Still fighting the flu and pleurisy crud. Yesterday afternoon I started having sharp burning pain in my lungs and became really dizzy, I took an oxy and went to lie down until the oxy kicked it then I would get back up. That plan failed because I ended up falling asleep. Tuesday I was prescribed 15 oxy and I still have 10 left. I only use them when I have really bad pain the rest of the time I am taking ibuprofen. I am feeling stronger than I have been so there is a positive thing going for me.
I was in an out of the house this evening to watch the super wolf blood moon. It was so beautiful to watch. I could not get a good picture of it with my iPhone. I was able to view it on my front porch which was nice. It gave me a break from being cooped up in the house. I went to the store yesterday to get refills on a couple of meds and I also needed to get things to eat that are gentle on the stomach. Total mistake to go out my lungs started the burning pain and I was having a hard time breathing. My son was with me, he would have done the shopping but I had to be present to get my prescriptions.
I was hoping I would be better by now I have not been present at pulmonary rehab all month. I was hoping to be there tomorrow, maybe I will be able to make it on Thursday. I have been doing 20 minutes of yoga for about a week now. I had to do some form of activity because my muscles were so stiff.
My son Bryce has taken off 2 weeks of work so far to take care of me mostly to keep me hydrated because I am sleeping so much. He is still going to take time off. He said he has 6 weeks of PTO. Well 4 weeks now. He told his boss well as long as we allow people to stay at work while they are sick this is what happens. He worded it different just not remembering word for word. He told them my immune system is crap and when I do get sick it hits me hard. My son is the manager there so him missing so much time is not good for the company. I caught the sinus infection also from my youngest son and that dragged for months.
Now I am just writing a novel, I am just so extremely bored being cooped up when the boys are asleep.
