It has been well over a week since I found out that I had pneumonia. Life and health are getting much better. I think one of the hardest things was that I was told that I couldn't sleep in my bed unless I was in an upright sitting position. I am so used to sleeping flat and I can't recall the last time that I had to sleep in an upright position.
Thankfully, we had one of the chairs from my father-in-law. Both my father-in-law and my mother-in-law were elderly and needed one of those electric chairs that would help them get out of the chair. The chair almost put them in an upright position, but then they could also recline in the chair as well. It is so nice to be able to sleep in my own bed once again. It seemed that whenever I would lay down flat, the coughing would begin, but would finally stop when in a sitting position.
Yes, it is so good to be getting better. I look forward to getting my energy back. It is still tiring just to do the simple things, and while I wait to completely healed, the normal things that are done on a regular basis are waiting for me to get better as well.
