Pneumonia is awful.
I am so sick and every part of me seems to hurt. I will say, after having started on my antibiotics my chest doesn't hurt AS badly when I cough. I had the shakes and chills during the night Monday night. I considered going to the ER. Instead, I went to the doctor yesterday a.m.. My pulse was racing, I had a fever... this is rough. Vance met me there and watched after Hazel while I had the blood draw, x-rays, all that stuff. I am so thankful to my friend Kelly who took Willem and Hazel for the WHOLE day today! Time to get back on the couch.

We went to the dunes Sunday, this was right before the pneumonia set in. I couldn't figure out what was going on with my chest and I just felt off.
Rudy and the Chief, our dunes vehicle

These three have been soooo good while I am sick.
Willem and Merit have been incredibly helpful.
Hazel is at a BUSY age and this sick mom is having such a hard time running
after her which again makes me so thankful for Kelly's willingness to take
her today!

Oh, Chicken and Stars soup for dinner tonight.
And if Vance wants to add grilled cheese to the menu, he can.
I look like a lazy cook after reading Natasha's blog!
Check it out. Her recipes and pictures are amazing.

Time for a nap.

It isn't fair - mommies are NOT allowed to get sick. Hoping you feel more like yourself soon!

Oh I am so glad Kelly was able to take the kids for you! I am a lazy cook sometimes, last night I pulled some chicken patties and fries out the freezer and in about 20 minutes, WHALA dinner was ready. Tempted to do that all that time! Hope these antibiotics are really able to kick this and soon!

We had it all too this winter. Ugh! Hope you are feeling better!

So sorry you're feeling so crummy. I had pnemonia before and it's awful! Taking a deep breath is tough and hurts, almost like someone is sitting on your chest! Hoping the antibiotics are really kicking in and you're getting the rest you need.

Was in Reel Deals today and thought of you, the last time I was there was when we bumped into each other! Always inspiring to go home and add some special touches to the house :) Hope you feel better very soon!
