The title says it all.
The pain I’ve been feeling in my lower ribs since I was diagnosed with the swine flu last week was getting to be too much to bear. What started as hurting when I took a deep breath, changed to hurting when I breathed at all. Last night it changed to just hurting…period.
A chest x-ray today showed pneumonia. Just three days after finishing my Tamiflu, I am once again medicated; this time with an antibiotic. I’m trying not to watch the news, read the paper or, for crying out loud, surf the internet.
So many of you have sent well wishes that I felt I should at least update you…and beg for more prayers.
My son was put on an anti-viral last week as a precaution, but that didn’t stop him from coming down with a sinus infection (which was likely a secondary bacterial infection following a mild flu…though we don’t know for sure). He has been on antibiotics since Saturday and is feeling much better.
My daughter has been fighting a sore throat and headache for about a week. She’s seeing her doctor in the morning.
My husband is totally fine. Lucky sucker.
I appreciate your concern and prayers. Thanks to everyone who is wishing me well.
