Well, time for a progress report...the germs I picked up from my grandson Nathan at Eastertime are working their way around. That's the way germs are...I finally went to the doctor after trying to get better with prayer, sheer will, rest and good food. He had an x-ray taken of my lungs, and found out that I have pneumonia in my left lung, so he started me on antibiotics. I don't take them very often but I know from prior experience that some illnesses that seem like colds can't be overcome without stronger medicines. I found that out years ago with a lingering sore throat that ended up being a strep throat.
So I am improving and feeling better each day. Thankful for Allen, who also got my cold but overcame it faster than I have, for his loving care, occasional cooking and picking up take out food. Sorry that my friends from Sweden also caught the same germs. Gittan is better but her husband Bo now has pneumonia and is following the same treatment I'm on. We certainly take our good health for granted. How many of us jump out of bed in the morning and exclaim joyfully "I'm not sick!" Probably more of us should do that....daily. I plan too, soon.
