I spent my lovely weekend with a visit to the emergency room. I had a fever, couldn't breathe, and was coughing up all types of yuckies. Despite starting antibiotics two days prior to my hospital visit, my fever started to soar. Although I didn't think I had the flu, the recent deaths from H1N1 in my area were enough motivation for me to get my tush to the hospital. Thankfully, I don't have the swine flu. I do, however, have a wicked case of bronchitis. I've now missed one full week of work and am still not better. I still cannot take a deep breath or stop coughing. I am completely exhausted. I see the pulmonologist tomorrow so hopefully she will find a way to help me get better so I can get back to living.
