Where's the progression?

I got pneumonia. It is a little confusing how this happened, because normally you get bronchitis first and then it turns into really bad bronchitis. Nope, not in this case. In this case, I noticed around lunchtime that I didn't feel quite right, brought home deli-bought soup that didn't get eaten, went straight to sleep and woke up slayed by pneumonia. Josh was so worried about how my breathing sounded that morning that he said if I didn't go to the doctor he would call 911 on me claiming I'm too fat for him to carry downstairs to a cab so they should send their strongest EMTs.

Today was my first shower since Thursday. Today was also the first meal I ate sitting upright and not in bed since Thursday. And by "meal" I mean applesauce. Let me just say, the whole pulmonary process inside the body is really complex. Breathing is like the hardest and most tiring thing I've ever done in my entire life.

Work didn't happen for me on Friday, and I don't think it's happening tomorrow either.

I feel the same way about breathing. We are all bad breathers in my family and have fought many a turn with bronchitis, sinus infections, etc. Turns out we have an inherited disease call Primary Cilliary Diskinesia.

Feel better soon and let the sisters and Josh take care of you and themselves!
