actually more like discuss deep and offish topics like does your chewing gum lose it's flavor on the bedpost overnight or will you still love me when I'm 64 (which isn't far off)
Keep on persevering - must have you back up and about in the new year - hackles to raise and pots to stir!!

I thought about you many times during the day Lanny. I'm sure sorry you are still sick. While you are looking at the ceiling, why not jot down a Christmas memory and blog about it or maybe join us for A-Z Monday's. Great way to stir up some treasured memories.

This too shall pass...really! Now how many times in the past have you wished longingly for a bit of rest? well here it is, forced upon you! Embrace it, go with it...breathe deeply, soon. Maybe you can have the girls paint an interesting and meaningful memo or mural on the ceiling.

Lanny, I am so sorry to hear this news. I'm sending up a prayer for you and wishing you well. Hugs to you from Daisy.

Sorry to hear the news Lanny. The important thing for now is to take care of yourself so you will be up and at it in no time.

Easier said than done, right?!?!

I'm the world's worse at resting and taking it easy.

Lanny: At least you should get through these problems by Christmas. These things seem to hang on longer as we get more mature. That was a nice way of saying getting older.

Oxygen levels...

I hve to worry about that all the time. I got one of those finger checkers and use it every day, and sometimes several times a day.

I hope not to get pneumonia. with my lung problems it might be more than I could handle.

Tipper said...

Sorry it wasn't totally gone : ( Hopefully you just need a few more days of rest to whoop it out.

Love the ice skating-especially Dad watching his girls-thats how it out to be-and I'm thankful it is that way at your place and at mine : )
