at home sick.

Pneumonia sucks.

I have watched 7 of 8 Harry Potter movies and just finished Moneyball. Coughing makes it hard to read or do crafts and I do not want to get germs (or phlem) on any of my board games.

I am bored to tears, however any attempts to do any activity longer than 10 minutes results in more coughing and general exhaustion. At least my temp is no longer 102, 4 days of that was enough.

Moneyball is awesome though, right? I really enjoyed that movie. Just relax as best you can and catch up on Netflix or something!

Been there, done that have the dead spleen sections to prove it. I am a little old to be getting mono though. It is confirmed pneumonia.

The first Dr. I saw thought I had flu or a sinus infection and gave me a mild antibiotic. After another 2 1/2 days with a 102 fever and having difficulty breathing, my husband took me to Emergency. The Dr. there said my lungs sounded clear but he did not like my breathing, oxygen levels, or cough so he ordered x-rays. As soon as he saw them he said I had pneumonia. I got some oxygen, some fluid, and new very strong antibiotics and now I am slowly getting better. At least I am not shaking, sore all over, and falling asleep all the time.

Yup, Moneyball was fantastic. So were the Potter movies, I had not seen any of them before. I don't have Netflix, but my mom brought me a bunch of movies along with chicken pho for supper. My mom is awesome!

Oof. That reminds me of the time my husband and I came down with mono. We lived on whatever could be cooked in the toaster oven with minimal prep (thankfully we had no kids at the time), and we sat around playing FreeCiv all day.

You have my sympathy.

When I had pneumonia I was physically sick with it. I spent the first week in bed, and for the first few days couldn't keep anything down, not even a glass of water - as soon as I started coughing again, back it came. So, if it helps, its sounds as though you are doing better with it than I was (but I had had a bout of flu a month earlier).

On the plus side, when I got back to work I was told that they had found out what I do all day. There was an impression that I kind of sat around all day fiddling with the computers, setting up and collecting backup tapes once a day, and taking few minutes from time to time to sort out the occasional problem. Actually, that was kind of true, as I was on top of the job, knew the system inside out, and have the sort of awareness to predict a lot of the requests that would be coming my way and have the solution lined up ready. However, while I was off the guy covering for me barely got to do any of his normal job for the best part of a month.
