Still Recovering from my pneumonia

I've been laying low. Resting, BREATHING, and taking tons of medicines. I'm in that point of my recovery that I'm starting to finish some of the prescriptions. Tomorrow morning I'll take the last doses of antibiotic and decongestant, then it will only be the inhalers and the steroids. I'm tapering off the steroids too & go down to just 10mg tomorrow.

We've been eating a LOT of take out and other than a few loads of wash I don't feel like I've gotten anything productive done in the house since coming home from the hospital. I'm planning to cook dinner tonight & I really need to run the vaccuum....just wish standing didn't make me short of breath in 20 seconds flat. Being sick is not easy for me, I keep expecting to just get my energy back & be FINE....double pneumonia is serious stuff.

Step AWAY from the vacuum lady!!! There are SEVERAL able bodied people to take care of all of that for you! I will come and kick their butts if they do not.
LIE DOWN AND GET BETTER! Hope your energy returns soon.

You poor thing! No, you definitely do not need to be cleaning the house. You need to rest, rest, rest! You'll never get over it if you run yourself ragged while trying to recover.
