#SoCS – Pneumonia

32 Comments

Spent 17 hours at the hospital last night. Came home and slept for 3 hours. Going back. Hopefully not to spend another night in a chair.

The world needs more people who can sign.

Who can communicate with the Deaf when they need it most.

Wish us luck. Alex has pneumonia and I’m truly exhausted in every sense of the word.

  2. Ick!!! I had pneumonia when I was fourteen! It led me to my first ever ambulance ride! The next year, I took my mothers car (without permission) to drive myself to the emergency room with a busted eardrum. Then, the following year, I was blessed with Scarlet Fever and was forced to spend two weeks out of school despite not being contagious. I just looked and felt like I had the Plague! Somewhere in those years I locked myself out of the house in the heat of the day and ended up on four meds and three creams while I had blisters almost an inch high on my shoulders and the tops of my feet from sunburn. While all of this is true, I am letting you know… there are worse things. You WILL get better. Also, I am one of those people that when I get sick, I get SICK and after about 14-17, I may have been sick three times in the almost 25 years since. Get better soon!!!!

    • Ugh, I had them all as a child too. Getting sick sucks! However it was my son who got sick this time. After a three-day stay at the hospital, he’s home and healing now.
      Thanks for your good wishes! 🙂

  11. It’s hard to find places that teach signing. Everything is now “lip reading.” It used to be you could take a course in ASL at any high school in the evening, but we couldn’t find anyplace that teaches it, at least within driving distance.

    Don’t worry too much. Kids get over pneumonia a lot faster than do their parents and usually, with no serious after effects. My son got pneumonia every year until finally, flu shots brought it to a close. Of course, you will worry, but kids have a lot of energy and bounce. Unlike us!

  25. Ugh. That totally sucks. Thanks for letting us know, we do care out here in the blogosphere! (And no “sorry” needed for you post, but I know from having Canadian friends that apologizing is hard-wired into you guys. ♥ (said with love))
