~PNEUMONIA & MY 1st BAD HAIR DAY~

MY 1st BAD HAIR DAY as I woke up this morning and took a quick glance in the mirror, I declared I was having my very 1st BAD HAIR DAY in which I smiled ever so happily!!!
If you look right above my ear, you will see that my hair is all tuffed upwards and it won't lay down unless I wash my hair again. OOOOO isn't that the COOLEST??? Sure makes me happy!!!!
On another note. Late Sunday evening I wasn't feeling so good and I thought I might be getting the strep throat that Maddi had last week. I have this 3 day rule as if you are still sick after 3 days, then we go to the doctors. Well, I was a bit scared because of having just come off of all those chemo treatments and just having surgery 2 weeks ago so we called the doctor.
They said I needed to come in immediately because being through all that I have been through it's not a good idea to wait. Well, guess what.....
I HAVE PNEUMONIA!!!!
I have been giving Azithromycin and if I am not better in 3 days I have to go back to the doctors and we will see about a different route in getting me better.
You have no idea how bad it hurts when I cough.....OH MY GOODNESS, from just having that surgery, I feel like my boobs are ripping open at all the incision areas. OWWIE!!!! So, needless to say, I am going back to bed and I won't be posting on the blog until after Christmas. I just need to get myself better.

I WISH YOU ALL A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS and We will see you on the 26th!!!
Hugs and Love, Amy

You poor girl! Pneumonia! I had it in February, just a "touch" and it was downright nasty. I can't begin to imagine the pain and exhaustion after all you have been through. Get some rest and enjoy xmas. I'm a lurker so I'll pop in once and a while to see how you are doing. I love the bad hair day - so good to see hair growing back!

Hi sweet Amy,
I hope you are resting & getting better & over that pneumonia. I just stopped by to say I hope you have a very Merry Christmas & I hope for you the best of the best in the New Year with wonderful things coming your way. Love & lots of hugs sent your way.

Judy said...

Hi Amy, I had to laugh when I read your post...I posted you would be complaining about bad hair days soon in your last post but I didn't think it would be so soon. LOL!!! If you have anything like the crud that is going around Denver it isn't good. My daughter was sick for a month with it and I know people who have developed pnemonia too. Take care my sweet friend. I hope you and your family have a perfect happy holiday. Love you lots and hugs to you and your family.
