So not the time to be sick.

This is not a good time to be sick. Honestly, there is no good time to be sick, but the timing now really sucks. With surgery coming up at the end of the month, this could really prove to be a big issue.

I went to the hospital on Friday because my chest was getting really tight and my lips kept turning blue, like I lined them with blue lip liner. They did an EKG, chest x ray, CAT Scan and a flu test. They decided that I have chronic bronchitis. (Big surprise there. Got that diagnosis 2 years ago.) They gave me a cough syrup with a pain medication, no antibiotic. So, I made it through the weekend and called my doctor today. I cannot get in to see the doctor until Thursday. Cutting it kinda close. I only have 21 days to get rid of the bronchitis. And when it gets this bad it usually take 3 rounds of antibiotics to chase it away enough that I am considered over it. I will be very upset if I have to reschedule again. The last time I had to reschedule, it took over a year to get it rescheduled again. So, you can see how this is making me nervous.

I am trying to stay positive about this. I will be over the bronchitis before my surgery. If by chance I am not over it, it will not take a year to get another date. :)
