I intended to write earlier but after dinner I went straight to bed. I told you last night I was feeling a little under the weather and as today went on, my symptoms got worse. Because this is my first "full fledged cough/cold" since the diagnosis, I wasn't sure what to expect from my body. After work I stopped by my family doc to have him listen to my lungs. He said he could start to hear crackling in my lungs (a sign that pneumonia could be right around the corner...) so he started me on an antibiotic right away. Even though I've been feeling great all these months, I know my respitory system is compromised so I need to take extra special care of myself. If nothing else, this cough is making me have a deep raspy voice so I sound a little sexy (which isn't always an asset if you answer the phone all day....at a high school...."Hello...this is Doreen....what can I do for you...?")
In case I've forgotten to mention it lately, I am very grateful for all the love and support I get from all of you each day. From my childhood friends and family, to my dear close friends, to my newest friends whom I've just met, you give me so much hope and courage I can't imagine sharing this journey with anyone else.
I don't like these serious blogs. With that being said, intend to get well soon so I can lighten up my writing. I think you all appreciate my warped sense of humor so I'll try to get it back.
Love you more... 'nuff said..
