Thankful: November 17

Always a day behind, I'm now posting yesterday's thankful post.

I am thankful that I have a husband to take care of me when I am sick. I started feeling yucky on Friday and it has continued to progress until yesterday I was so sick that I literally could not get out of the bed. I think, it's probably pneumonia again. I get it every so often. Fever, headache, cough, congestion in my chest, extreme fatigue -- the works. Fortunately, my doctor is a high school friend and Kevin called and got some sample meds for me. He met her hubby last night and picked them up for me. I'd like to say I'm 100% better today, but not so much. In fact, I see a nap in my very near future.

But, I am so thankful that Kevin took it upon himself to call his office (even with a new job) and say that his wife was too sick and he couldn't leave and asked if he could review files and write reports from home so that I could sleep and someone would be able to watch Ellie. He also took care of giving me medicine and cooking food for all of us so that I could stay in the bed the whole day. I honestly don't know what I would have done without him yesterday.

He is such a good husband.

Hey---that getting pneumonia every now and then thing? That's me...or used to be until my allergist said that was *not* normal and did a titre to check my pneumocc*something or other immunity...and it was VERY low. So he told me to get the pneumonia vaccine, test in a month and see if it went up. It didn't--well, not enough for his liking, got another one and a month later, lo and behold--I was in the normal immunity range! That was 3 years ago. I have not had pneumonia in 3 years. Far cry from the once or twice every year and a half or so!!! Feel better, then check that out!
