Our school district is implementing e-learning for the students to utilize on days off of school and weather issues or delays,
All assignments and responsibilities are listed online for the students to complete.
It was an interesting day with moments of challenge and moments of blessings.
Everyone hard at work.
And when the work was complete, it was time to play :)
But this pesky cough just won't go away, it was finally time to call my doctor.
I should have called sooner, but fear has a way of stopping us from doing what we know to do.
Because this journey began not so long ago with a pesky cough and I was afraid the merry go round was beginning again.
So I called and was asked to come to the hospital (where my doctors office is located) for a chest X-ray and an appointment.
I quickly showered, dropped off the littles and headed downtown.
Nervous does not seem strong enough to describe how I was feeling as I drove downtown, there wasn't even time to grab my favorite cup of Brave.
Chest x-ray went fine and I hurried upstairs for my appointment.
I was immediately hooked up to an iv, blood drawn and a very uncomfortable nose swab completed.
In the rush of the morning, at least I remembered to grab a book.
The emotions flooded as I sat in the infusion room waiting... waiting is hard. But with waiting comes answers.
I have bronchitis and the early signs of pneumonia- its not just a pesky cough.
I was assured (multiple times) that it was right to call and that I am to also call on Monday to give an update on my symptoms (the hope is that 5 days of antibiotics will begin to make a difference and no further testing will be required).
3 hours later I was headed home and treated myself to a frozen coke- it had been a long day
With mandated rest on my agenda, I snuggled up with comfort snacks, the same good book, my favorite blanket and chair and a peaceful heart.
I still feel pretty crummy and worry is always waiting to take hold, but there is much to be thankful for and always joy to be found.
And when I finished my book, I started knitting on my loom.
Because its a lot easier to sit when your hands are busy.
Thank you all for your continued prayers and support.
The road to remission continues and I am hanging on for the ride.
