My Double Lung Transplant

The Reign of Pneumonia continues...

Since being so violently shoved in the face the other day with the news that i have pneumonia, I can say that I quite agree with their diagnosis as I sit here roughly 3 days into it.

Now i 'feel' like i have it. My chest is sore, phlegmier and my left lung feels plastered to my rib cage today. I am more out of breath, exhausted, coughing more, all that fun, glamorous stuff. I am on 10 days of Levaquin so we'll see what it does. I am speculating that it will do nothing and something drastic will have to be done. I don't know why, but my spidey senses tell me i do.

To add to this ultimate barrell of fun is allergies! Things are blooming and my nose is running, and my allergies also make my lungs act like bitches so double yay on that font. I'm a giant ball of gorgeousness at the moment. My throat also hurts, and despite sleeping 11 hours lastnight I cannot keep my eyes open even tho I've only been awake for about 5 hours.

Triple yay.

Lastnight, in our usual Friday night tradition, i saw a horror movie with Jess. We saw The Haunting in Conneticut, and i can honestly claim that i have never screamed and jumped so much as i did in that movie. It was great that the trailer didn't show all the good parts either, coz we went in expecting that to be the case. We were suprised and elated, and i was terrified to fall asleep, but alas i made it through the night.

I had a dream this morning that i got the call - twice. I don't know how to describe it...they happened 2 days apart and the 2nd call i got the lungs on. I don't know if the first call in my dream was a false alarm, or if it was THE false alarm i had back in Sept, and the 2nd call will be the time i get my actual transplant...or if i'll get 2 false alarms and THEN the tx. It sucks coz we won't know until it happens, eh?

That's about it. I may be sick with pneumonia but i am happy. It is gorgeous out today. Hope u all have a great weekend!:D
