  1. Hello all.

    I'm gonna beat you to the punch here in saying good morning.

    I am on the night shift working with one of my least favorite people, but life goes on. Have a great day!

    My friend Cam is coming into town and I get to meet his partner for the first time. He moved to Toronto be be with this one so I need to do my "sisterly duty" and assess to see if James is worthy. We'll see.

    good morning

    had to go to the ed with asthma attack last night. my next door neighbor took me. just came on so suddenly, but not unexpected. yesterday morning waking up, i felt better, but as the day progressed, my cough was worse and worse. had a horrible h/a that i could not abate with tylenol/aleve. slept most of the day and when i'd get up and try to come online here, just felt so bad.

    anyway, last night i went to bed at 8 p.m. and within 20 minutes i was wheezing. found the inhaler and tried that but could tell this one was not going to improve. called my neighbor and off we went. got home around 4 so will be sleeping off and on today. just doesn't feel good to sleep lying down and am up now.

    oh, if you are wondering why my dh didn't take me, he left yesterday morning for illinois. will not be back until next year. he isn't even aware of what happened last night either. dread telling him.

    just wanted to let you know and appreciate your concerns. i'll be back later maybe. right now, taking my meds and trying to get the fever down once again.

    love ya. ....never empty cuppa for ya'll. hope you all

    Morning all!!!!!

    Awwww...Siri...I so hope you get better soon. Don't scare me like that's the time to get better. I hope you can get some restful sleep.

    Netters--great news from yesterday's thread.

    Still adjusting to being minus one kitty. So many reminders here and there. Even last night at work, I had to punch in my ID as 5CATS.

    Off today, work tomorrow. Got up way too early so I believe a nice nap will be in store later.

    Good Morning Family !

    All is well here. Already bored and wanting to go back to work.

    Siri... how AWFUL and scary for you ! My goodness, will you NEVER get WELL? I thought you were getting BETTER! ???
    And you're still running a fever? Hasn't this dragged on long enough? Are you sure there's nothing else going on? Fevers don't usually last for weeks, yanno. :stone
    I'm sooooooooooooo sorry you're still feeling poorly. Have you anyone there with you at all? Any family member to see to your needs while you sleep and rest?

    Well, for those who are off today.. enjoy ! And those who must work, I hope your day/noc is a smooth and uneventful one.

    Not much going on here. Will put away the Christmas decos in the kitchen today, and the outside decos as well. Tomorrow I'll put away the living room decos, all but the tree. Will do that Monday and save it for last.

    Time for more coffee.... BBL !

    Good morning all. Kinda tired this AM. Kept watching CNN last evening to see how "things" went.

    I hope that all of you who are working have a peaceful day. (And all of you that aren't, as well, of course.)

    Adrien- thanks for starting us this morning. Do your assessment well, now. Only the best for friends, right? You sound like a wonderful caring friend.

    Tweety- have a great day off. What are ya gonna do today? Would be a lovely day to walk about the beach. Maybe pick up some shells? Sounds nice to me. Hummmm....maybe I'll grab the kids and do that myself, later.

    Mary Ann- I'm sorry you've started that cold. Tis the season. I'm still swearing by ColdMD and Zicam. 'Course there's always Mom's chicken soup, too. Get better quick, K?

    Siri- you did not have a good night! What are we going to do with you? Do you have a recliner? I like mine when I'm not breathing well so my head is up but I'm reclined enough to make it almost like bed. With a cosy comforter to cuddle into...some hot tea (sorry, I meant coffee) beside me...a good book at hand and the remote near by just in case. And Puffs Plus. Can't forget that necessity. But never forget the laptop. Never, never and never. I'm thinking about ya and praying for you.

    Netters- I don't believe I congratulated you on your excellent report. Prayers work. And it all worked out in the end. *whoops* Some things ya just can't hold back.

    Suzy- I understand. (((((((hugs)))))))

    Have a God blessed day to all.

    Thanks, suzyQ and jnette.

    I was getting better, jnette. Things just started going south yesterday. I had been free of fever for over 12 hours. I had the flu coupled with a sinus infection.

    Well, I think I aspirated (at least that's what they said last night) the night before and X-ray showed RUL, which is consistent with aspiration pneumonia. Anyhoo, I should get better now. If I am not vastly improved by tomorrow, or worse today, I have to be admitted. So.....

    And, no, I don't have family here. They cannot come as planned. We had postponed everything until the tomorrow, but that's off now. Dh will be back on Tuesday.

    I'll be o.k. Just comes a bad time.

    Had another cuppa and took my meds. Think I'll lie down later and take a nap. Remarkably, I'm not all that sleepy right now. Suppose it's all the meds I had in the ED. Feel like a pin cushion and just generally cranky, but not sleepy.
