Thank you all so very much for the get well wishes. They are so uplifting. I am home now from the ER. My son took me Sunday afternoon and I came home Wed. evening. It was not pneumonia like they said at Immediate Care, but a lung infection. The hospital was overwhelmed with flu and pneumonia patients and I stayed in the ER for 24 hours before a room was available. Had lots of antibiotics and meds pumped into me and breathing tests done. I came home with the same cough I went in with and hope to be able to get rid of it soon. It is impacting my breathing but it will pass. My energy is so low I have to rest between walking from room to room but I can tell it is getting better. Last night was my first good nights sleep. No sleep in the hospital, I think that may be a written rule. It is part of patients rights! Just a heads up for anyone going to the ER - my hospital no longer gives out those little pacts of kleenex and lotion and tooth brush and tooth paste. Don't ask how I know this.

I am being well taken care of. My SIL and granddaughter have gotten me groceries and took trash out and mail in. Right now the windows are completely iced in and snow is expected all day so I am not going anywhere. Poor Molly has had a rough week too. My son took her home with him Sunday. They have two big dogs so she was kept busy but did not sleep at night. She paced and whined looking for me. She has been sleeping so hard since we got back home.

My goal this week is to participate in Darnell's new Twofer Challenge. I have been looking forward to it and now don't have the umpf to make the cards. I hope you all get a chance to join in. I missed you all so much and probably won't go back and try to catch up but I will be visiting as soon as I can. Be kind to one another and wear a paper mask if you go out. The flu is everywhere.

  9. Well, I sure hope you will be soon feeling great again. In the meantime, don't worry about visiting other blogs if you are not up to it. Just concentrate on resting and healing for now. You can always return to visiting in the future. And, I am sure you are missing making cards but we know that sometimes takes energy too. I know I have been there and found that out when I was recuperating.

  10. Hi Brenda, hope this finds you and Molly well rested and feeling a whole heap better, I don't tend to worry about visiting blogs when I have a severe pain day(s) I'm sure that no one minds at all, best to put your effort into getting well again... Not sure about our local hospital but one of my Aunts is involved with her local hospital and either Quota or some other organisation she is involved with make up toiletries bags for hospital patients which are handed out as needed... Have a lovely weekend... Megan

  12. Well a lung infection isn't any better than the pneumonia Brenda! But I am thankful they figured it out and I'm thankful that your son took you into the ER. My girlfriend had a bad lung infection in both her lungs too so I know what you are going through. I'm also thankful for your family in helping you around the house and with Molly. I'm sure she missed you terribly and is glad to be back home with you. We haven't gotten to much snow, just dusting's to 2 inches each snow storm. Not like us at all, but I will take it. Glad you are staying in when it snows. I hope you are able to make some cards soon my friend. Yes the flu is everywhere so you be careful and not catch it!!! Big hugs, Brenda
