Today I went to the doctor...for a troublesome 102 fever and great trouble breathing. Guess what? Pneumonia! This is nothing new to me...I've had it, I think, four or five times. So, in keeping with my new goal of replacing negativity with gratitude: I'm really really happy the doctor decided to let me go home and not to the hospital! I was doing so well at Spark (well, not REALLY well....haven't exercised a stitch) that it really was discouraging to think of being put back on the IV steroids, gaining the minimum of 15 pounds and swelling up to immense proportions. Now I get to avoid that! It doesn't seem to be quite real to me to find myself in such a fortunate spot....I was all resigned to the "inevitable."
I guess that's all I had to say in this blog...it was really an update...
