Stir Crazy

I am on week 2 of bed rest due to bronchitis. I am starting to feel a little better and now I am getting stir crazy. I am cheating a little as I have interpreted bed rest to include the couch as long as I am wrapped up in blankets. I think I have watched every movie on HBO and Starz.

There are a lot of nasty sickness' going around, but for me all these germs can be life threatening. I have had a lot of trouble breathing last week. It is amazing how much we take something as important as breathing for granted. I hate being on bed rest and stuck in the house, but at least I am not in the hospital which was a possibility. The medication they have me on makes me very tired and I am sleeping a lot (at least during the day), which I guess is the idea of bed rest.

I know have not posted an update for a while. To be honest I have not known what to say. The last couple of months have been pretty difficult. I have had to make some tough decisions about treatment and have not been feeling good mentally or physically. The bronchitis is just the latest of complications, but I am making through it all. I don't think I would be able to get through this on my on. I am very blessed to have a great church community, wonderful friends and co-workers that make up such a good support system. If I have not said it, recently - thank you so much for all your help and support.
