I have been in the hospital with double pneumonia .... was ccu for 5 days ... moved to regular care 3. Days ago I wanna go home! I guess I was really sick when admitted last Thursday night. Say a little prayer for me If I haven't already pissed you off in someway?!

Maybe even if I have'nt!!!



  • Hey! i have been immersed in my own world and we don't really know each other well...but shit...I'm so sorry to hear you are so sick. I, for one, do not give a darn about attitude when it comes to things like this. So before I go looking for your pissy posts I wanted to send you a some positive, caring vibes. I hope you are recovering, I wish you well...and really, really hope you are surrounded by love. Not much I can offer in this cyber world but my well wishes....get better and come piss someone off! Peace, Ellen

  • Hurry up, and get back here, we miss you! Sorry to hear about your double pneumonia :(

    Maybe if you piss off the doctors enough they will spring you out of there sooner. ( but be nice to the nurses ;) , I was one )

    Rest up, feel better, thinking of you.

    I,ve learned that paragraphs are tough on these tablets --- I have been humbled once again. than for all the well wishes! Their trying me on room air again. Learning how to breath again ---- babies 1st thought was almost my last! 9 days ans still counting. I want to go back to my earthly home. Not ready for the as trial plane yet!

    Thanks again all!! Your well wishes are so very appreciated

  • Hey Dave,

    Get better, sorry to hear about the pneumonia. That is one condition that many don't realize they have, just thinking they have a cold or something. Bad problem, as I was told, once you get it your chance of getting it again are higher. Hopefully them letting you breath on your own again is a good thing. Keep up the breathing treatments they give you, while yes it sucks and hurts it has to be done. Hopefully you will be home before you know it.

    I enjoy your pissy approaches. They are always constructive and show another side of situations.

    Like Tam said, pneumonia is nothing to take lightly. It can really bring your whole immune system down if not properly trreated.

    Looking forward to 1 - You getting better and 2 - Your posting

  • I am sorry to hear your having a rough go of it! Hope your healing goes quickly & then you can piss & moan all you want ;)

  • I miss your pissy attitude and you haven't ever ticked me off. It is a good approach because it sets us straight. You are a smart cookie , an I hope you start feeling better
