The Siege is Lifting

First, let me thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers. They have meant so much to me. I'll be visiting every one of you tonight (hopefully) or tomorrow (for sure)!

I believe the battle of the Boogies is almost over. Evan and Keegan are much better. Unfortunately, Dave seems to be under attack now. Poor guy. He works so hard with 12 hour shifts and now he is laid up coughing and sneezing. Me? Well, I am still dizzy and coughing but I can at least sit up and not fall over. Have any of you ever had pneumonia? Didn't you just HATE it??? I had to sleep sitting up because my lungs kept filling. Then, if I didn't cough for a few minutes, I actually caught a few zzz's. The most awful thing about it was the back of my neck. Because of coughing so much, my neck and head were just killing me. Also, when I blew my nose (every five seconds) my ears would pop and fill up so I couldn't hear, which accounts for my dizziness.

I'm sure thankful for you blogger friends. So kind. I'll be back to my old sarcastic self soon with more memories and stories for you. Thanks for sticking with me!

You poor thing!!! It sounds absolutely horrible. I'll keep praying for you all, and especially Dave.

Fred said...

Your just getting over it, and mine is just beginning. *sigh*

I sympathize. I had pneumonia once, it almost was a double pneumonia and one time I was near to one. I sprained one of my back muscles from coughing and it took me weeks to get my energy back.

I am so grateful you are doing better and I keep praying the recovery will continue at a quick pace.

God's Grace.

Boy, you mean I won't be able to call you a snot anymore??? I'm really glad that you're feeling better. I was getting worried.

Mine only turned out to be a weekend cold compounded by my perenially bad sinuses!

Welcome back to the world.

Tell Dave to take it easy and I'll pray for him!

Wow, I don't think I've even been that sick (knock on wood)!!! But I'm glad you are feeling better.

I am glad to hear you and the kids are finally feeling better. Now it is time for Dave to hear the prayers.

I'm glad you're better Mimi. I was wondering... since you've had pneumonia before, what does your doctor say about a pneumonia vaccination? Wouldn't that keep you from getting it again?

So happy you and the boys are feeling better - prayers to Dave -

M. C. Pearson said...

Gosh, thanks guys! I'm still working on visiting everyone. I had another rough nite last night with my cough. Thanks for all your prayers and I pray you will all be healthy too.

Fred~ sending you a thought of boogie-rag love. Sorry you are ill too!

M. C. Pearson said...

Oh, and Bonnie Wren...funny that you mention it! My sister-in-law just told me about the shot. Be sure that I will mention it to my doctor next time I see him!!!

Mimi,

I do hope you get better soon! I've had more than one bout of asthmatic bronchitis, and I'm sure that's nothing compared to pneumonia! I feel for you! Lung illnesses are the pits!!

Get well soon!
