First...........thank you Lou. Really.
OK, I could not find the New Post button this morning! I hope I am back to Blogger, even if it means short posts for awhile.
Friends........I don't know exactly what is wrong with me. I had pneumonia bad. I can not seem to bounce back though. I have not been to work in over 3 weeks and believe me that feels so so weird. I can now stay awake for about 3 hours at a time before crashing asleep. I can go without the oxygen for hours at a time now as well.
Yesterday I woke up from a sound sleep, knowing that I had to have chic-fillet. I got into the car in my pajamas (?) since the chic-fillet is about 1 mile from home and a drive thru. I have not driven since I got sick. How hard could it be? Oh good grief........you have to be so in tune with the "moment" to drive. Damn stop signs and other people on the road and turn signals and just lots of thinking. I almost made it there and back without incident. When I pulled back into the drive way, I somehow got the passenger side of the car stuck on the metal rain spout thing that comes down the side of the house. It put a DEEP scratch all the way down the passenger side of the car.
I have now put on 24 lbs. since all this started. I have been on huge amounts of steroids, plus no smoking for almost a month now and food seems to be the only thing that is "good". I eat huge jars of peanut butter at one sitting. I'm sort of tired of the neighbors telling me that I don't look like myself. My face has the "steroids" look also. What.....don't you think I have a mirror? I understand that this is all temporary, even if it seems like forever.
I've been hit and miss in reading you guys. I'm having a hard time processing anything I read.
I'm not really sure what God has planned through all this but I know that it will lead to good things that I have not even thought of yet. Hell, I've already quit smoking.
You guys are so wonderful for checking in on me.......thank you.
