There’s nothing like a good ol’ case of Pneumonia to make life come to a screeching halt.
Let me back up, I have been working, more than ever, outside of our home. It has been absolutely delightful. I have been entrusted with more hours at Central Park School with the kindergarten students and teachers. I totally feel great about being a teaching assistant right now. I am learning so much. With a new appreciation for working mothers, I have been juggling the many demands that come my way with a positive spirit, diligence and thankfulness. Making this shift to be out of the home more has been a very big change for this stay-at-home mom.
Last week, after a full day with Kinders and after attending a birthday party, I started feeling badly. The next day I couldn’t hardly lift my head. I thought I had the flu. Scott and I were alarmed in the afternoon by my overall pitifulness and symptoms. He took me to the ER. After a scary five hours consisting of blood work, an abnormal chest x-ray, and a CT scan…. I was told I had Pneumonia.
I have been resting, resting and resting some more. I don’t feel 100% yet, but I am getting stronger everyday.
I have noticed that when I am down with an illness and as I get better I have a renewed sense of thankfulness for when things are good. Minus this sickness, our lives are full of good and I am reminded to be grateful and seize the day.
