Pneumonia.

So please forgive my lack of blogging, if you don't follow me on facebook you probably didn't see these.







I woke up Monday morning telling David that he needed to take the kids to school because I was sick.
I've never been that sick, it was insane.
Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday were spent laid up on the couch in and out of sleep. I have no idea what happened any of those days. David tried to feed me, tried to give me water, I was a blob on the couch.
Thursday I finally started to feel a bit better, I woke up and decided that I could shower. I did and then picked Maddie up from preK because David had an appointment. I ran into the car. Yup, I ran myself into the car while trying to walk around it to get it. I wasn't better at all.

Finally on Friday, I caved. I told David to take me to the ER. Three hours later, I was on my way home after a chest x-ray, half a bag of fluid in me and some pills and an inhaler. I had pneumonia. No fun at all.
I missed the kids' trick or treating, I missed Fin's guitar lesson and Maddie's ballet class.
I missed a whole week of life. It was absolutely insane.
Thank God for David- poor guy's been home with a fractured tailbone and has spent the past week and a half taking care of EVERYTHING around here. I feel so bad for him but am so grateful for him at the same time.

After taking all of my antibiotics, I'm happy to report that I am feeling a bit better. I'm still dehydrated, weak and doing too much wears me out. Oh and I'm still coughing like crazy. I'm less miserable though and able to help out around here again thankfully.
So yeah... that's my update.

I feel like I've missed so much in blogland though too, to include my own new layout! Do you love it?! Chelsea did such an amazing job!
So tell me, what have I missed?! What's going on with you guys?
