JB1 .......... you hit it on the mark!!!!!~!!!!
After meeting with my primary doctor yesterday, he reviewed the chest xray taken earlier in the week ... and said I do not have pneumonia - as he had thought. GOOD NEWS! It's a pretty stubborn case of bronchitus - but it's not pneumonia.
Even after 10-days of ampliccilin, the chest congestion is still there. A word of warning to all smokers ......... I was one until three years ago - and I do have COPD or more accurately emphysema. So ...... chest congestions can easily become nasty and turn into something serious.
Gizzy woke me up at 4:20am in the middle of a lousy movie. Then he let me sleep until 7:45am after I got him some fresh water. Our drive today was bright and sunny ..... 33 degrees out ..... and Giz went nuts over the two Great Pyranees being walked.
Karen ...... we've only had two dustings of snow so far this Fall - no more than 1/2" each time. But here, we usually don't get much snow until mid-December or slightly later.
I watched more older action movies last night on Encore including one terrible Rob Carpenter movie called "the Ghosts of Mars"! There was an old Vincent Price movie on too that was short stories of Edgar Allen Poe - that was not bad but strongly dated!
Somehow .... when there are 49-different college football games on - none of which I could care anything about, I get into this movie mood!!!! I shoulda put on one of my old VHS tapes or DVD's I guess!
Thanks to everyone for their kind wishes. The chemo SE's I have been getting are more of the type that keep you from going anywhere. In a nutshell, my system is either in the constipated mode or the exact opposite. And this is always!!!!! It has been going on for most of the past 15-months - of one extreme or the other.
So, while there is very little pain involved .... I end up becoming very immobile. And I'm gettin freakin sick of it!!@!!!
I have been warned that if I were to use a stoolsoftener/laxative every day, my system could end up depending upon it to function. What a pain in the "ass"!!~!!!!~!!!
Hey ....... someone mentioned pizza below. Why didn't I think about that? That sounds so good - pretty tough to beat Chicago pizza!!!! Maybe tonight .... especially if there's something good on TV!
Hope everyone has a good day ................
Rob and Gizzy
