Pneumonia

Is, I think, a phonetic spelling of the sound people with it make when they cough.

I am one of those people. After three days of unsalted hospital food and doctors who only enter my room after donning full-on on haz-mat gear, I am home. Well, a home. I am being taken care of by my mommy (I promise I only call her that when I am sick) in Connecticut.

And I am glad I didn't (until now) know that pneumonia is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States.

Phew. Thank you, antibiotics. I owe you one.

Hey, when's your due date?

Are you serious?! You poor thing. I'm so glad you're ok. I'm sure it's bad enough on it's own without being pregnant. Good grief. Glad you're getting a little r&r in CT. You're definitely in good hands. I'll give you a call soon.

Scary! Glad you are home, with your "Mommy." And yes I still call my mom that too. Mommies are the best!

Feel better soon. Nothing's worse than being pregnant, or sick, except for being both.
