Catching Up

This was reaction yesterday when my doctor told me he wanted me to spend the night in the hospital. What I thought was a cold turned out to be an exasperation of my COPD. I have been having difficulty breathing, coughing and other cold symptoms. My oxygen levels are down. After taking a breathing treatment in my doctor's office my chest sounded better and I was breathing easier so he let me go home with antibiotics and a shot in my BEE HIND!!!

Battling my breathing all week took my mind off the minor surgery I had on Monday. I go back this coming Monday to have the bandage changed then I'll get the stitches out in another week. Right now all I want is to be able to take a deep breath and not get winded walking across the room.
I want to thank everyone for their kind comments and emails this week while I've been healing. It's going to take a few more days before I'm feeling back to normal, but at least now I can sit up and blog.

I hope everyone had a nice Halloween. This is a picture of one of my son's kittens. As you can tell she was getting into the spirit of the holiday!!

My son and his family came over to Trick or Treat on Thursday evening. I enjoy the little ones coming by for their treats, but this year I could only watch from the window. I was disappointed that I wasn't able to go out with my granddaughter. Didn't she look adorable!!!

My goal this weekend is to stop by and catch up on your lives!

Hi Linda,

Oh, I am sorry you've been having breathing problems this week. I hope you are feeling much better and breathing much easier.

Your granddaughter does look adorable, and I love the picture of the kitten.

Take really good care and have a good weekend.

I didn't know you have COPD or if I had read that then I had forgotten it. However, I don't think I would forget something that serious. I am troubled to hear that. Glad you didn't have to spend a night in the hospital and pray that you will be better soon. I will continue to remember you in my prayers.

Hi Linda,
Sorry you haven't been feeling well and hope you have a good recovery. This is my first visit to your blog. I came because of a comment that Grams left on one of my posts, telling me that you are from WV, since I am also from WV. I, too, am a State government retiree. I live in the Charleston area. Please visit my blog. I am just learning to blog and have yet to learn how to put the pretty graphics on it. I really like your blog and hope that mine will improve with more experience. I really like the pretty fall photo you have at the top of your blog. It looks like it would be a nice road to take a walk down.

Glad I found you and I will be visiting often.
