The tests proved I was battling something, but it wasn't until I coughed up blood yesterday afternoon that we got a definitive result. Another trip into Urgent Care, another chest xray, and there it was, pneumonia. I have been blessed with good health, so I have little experience with episodes like this. I was scared. I had a bad night until I just got up and literally chilled my feverish body. I sat by the open window at my computer. I sat outside in the moonlight. I worked on my body temp and my fear. Then I went back to bed and to sleep. I am OK. I started on antibiotics last night and now I just have to let them work. I am fortunate to be a lady of leisure in my retirement and I have a husband who takes very good care of me. I had to cancel plans to go to Oregon to see my mother, but that can be rescheduled. I'll be staying home this week. I'll have time to post blogs, but probably not about politics for a while. That can be easily overdone. That doesn't mean I won't still be reading, watching and studying everything that happens in the campaigns this week. The outcome is very important to me. But for now, I will go back to reading the paper and watching some football. Go SEAHAWKS, please!
