ER Visit

I know, I've been outside for months, how can a body do all of that digging and end up in the ER this a.m.? Well, we Grahams are made of tuff stuff, hardy stock, if you will LOL. I've been working on what I thought was, at best, a bronchial infection, and at worst, a bit of pneumonia for about 3 weeks now, and have felt really yukky the last few days, in particular. And with Randy out of town, well, last night he extracted a promise from me that I would go to the ER this a.m. and get checked out. Sure enough, pneumonia in the left lung. So, I came home with lots of drugs, some new novels, have moved some plants that were sitting in the yard in pots to a more sheltered spot (cause it's going to be chilly tonight, and a freeze warning for tomorrow night---man, am I glad to have gotten some wood in last weekend :D ), made a fresh pot of coffee, and I'm heading to the couch. I really am disappointed that I can't take advantage of the rain that we had the other day to get the rest of my shrubs and plants in the ground, but specific orders from the ER doc was NOT to do any digging but to take it easy, sooooo.....what's a body to do but read, applique, watch TV, and sleep??? :) For the first time in a very long time, Blogger won't let me upload photos today. :( Guess it's just my turn, as I've read other people's blogs where they've had the same problem. Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

Hey, girl friend - you'd better follow those Doctor's orders - there is a nasty pneumonia virus going around and you need to take care of you. Here's hoping that you have a speedy recovery.

I hope you're feeling better, Angie! I had pneumonia last year - it's just not a good feeling, is it? I always thought gardening was supposed to be good for you!
Take care!! Curl up with the wieners!!
