Pneumonia.

My lungs sounding so bad and since my blood-oxygen level was only 91%, the doc ordered an x-ray immediately. Seems I have bacterial pneumonia. Bacterial, because my inlaws gave it to us when they came for the birth. It went through hubby and both girls, finally getting to me. Due to having a compromised immune system (blood loss), it's hitting me harder and it will take longer for me to heal. Awesome.

So, I z-pack it is. Then plenty of fluids and rest prescribed. Ha. Rest. Yeah, right.

Oh, that sucks!!! I hope the antibiotics work quickly for you. My immune system is still shot too, can't get my GI tract back to normal.

jenn said...

Ah shit hon!!! I'm glad you went to the doc though. I hope you do get to rest a little & recover quickly! damn in-laws! getting everyone sick! ;o)

Emily said...

So glad you got in to the doctor and got meds right away. Try to rest...I know...impossible, right?

MrsJoyner said...

MrsSpock said...

Ack! Hopefully you have someone who can come over and help out while you rest...

Wordgirl said...

Nancy,

I so hope that you have someone who can come and be there, help you out -- that knocks you flat on your ass -- I remember -- the z-pack should fix you right up though...please take care, and be gentle with yourself!

Love,

Pam

Oh noooooooo!

Good luck with that rest. I assume the in-laws will return to wait on you now that they're over their illnesses? Urgh.

And sorry this is happening!

KimboSue said...

Holy Crap-o-la! Talk about a load to take in. Give birth, lose gallons of blood, get pneumonia. UGH!

Jen said...

I hope you are feeling better soon. Pneumonia is no fun at all. I can't imagine what it is like with 2 'big' kids and a new born. Good luck to you!!

Morgan said...

Well that just fucking sucks, I can't imagine how hard it is to be that sick and take care of a newborn. I wish I was there to help ya out!! Take care and get well soon!!

minus one said...

So sorry...like you don't have enough to deal with right now. Could it be extubation pneumonia? You had general anesthesia right? Is it in your right lung? Guess it doesn't matter where exactly it came from. I can feel your pain, I had pneumonia a few years ago - I've NEVER felt so weak and sick before...hope you have a speedy recovery and that someone is there to give you some TLC.

Lee said...

That sounds horrible. Hope you bounce back soon!

loribeth said...

Yikes!! Take good care of yourself!

The Captain's Wife said...

ouch...take care of yourself Nancy. I can not imagine being that sick ~and~ having to care for a new born...

be well friend....

Becca said...

OMG, does that suck.

Take good care and get some help in there so you CAN rest and not end up in the hospital.

Motel Manager said...

I'm hoping the zpack worked fast. One of my friends' daughters just came down with pneumonia, and the zithromax had her feeling back to normal a day later. I'm hoping you're seeing some improvement....

Geohde said...

Oh boy, Nancy. I was reading your post below and thinking doesn't sound like a cold to ME....

Get well soon,

xx
