Free At Last

Oh, hi! Remember me?
I have been MIA lately because I have been in the hospital since 9pm on Thursday night. It looks like I have some type of respiratory infection and couldn't pass air through my lungs. Not good for me or the babe.
We have been in the hospital trying to keep my oxygen up over 93, which I can do if I am just sitting in bed. If I get up to walk or to do anything and I am not on oxygen, then it drops too low.
My doctor finally let me out this morning with the promise I would wear oxygen at home 24/7 and continue with all my medications. So yeah, I am like that lady in the grocery store carting her tank in the rascal around the store. How hot!

I am not going to lie, I was scared, alone most of the time and it really put some things into perspective. More bad luck is something my family does not need right now and this was plenty more.

I have lots of hospital stories for you because being on a floor where no one was under 75 years old, gives you lots of blogging material!

    Oh wow... I'm glad you and the baby are ok. Life sends us alot of little messages and maybe this one is to try and just focus on the positive things. You've got a great family and you're (almost) healthy.

    Hang in there... and pamper yourself a little!!!

    Take care of yourself. And if anybody tries to steal your purse, knock them over the head with your oxygen tank.
