    Important Info Re: Kim/AM@4Checks
    Everyone,

    I ask for your prayers right now as I am in a bit of a tight spot.

    I've been to Patient First (which is an alternative to the emergency room, but with much speedier service) twice now and will need to go tomorrow as well for more X-rays, etc. They have diagnosed me with pneumonia. I am having trouble breathing, sleeping, eating, etc.

    I am at home and have been since last Weds. I am supposed to be back in the office on Weds., but I'm not feeling much relief and am very scared. This is the sickest I have been in a very long time and I just can not shake it.

    If you need me, I am still checking ABW and 4checksam at gmail dot com as often as I am up for it. I have sporadic access to my Outlook email. I am in no way ignoring messages, etc. and I ask for your patience while I get back on my feet. I will post again with updates and will let you all know when I am back in the office.

    Thank you in advance for your patience with me during this rough time. I'm fortunate to have great family that is helping me to get well, I work on a fantastic team that I miss very much and I will kick this thing just as soon as I can.

    Kim, this is sad to hear, and I can definitely identify. I had pneumonia while still a child (12 years of age), but I still remember it... Rest assured that myself and my family will keep you in our prayers, my friend.

    I hope you will recover soon.

    Kim, I know how you feel too. I had pneumonia when I was a teenager and I missed a week of school while taking strong medication. Rest as much as possible because we want you to get well!

    Feel better quick Kim. We're pros with pneumonia here, both me & my young son. Follow all the drs advice, especially the parts about rest and fluids. Doing too much really prolongs recovery. Stress doesn't help either so try to forget about work related stuff.

    Thank you all so much for the kind words.

    With three kids, I'm usually the one who is tending to the sick. It's difficult to let things go and just rest, but I am trying my best.

    I'm just glad you aren't able to see my house...Right now, the den looks like a toy store blew up. It's driving me nuts as my OCD doesn't usually allow this kind of chaos, but being so weak, I don't have much of a choice. Luckily, the hubby knows (and loves!) all of my whacked out craziness and I am sure the den will be back to normal once the kids go to bed.

    Thanks also for all of the offers to help. I may have to take you guys up on it.

    Kim,

    Rest. Let someone else cook, clean, and run the program. Guaranteed your affiliates will understand and still be there when you get better and have time. You come first!

    Kim, pneumonia can quickly become dangerous. Not being able to breathe can even cloud your decision-making process. Don't be afraid to head for the hospital or even call an ambulance if you feel like you're going downhill. You might actually need oxygen or IV antibiotics in order to improve.

    The house can wait. Tell Hubby to keep an eye on you and the kids and let the toy store stay open for a few days. Let work wait, too. When you actually start to improve, you'll probably be able to manage some communication, but you have to turn the corner first.

    Definitely agree. Really you're feelin soooo bad. Please, don't worry bout all the other stuff and just concentrate on feelin better

    Definitely agree with Judi, too: "Kim, pneumonia can quickly become dangerous. Not being able to breathe can even cloud your decision-making process. Don't be afraid to head for the hospital or even call an ambulance if you feel like you're going downhill. You might actually need oxygen or IV antibiotics in order to improve."

    Make sure you get yourself or somebody else gets you to the hospital if you're not gettin better... hope you feel better soon

    Kim,

    I hear ya sister. I had Pneumonia twice in four months in 2004, following a bout with the Legionaire's virus. Please know that you will be ok once you have been on the antibiotics for a week. I would imagine that they have you on a ten day antibiotic program? It takes it a little while to kick the pneumonia but it DOES work, so don't get yourself in a panic Kim, it will be better soon.

    My best thoughts and wishes go to you. Rest, stay on the meds and before you know it, you'll be kickin it and feeling good again.

    Best to you, let's talk as soon as you are better. :-)

    Had pneumonia twice about 6 years ago. Very scary when you can't breathe! My husband has pneumonia and he's going through h--l, we had to call 911 last week because he couldn't breathe. So it can become very dangerous

    Take care of yourself and get plenty of rest!!! Don't worry about work or the house or anything else!!! You'll be up and around in no time.

    I had pneumonia, too. The pain was terrible but the breathing problems were very scary. Bed rest and antibiotics got me back on my feet in about a week. You have to let everyone around you pick up the slack until you're all better. It sucks but you have to take care of yourself first.
