phlegmatically yours

Today is the big day for my x-ray. Of course, the hope is that the gray, cotton-candy looking substance, which unceremoniously invaded my lungs, has taken it's leave of me. Honestly, without going into too much detail, I really haven't been as "productive" as I think I should in getting rid of this gunk. I don't really know what is next, though. I took a strong three day antibiotic that stays in my system for ten days---I am only on my sixth day, so I suppose I should try to be patient for the remaining 4 days. It is just hard knowing that there is a foreign invader in my body. In the past I have taken kindly to foreign invaders...I ended up marrying the last one I came in contact with. Of course Edgard doesn't make me all phlegmy so that could be why he is still around. This current invader is a little less pleasant. Although, having pneumonia garners me more sympathy than being married to Edgard does---so I guess that is sort of a bonus. Other than that I would have to say that having Edgard is better than having pneumonia.


  1. Pneumonia can be tricky. The best advice I know is rest, fluids---and patience. :)

  2. Thanks Linda... I am definitely getting plenty of rest and fluids...and the latter I am having to learn ;)

  3. I am so sorry that you are having to deal with Pneumonia! I had it once about 6 years ago. Once was enough, thanks! The upside is that you get a lot of uninterupted reading time, which is in short supply around my house.

    I hope you feel better soon.

  4. Very funny--- foreign invader.... You married him and made him a citizen. I wouldn't rec. doing the same with the pneomonia!!!

  5. Mrs. Smith...I definitely understand about the limited reading time...and I have just the two kids...I have to admit there was a part of me that was not sorry at all to get pneumonia!

    Michelle...yeah...don't think I want to go the "til death do you part" route with pneumonia!
