Happy New Year-2015 & A Health Update

Thank you!  Thank you!
THANK YOU!

I just wanted to let you know that
I am still above ground!

Thanks to all of you that have reached out
and left me comments.
Thanks, too, to each and everyone that sent me
emails that tell me that you are
praying for a speedy recovery for me.
You all are
THE BEST!
Seriously!
Who knew that bloggers could, and would,
care so much about each other?

I am sorry that I seldom responded to 
your comments and emails.
I have been dozing off and on
and watching old movies.
I can't even read because it is hard
to cough and read at the same time.
It is NOT CUTE!

They ran blood tests and lung scans
yesterday.
I only hope everyone has a doctor
that is as good as the one I have.
She leaves no stone unturned.
I will continue on another 
round of treatment
for two more weeks.

I have some new, stronger meds
that I hope will nip this 
thing in the bud.

I cannot believe how long this is hanging on.
I started coughing on 
December 7th at a concert
and have not stopped coughing since.


I have missed the parties
and all the Holiday preparations 
that  I so  love~
but I did 
CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS
with my family.
I hope to post a few pictures soon.
Let's hope that happens before
the 4th of July-
which will be here before we know it.

So that is the update and
with that being said~
I just wanted to wish you a 
BLESSED & WONDERFUL
NEW YEAR!

I pray for 
HEALTH
HAPPINESS
&
LOVE
for you and your families in the upcoming year,

And, lest you think I lost my sense of humor
I have been thinking a lot about
aging another year.
I have decided it might not be too bad after all!
Bet that doesn't surprise you in the least.

I will be back soon!
Pinky Promise!

  1. Happy 2015! Good to read that you are recovering. I mentioned before how I had pneumonia once and I remember how it wiped me out. I felt a bit short winded for 6 mos. afterward too. I'm glad your doctor is checking you out thoroughly and hope the anti-biotics kick this in the behind right away! Drink tea with honey :-)

  5. In Spring I had bronchitis that seemed to last for months and several rounds of antibiotics. So, I understand how you feel about the cough that just won't go away! I was afraid of pneumonia. I hope you don't have that. and that you feel like your "ole" self soon!
    Big hugs!

  10. Oh, Diana, I am so sorry that you have been under the weather for so long! I hope your family has been good to you and pampered you during your illness. I hope that as soon as you get over this that your 2015 will be illness-free the rest of the year. Hugs to you and bless your little pea-pickn' heart.

  11. Hi...I found you through Preppy Empty Nester...I did not go back to read your other posts, but when I read how much you have been coughing...I needed to share just in case....2 years ago I contracted whooping cough (WC) at the age of 49...I started coughing and didn't stop...it was not diagnosed until about day 35...I am a school teacher so if you can imagine I had been to three different doctors and none considered Pertussis...I had a coughing fit at school one day and fainted...the school nurse insisted I get in an ambulance...I was finally diagnosed at the emergency room. The cough lasts for a long time, but what kept me going was that knowing the diagnoses I knew it would eventually end...Good luck...I hope it is not WC as I wouldn't wish it on anyone, but hope someone might consider just in case. Praying for you.

  29. Diana,I'm so sorry this has hung on so long! I do understand because I had a similar situation several years ago. I was in the hospital, in isolation, for seven days. Pneumonia is no fun! Do take care and follow your doctor's suggestions! Sending love, hugs and prayers your way! Think of you often and miss your funny posts! Sending best wishes for a happy New Year!

  33. Glad you checked in. Praying the new meds help. Everyone I know that has gotten "that" cough has had a hard time shaking it this year. No fun, especially during the holidays. #2 will be having an IVP for her kidney stones tomorrow. Hoping it shows they are gone or have shrunk, as we leave to drive back to school Sunday morning.

  34. happy new year Diana. Hopefully the new meds will work out and make the cough go away. feel better and take care!

I've been coughing and peeing since Thanksgiving, a nasty old sinus infection. Oh the joys of getting older. Take care! Feel better soon! Miss you :-)

  59. Oh Diana, I'm so glad you're feeling better. I've been thinking of you along the way. I can't believe you've been coughing for that long! Those coughs are nasty and sometimes last for a loooooong time. Stay in bed and rest, my dear. I was just talking to my brother about a good movie on tv called The Red Tent. It's a two-parter, so maybe you can watch it sometime.

    Wishing you peace and lots of love in the new year, Diana.

  61. Diana, I just wrote a comment but it was lost. I am sorry that I have not been around for quite a while. I have not been reading as much. My energy level is not what it was. I am so sorry to read that you are so ill. Please take care of yourself as you are very precious. I will pray for you tonight. May I take this opportunity to wish you a very Happy New Year!

  64. So sorry you are still not feeling 100%. Down in our end of the state it is crazy w/ the amount of people who have some sort of deviation of this bug. We were all on Tamiflu in our house for Type A flu, and we all DID have flu shots. I am so ready for Spring! Take care and keep us posted on how you are doing when you are able!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Thanks for the update, StinkerBelle...keep resting and I hope the treatments are working. Our son is finally better but still has to go in for one more chest xray and CT. Stay in bed for as long as you can. I know your Hero is taking good care of you, right? I'm sure the girls are helping out, too. It's a shame that you missed out on all your favorite holiday things, but your health demanded it. Get well soon, sweet friend!

  67. Oh my I feel terrible, I did not know......my computer was out of commission the entire month of December. Sending you a hug, you sweet thing. Do you need a nurse? I can run right up! wish I could,

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'm glad to see a little update, but sure am sorry that you have not yet fully recovered! It sounds like it got you good! Are you trying to make up for being such a healthy lady? Maybe this means you will get is ALL out of the way and remain totally healthy for many years to come! So glad you were able to celebrate with your family. Will continue to pray for you to get better! Blessings for a wonderful 2015~~

  70. Oh I hate hearing this!!!! Pneumonia is nothing to mess with, it doesn't go away quick like a cough with a cold, as you know it will kick your butt for a while....But, I promise you will turn a corner and slowly recover....said Carol (a nurse a 100 years ago) We hate having you down.....It won't be long and you will be up to some crazy crap again and we will all be here anxiously waiting to hear what it is!

  78. Hey! I hope you are getting better now!
    Remember me telling you how sick I was in October, coughing my head off? So, like Bill Clinton said, "I feel your pain". (And you know I can sound just like him! HA!) Take CARE of yourself, my dear, and get well soon. xx

  79. God bless you, GF. Being sick is always awful, but being sick through the holidays is REALLY awful. Hope your meds are kicking in and that you are well soon. We've had lots of sickness through the holidays too. I'm ready for a new year!

  82. Oh sweetie ~ I'm so sorry to hear that you've been so sick! I pray that God lays his healing hand on you and that you are back on your feet soon. My hubs has been very sick, also. I think he might have even had pneumonia at one point, but you know guys....they never want to go to the doctor. So I've been playing Nurse Cratchet to him while trying to stay healthy myself. That was...until tonight. I'm sneezing and hitting the Puffs box. Ugh. 'Tis the season, huh? Bless you!!!

  86. I sure hope you feel better soon. That is no fun having to cough all the time. I have had pneumonia twice in my adult years and coughed so much. Was in the hospital for a week the first time and I was pregnant with my first child. Happy New Year even though yours is not starting off that way.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Glad to hear you around to celebrate the New Year with us! I had 3 colds pretty much one after another and thought I had it bad...it feels so good to be well again. It sounds like you have it much worse, so I'll keep praying you are soon enjoying the pleasures of wellness with me again! Have a beautiful 2015!

  88. My bug lasted ten days with a nose dive into bed on the 26th and waking with a miracle recovery on the 27th.

  94. I do hope this treatment works and you are back to your old self really really soon. I have not been keeping up with blogging so I wasn't even aware that you were sick - but I will be praying now that I know. And - I'll be back to blogging soon. I don't know how soon. I just started a birth and bereavement Douala course and it will be taking up a lot of my time. I didn't plan on this. My assistant NILMDTS Photographer encouraged me to take this class and while I felt I should take it, I really didn't want to. So - I applied for a scholarship and told her I was leaving it in God's hands. Then - God got my attention by arranging for me to win that scholarship. I really thought I had no chance of winning and thought I was pulling a fast one and getting out of doing this. LOL I guess you can never really out-smart God. Silly, silly me for trying. But - the course starts Monday and I have already done much of the reading and am learning stuff I never knew. And it will be helpful to the NILMDTS families that I serve.

  97. I'm so sorry that this old bug has gotten you down for so long. that doesn't surprise me though because my husband had the same thing a few years ago and it seemed to take forever to finally be rid of it. I'm not saying that to bring you down but rather let you know that it is normal to experience symptoms for a while. it's just the nature of that illness. Rest and meds is the best thing for it too. Sounds like you're getting that right now. Hopefully, your health will be restored to normal this year........sooner rather than later! Hang in there!

  98. I continue to pray for you and your health. Keep hope in your heart and the Lord at your side. I am also praying for my mother who has breast cancer and will have surgery January 12.

  100. Well, I can't say that I don't miss your daily dose of nuttiness :) So listen to the doctors and rest up and I'm sure you'll be back to normal (was as normal as you can be) soon !

  115. Oh girl I hear your agony over being so I'll... I developed a cough a week before Christmas, and still am suffering. I ended up fracturing a rib with this cough. I was so sick, and am still trying to gain strength in the littlest tasks.
    Take care, as for good doctors, and meds I have had them all, even had to go through breathing treatments, inhalers, prednisone steroids, antibiotics, cough syrups, and Vicks rub downs, it just has to take its course.

    Take care, blessings your way.

  116. Praying that you get better soon. It seems to bad this year. I have a severe ear infection and its minor compared to what you have.

    We need you back healthy and I could always use some of your sense of humor giggles for the day!

    Take Care and Hugs,
    Amy

  121. Diana I just now read this today. I've been hit and miss with being on the computer lately and I didn't know why but I haven't been getting your updates in blogger. I thought it was a little strange so I came over to your site to see what was going on. Now I see that you've been sick, I pray so much that you are feeling better. My heart hurts to know that such a dear person as you is feeling so bad especially this time of year. Lots of prayers going up for you today and everyday.
    Lots of hugs,
    Teresa

  132. Oh sweet friend, I'm sorry I didn't come by before to visit, it's just that it's been a very nonstop season for me up to yesterday.
    I'm so glad you are in the mend, it's been so hard on you! My mom went through the same for up to just now, but she is 85. Awful!
    Hope you have a wonderful, healthy and very happy 2015 angel.

  133. I'm back, checking on you....and tickled to see you are getting better and your sense of humor is still hanging on. :)
    Mr. Sweet has what you have...and, at 80, it is sure making him sick. Coughing his head OFF...he keeps saying "I'll go to the doctor if I don't feel better by tomorrow..." Hasn't gone and don't know if he will....

  143. I am so sorry to hear that you haven't been feeling well. I didn't know because I haven't visited in a little while. I pray that you recover from whatever it is that is ailing you and I will begin praying for you. Blessings to you, dear...

  144. I hope you continue to feel better and better. This last Christmas was a blur to us, too, since Mom fell on Thanksgiving and spent 25 days in the hospital. Just beginning to get back into a routine. She's home but not so strong.

    Shake this cough, honey. Everyone misses you@!

  145. Just to say I hope you are feeling so much better.
    I made Peanut Brittle today...my recipe is just like the one you use. I cooked mine a little too long...this new microwave is so much stronger than my older one in the olden house...next time, I will adjust the time better. I love PB to the moon and back and now....I'm about to make your peanut butter fudge. O HONEY

  146. So sorry to hear that your illness lingered over the holidays! That's never any fun. I really hope that the doc gave you meds that finally kicked this thing out! It seems that with these things, even after you feel better, the cough can linger forever! So annoying! Feel better and know that you're in my thoughts and prayers! Hugs, Leena
