New View and Same Old Sad Stupid Story.

Darling daughter Hannah threw a brunch engagement party 
for Dearest son Ben and Helene and their friends on Sunday.
Since it was just for the young folks I did not attend,
nor could I have as ...

I'm once again.... sick

Headed to Urgent Care again today for follow
up to antibiotics etc I got 6 days ago, as I am
no better, in fact in some regards worse.

I have barely slept in 3 days for when I lie down 
my lungs for all intents and purposes,
whistle. Yep, quite loudly whistle and wheeze.

I couldn't stand seeing that post another day so 
here are fresh pics and a new view.

Since I rarely leave the house these days, (no need to) and I 
hand sanitize and soap and water wash like crazy,
I cannot fathom how I got sick again.

AS for everything else, it is one big stall,
until the big cardiology reveal end of this month.

My Smith's market just began home delivery with perfect timing 
for me. Although it is a mere block away,
just shopping while using o/2 and feeling like kaka felt overwhelming to me 
and Howie needed dog food.
Yesterday I ordered soup, ginger ale, 
dog food, bagels and 
orange sherbert. Within an hour ding dong.
 For me, 3.99 
delivery was a bargain.

I need to drag my sorry ass to UC,
so for now a new view but same old sad stupid story.
2019 WAS looking promising after
Kicked My Keister 2018.

Well darn it girl. It seems like getting better is a dream for you and me. I must say I am a bit better after antibiotics and trying to rest but fatigue is my constant companion. I am flying to Calif on Wed with my younger daughter to go to my oldest daughters wedding. We are excited and happy but I know the trip will take a lot out of me. She has planned the wedding with her partner so all I have to do is how up. I am so happy she has found someone special in her life. I do understand the feeling like kaka. We could start a club! Hugs and get well soon's and all that jazz.

EEEK... there must be a run on antibiotics with all the crap going ‘round.... I just started a 2-month regimen today...Hello????? Mine is for yet another of the myriad “consequences” or offshoots of the grand autoimmune disease that has taken my body hostage. I just got over the whistling/wheezing flu stuff a week or so ago, although there’s a nasty cough that hangs on. Sure hope you got something that will help at the UC....and that’s great that you have a grocer so close that delivers. We have been deluged with random, crippling, blizzards, and the past 2 months, and not even snow plows or mail come through....think grocery delivery ain’t gonna happen in this lifetime for me. Feel better...and fingers crossed for good news (or at least ‘hopeful” news) at the “great reveal” at month’s end. Sending you hugs...and hoping you find some smiles along the way... Robin 0

I just don't know what to say as I think you have heard it all before, Z. In my case, I was diagnosed with a compromised immune system and so I pick up everything and anything, regardless of the hand sanitizers and hand washing. Then again, I'm out and about and have people coming and going in my house. Anyway, with my CMV, which is very much like mono, I feel like crap almost all the time. I've been taking a really good probiotic for a year now and I think it's helping.

I once read somewhere, about commenting on blogs---it's not about you. But sometimes I think we want to identify, maybe give some advice, and man, we are usually off target. lol! So for what it's worth.

Best wishes for the happy couple. We are working on Abby's bridal shower in early April. Women can really turn a fun time into a civil war...

Whaaat!?!! Well thank heaven you can have decent food delivered quickly. I am so sad to hear you are not on the right side of this health thing. Congrats to the engaged couple, and keep thinking positive views are a good thing.

Sorry to hear you are you are not feeling well. I too struggle with lung issues. Not to the extent that you do. Have the doctors been able to give you a diagnosis? Mine have always been vague. Estate sales have always been a fun thing for me, but twice have sent me to the emergency room. Once when I lived in California and once in North Carolina. Mold spores and book dust are the culprits. When I lived in Arizona, New Mexico and West Texas, I had to be careful on windy days - dust carries fungus. Now, I wear a medical mask when doing anything that might stir up dust and sleep with a Dyson air filter and a humidifier. I hope that you feel better soon and that you can get some answers as to what triggers your breathing issues.
Congratulations to your son and his fiancé!

Well jeez! I wish I had sage advice but I'll send healing thoughts and do a dance out in the snow covered yard for your recovery. I know you're sick of this shit by now.

I have something I want to send you that I think will put a smile on your face, though.. send your mailing address to

Many years of happiness and good health to the new couple!

So sorry you so sick right now. Some sort of flu is going around in OK. It tests negative when they go to the doctor. but have the same symptoms. If it walks like a duck, etc. My husband deals constantly with health issues and it does drag you down. All of his bloodwork is perfect except for his sed rate which if sky high. H finally had to quit eating and just use the feeding tube, but the good news is that he isn't constantly getting pneumonia now. Which, kind of sounds like your wheezing. I do hope you feel better soon! Hugs, Donna @gather

Oh crap! Sorry to hear. One thing I have never used is sanitizers and I do not wash my hands with soap everytime. Crazy you say? A smart doctor told me once we need some germs in our system to build immunities.I hope you are feeling better soon! Lovely shower! Hugs, Kit
