If only it wasn't so hard to breathe...

...then I could be asleep right now...
But instead, I'm coughing and coughing...and when I'm not coughing, I'm struggling to feels like someone is sitting on my chest...
I'm sure that antibiotic will be kicking in any day now...
Picture from Hometown
This is one of my favorite pictures, I always look at it and imagine myself coming across this scene sometime when I'm out hiking.
Except tonight I look at it, picture myself out hiking, and can't even imagine being able to breathe that much!
I love oxygen!  Wish I had some!  :(
On a better note, my daughter and I were watching 'The Secret Garden' tonight, and the phone rang twice during the movie (both times for her, of course)...and both times, she said to her friends on the phone, "I'm watching 'The Secret Garden' with my mom, I'll call you back after the movie."
I still rate!  Yay!  It made me feel so good...


  1. Awww, so sorry you're poorly :o(
    Hope you feel better soon.
    Must have been a nice feeling when your daughter chose to watch the movie with you instead of talk to her friends!!

  2. Hope you are feeling better soon! I love The Secret Garden (all the movie versions and the book). A Little Princess too.

  3. I am feeling for ya! I am leaving work early this evening to be seen in the fast track in the ER to get something. I can't stop sneezing!!!! Oh and my chest! Isn't it strange how it seems the whole country is getting it?

  4. I know how you feel, it's been a rough year with the sickies!  I sure hope you start to feel better soon, and can breath again!  That's cute about your daughter and the movie!  :)

  5. I am sorry you are sick.  I know I was for a month.  Could not shake it.  Then had a wreck so I am just getting into things again   john

  6. Hi sweetie,

    I am so sorry you are sick.  These lung infections can be really uncomfortable and it always seems so bad.  One just never feels like doing much when afflicted with this. Yes, please stay on top of the antibiotics and keep taking them even when you feel good since that prevents a relapse.

    I also love to hike and I love the outdoors.  I still think of my days in the Himilayas.

    That is so sweet of your daughter to put you ahead of her friends.  I like the closeness that you and her have.  Sometimes that is the advantage of a much more compact family.

    I am here if you want to talk.


  7. Awwwwww.... Hope you feel better soon! Those things that settle in your chest are the worst! Take care of yourself.

  8. Our symptons are the same and I'm on my second round of antibiotics.  Once it's got a hold of you it doesn't seem to want to let go.   hipe you're feeling better soon!  Pennie  

  9. I hope and pray you are feeling better sooner than soon.  I hate hearing you this sick.  Not just you, but C's ear, and your mom's kidney stone.  UGH!  Just a bad time all around.  I'm thinking of you, C and your mom.  Sending you all best healing wishes, lots of hugs and love!  

  10. Oh you poor thing!  How much more can you take!

  11. Hope you're feeling better soon.  My daughter has been taking a cough medicine with codeine that knocks her out and has helped her sleep...before, she coughed the entire night and was so exhausted...maybe you should get something like that.

  12. :o(  
    (((MICHELLE))) I sure hope you feel better soon.Your all in my thoughts and prayers.  And I love the photo! It looks sooo serene and peaceful.
    Love & Hugs,
