$100 later...........

OK yesterday I waited all day for my doctor's authorization for CAT SCAN to go through. It didn't. My day that I tried to rest had my husband's car being fixed and delivered. Later realizing that someone else's car parts were in it, had to drop those off and I came home. I still felt really crappy and made husband a steak and when he was done told him I needed to go to the ER. When I arrived it was a slow night. Thank God. Still they hooked me up to some monitors and they did lots of tests, including blood cultures. They did scan my lung. The pneumonia has pretty much cleared up now. I have another few days of antibiotics. The scan showed I have scarring in my lung from many years ago.
Basically, they think I should return to work on Monday but should rest until then. They gave me IVs which seemed to help me. We didn't get home until after midnight. Poor Rob had to get up and go to work today. Tomorow is pay day and I should get my regular check. Two weeks from now I will be missing a week's pay. I only had 4 all purpose days which I will have used last week. We also had a hefty car repair bill and ER cost me $100. I can't let myself get too upset over this, I need to rest and heal. Going right back to bed after I get some breakfast.
CONGRATULATIONS TO SUSAN ON THE BIRTH OF BABY JOSEPH THAT HER DAUGHTER HAD THIS WEEK. WISHING THEM ALL THE BEST AND WISHING JOSEPH A LONG AND HAPPY LIFE.

Glad the pneumonia has cleared up! Sorry about the bill, but it's good you got some peace of mind...and some fluids.

Hey Nelle,

That comment from Ben was really from me. Ben's my son and he had signed up on my computer to check something!

I think going to the ER was the smart thing to do.

Get lots of rest!!
