Hi Everyone. Last Friday at 3:30 AM I awoke with a ratling cough and when I sat up up I got chest pains. So my beloved took me the ER. They took a chest xray and almost immediatly I got shaking rigors- chills so bad that my body shook uncontrolably. The nursed had a hard time placing the IV cause I was a moving target eyes   Saline was runnning full force cause my blood pressure was dropping. I was sent to ICU and 2 antibiotics were added to the mix. Next day I was sent to a medical ward. Over the next five days I had saline and multiple bags of antibiotics. I developed a nasty rash and benedryl was addded. I was discharged Tuesday night. I'm now taking levoquin, but only every other day cause my creatinine is up. I'm still weak, tired, and have very bad brain fog, but it's great to be home. Love, Butterflake.

Thanks again everyone. It's so nice to have my HW friends who understand. I still have a slight cough from the pneumonia, but I'm getting my strength back and feeling better. Love to all, Butterflake aka Donna
