    went to the doctors last night for what I thought was a severe sinus infection and possible upper respiratory infection . Wow, was I wrong , well 1/2 wrong/ I do have acute sinusitis, but I also have inflamation in my right lung again . Doctor said, I'll be right back and I looked at him and said AGAIN ! He said, yes, when you get old and catch pneumonia your lungs are wide open for bacterial infection . After he went out I replayed it in my head ( did he just call me old ) . He comes back in and tells me to go to Warren Hospital for chest xray and come back . He'd have results . Sure enough slight case of pneumonia in right lung . He wanted me to be admitted, but told him JIm need me .
    Like a fool on 80 milligrams of Predisone, Levaquin, cough syrup, and nasal spray I'm taking . I go to work . I was doing good until I became disoriented four hours later and went down for the count . I didn't even feel myself falling until I saw the glass TV cabinet and my face connecting . I put my wrist out to break my fall . I clocked the side of my head on the floor, messed up my knee and back and have a nice rug burn on my wrist . How I did not break my wrist is beyond me . I apparantly tripped over a little leg of a chair .
    I could hear Damuris my associate if I was okay, but I couldn't answer her . I was really outside of myself . The next thing I knew, I had teachers helping me up .
    So Miss Becky says I was downstairs and heard you fall . I thought it was an earthquake . I'm like Thanks first the doctor tells me I'm old and now you are telling me I weigh that much .
    Now why would I go to work ! Well, my boss & best friends husband had heart surgery yesterday . I am so appreciative that I've been given a second chance , I want to prove that I am reliable no matter what .
    I was home by noon and although sore and still foggy headed, I'm ok .

    oh dear









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
