to be in a hospital bed and unable to do anything?
Had this horrible nagging cough since the last bout of radiation. Kept getting worse, so Sunday night saw us in the ER in Abilene. Seems I found me a nasty case of pneumonia. They’ve got me on high powered antibiotics and breathing treatments. Looks like I’ll probably be here at least another 2-5 days while they try to clear it up and run more tests.
It’s the pits to not be able to breathe. If I get up to move around the room, it almost brings me to my knees as my legs get weak and I’m fighting for oxygen.
Stacie came in Sunday night and is staying with the herd. Ernie is running back and forth between home and the hospital. And me, I’m just sucking on the oxygen, picking through bad hospital food, and praying for relief.
On a positive note….remember the chemo problem…well, the Dr’s office appealed their decision and the meds have been approved. Should have them tomorrow. Cannot start them till the current issues are cleared up, but at least, we’ll have them available as soon as I’m cleared to start taking them.
Time to lay back down.
