It's official

My doctor is a smartaleck. I told him to NOT tell me that I had bronchitis or pneumonia. He said "Ok...you have bronchiopneumonia." Great. Just great. He was suprised that I had gone on with this since Wednesday and not had it go to full pneumonia - said I was very lucky b/c he had seen 4 people this morning with the same symptoms as me and they all had "whopping cases of pneumonia" and that I actually sounded worse than them with my cough. He said if I had waited until Thursday to come in that I would have been in some serious trouble with it - including possible hospitalization. So I'm home early from work, exhausted as all get out and having to take the granddaddy of antibiotics - 1 pill per day for 5 days, plus an inhaler for breathing easier - Advair and since I am highly allergic to any hydrocodones - including vicodin and codine I'm on a behind the counter OTC cough suppressant. Ok, going to crash now. Glad I'm off tonight. Going to take it easy.

Sorry to hear the diagnosis is like that, Nic.

Take it easy over the next few days. Hopefully it won't be as bad on Christmas Day, and you will be ok then.

Look after yourself, my friend.

Yes, DO take care of yourself and get healthy quickly. Pneumonia is nothing to fool around with!
