    just got back from the clinic associated with the hospital here....

    i thought i had the flu or something....kept putting off going to the doc, even though my temp was running 102.2 as my high, it went down with motrin....i kept thinking i was going to get better....at the doc's office this late afternoon... it was 102.9!!!

    it was a little strange cuz i did not have any head cold/flu like symptoms, other than a chest cold, but i still thought it was the flu.... but NOPE, it's Pneumonia!!! :eek:

    it could take 2 weeks or longer to get rid of it.... :(

    So sorry. Pneumonia sucks.

    That's why I get the vaccine.

    No biggie, 10 days of antibiotics and you'll be fine. I’ve had it twice, once when was a kid and again in my late 20s had to spend 3 days in the hospital the second time, once you get it, it’s easier to get it again. If as you are in good health, no problem.

    Be positive about all this. It could be worse. It could be oldmonia.

    Look at the bright side.:)
