Without going into a lot of detail, I just wanted to let everyone know that I spent a week in the hospital with Right Upper Lobe Pneumonia. Not a pleasant experience at all! I became ill on Thursday, Dec. 31 and was admitted to the hospital on January 3rd. I should have gone sooner but I did not realize just how sick I really was. I thought I had pulled a muscle or pinched a nerve. I will be going to my family Dr. for follow up care but do not know as yet when I will be able to go back to work again. I feel that the Lord has given me a 2nd chance and have now quit smoking. I had my last cigarette on Jan. 2nd in the morning and barely smoked it as it left me gasping for air. With my Dr.`s help, my family`s and friend`s and coworker`s support and encouragement I have no intentions of smoking anymore. I was amazed that I did not have a craving for nicotine while in the hospital but I was drinking a lot of water and juices which I`m sure flushed a lot of the nicotine out of my system.
I`ve been given a 2nd chance to change my life style and intend to live long enough to celebrate many more wedding anniversaries with Opa and to watch my 2 granddaughters grow into beautiful young women.
Thanks for stopping by!
