UPDATE


Hi, 

Just a quickie to let you know I am still on the right side of the grass. Seems I have been dealing with pneumonia for the past 3 weeks. Boy will that take it  out of you.
I am feeling better but just need to get some strength back. I am weak as a newborn right now but slowly improving. Hope to be back in the swing of things in a week or so.
Yes, I had the first pneumonia shot, just hadn't gotten the second one. Hope you all are current with your shots.   Pneumonia is not a fun time.
I have missed you all and hope to be back soon.
Stay well and safe.

  1. That is a long time to be ill and I am glad you are still on the right side of the grass as you said. I had a pneumonia shot and a shingles shot, but hear you can still get them. Be well and gain in strength dear Patti.

  4. I didn't know there were shots for pneumonia, we get yearly flu shots here. Glad to hear you are improving at last, try not to rush things, you don't want a relapse.

  6. Happy to hear you're upright and maybe even ambulatory. At least you're probably up to date on every single darn thing on TV.
    Healing wishes.

  17. So glad you are feeling better. I had a 3 week stint just about the same time that you did ... not sure if it was flu, but no temp. so I didn't panic but I was sure weak as a kitten (like you.) I guess we old birds are too ornery to stay ill for long.

  18. Take it easy and pamper yourself for a while. My husband battled a bug for three weeks. The sickest I have ever seen him and it wasn't the flu. Hope you will be up and going strong again soon.

  22. Dear Patti, I've had pneumonia three times in the past five years. I did ultimately get that second shot that the ads talk about.

    But what I want to tell you is that pneumonia leaves you so exhausted--and it's not for just a few days. That acute tiredness can last several weeks.

    So please listen to your body and be gracious to yourself. Do only a little when you think you're cured and add a little each day. Don't swing right back into the thick of things. Peace.

  23. Hi Patti,
    Sorry you have been ill, but very pleased that you are getting better again. It will take quite a while to get back to full strength after Pneumonia, but you will get there I am sure! :-) All the very best from us in NZ Pxxx

  25. Patti!!! Pneumonia? Even after the tests you still ended up with pneumonia. Hope you are well on the way to recovery. Take care in every way. I can't tell you ho happy it made me to see a post here. Been thinking of you.

  26. Pneumonia is a tough cookie to deal with. Hang in there. I guess there is one good plus to old age..... I don't go out enough in the winter nor do I come in contact with people. Just me and the dogs. haha
    Hopefully summer will hurry up and splash sunshine all over these winter blahs.

  27. Oh, sweet Patti I am so sorry that you have been so ill. I sure hope you are a lot better and on your way to a full recovery. Leaving you hugs and some nose kisses for the fur babes from me and mine.

  29. Oh my goodnesss- you really got hit this winter! I hope you can recoup quickly- spring is here!! Time to get outdoors and sneeze and have runny eyes! The yellow pollen is already blowing out of the pines. Seriously, I am sorry you are feeling bad, and send well wishes and {hugs} your way.

  30. So glad to hear that you're on the mend. And I've never had the pneumonia vaccine, but do get the flu shot each year. Doctor told me to be sure to stay away from people with an upper respiratory infection... said, 'sure... but I do have grandchildren.'

  31. I'm glad you're feeling somewhat better!

    I don't know if it's pneumonia I have or what it is, all I know is I'm feeling very sick and have felt like this for about a week now.
