Coming Out On the Other Side

Been in a fog, I am coming out on the other side of eight days of having pneumonia.  Finally kicking it's butt.  Got a pile of things undone and absolutely no energy to get anything done. ARRGGGHH

Dad is doing okay, and at his home on hospice and still calling me numerous times a day.  Brothers have been there fixing stuff and checking on him, and I hope to get up there soon too. Nurses have been great keeping in touch and a retired CNA is available now all hours of the day or night for him who only lives a few miles away.

StepDad in Ohio is doing okay, had a long talk with Mom on phone. He is resting well, and they are looking into pain management and probably Hospice to help out soon too.  His daughter, son and soninlaw are all there nearby to help too.  He has a goal of wanting to make it to Christmas, so we wish him the strength and power to get there.

So that's my update.

Going to back to bed.

Night night.


  1. Glad you are getting better. Keep taking guafanesan.

  2. Karen, I have been thinking of you. Sorry it turned into pneumonia. Total bummer on top of everything else, eh? Hope you are on the up side of it. Take care, enjoy the moments with loved ones.

  3. Glad to read you are feeling better after your illness. Sorry to hear about your Dad. Thoughts and prayer to him and your family.

  4. I think of you and your family often. I'd give you a warm hug and a pat on the back if I were there. Hope you get your own strength back before the really cold winter sets in.

  5. Feel better Karen........I guess we all take our turn in the barrel, but it's no fun. Thinking of you.

  6. We'll be keeping you all in our prayers. You to get back to normal soon and for you father and stepdad to find comfort.
    I know what it's like to loose parents right before the holidays. It puts a damper on everything especially for the little ones.

    It's about time.

  7. You and your family are in my prayers. Take care of yourself and feel better soon!!


  8. Wow! When it rains it pours in your family. Wishing you all as well and pain free as possible.

  9. Oh Karen, NOT Fair!!! Thinking of you and hoping you have the strength to handle whatever you have to handle. By the way, I got pneumonia a bunch until I finally got the pneumonia vaccine a few years ago, haven't had it since. Nasty stuff!
