Oh yea, breathing

I didn't mention - my chest X-ray did show a little spot of what might be the beginnings of pneumonia. Seriously? So I'm getting antibiotics for that . . .and I have a cool breathing thing - some incentive breath-something-or-other. Blah. Cough! Thing is, my lungs already feel better. Sigh.

So - icing on the cake for my DH? we have no power at our house. Wind messed it up somehow, and there's about 4 houses in our neighborhood w/o power, including ours. Like we needed more stress!?!?!?!? Pray for DH - handling the household/simon/no power/me in hosp. He's taking the next 2 days off work, which is good for him. I'm encouraging him to spend some of this time just taking care of himself . He needs regular alone-time to stay sane.

3 Beautiful Things (and 2 bonus Things):
  1. A fun, relaxed nurse on duty, willing to laugh with me and bring me graham crackers . . . and who put my cranberry juice in an actual cup with ICE! instead of just bringing me those little cupthings with foil lids that always spill.
  2. The smiles of my DH and DS as they brought me my laptop so I can use my WIFI here!
  3. Cable TV in the room that allows me to watch Top Chef and Alton Brown's Good Eats.
  4. Dr. Cojones (not his real name) working extra time tomorrow to do my surgery as soon as possible.
  5. Knowing that I have lots of people praying for me/thinking of me/caring.
BTW - we have 3 tickets to see the Tannehill Weavers Friday night. I'm encouraging DH and DS to go, but they might have an extra seat - anyone else a fan? Yea, I'm a huge fan and am bumming to have to miss it. Blah.

I'll be thinking of you too. Awesome that you can pick out the beautiful things around you on days that aren't necessarily the best. xx

I think I had that breathing thing when I was in last summer. It does help.

Thinking about you and praying for you today.

Lovin' that you're staying positive.

Thoughts and prayers today and as you recover. I was always really happy with the care my dad got at Riverside. Great, caring staff there. We'll miss you at BOP! Tweet if you need anything. :)
