Cachoo

I've somehow managed to get pneumonia.

A very weird day yesterday. I woke up with 101 fever. Even before I called my own doc another doc called me and basically apologized for jumping to the wrong conclusion on a heart scan he gave me, one I was worried about because he'd raised the possibility of surgery because of the way my right ventricle worked. So then I went to see my doc and she checked me out and then sent me to the hospital for blood tests and x rays. I spent four hours there during which via cell phone I got the results of my latest psa test which were not good. Then my doc finished with her day and came over to the hospital to see how I was doing. She went over my x-rays and said you have pneumonia. So now I'm on anti-biotoics. I was supposed to stay in bed today but I couldn't stay away from Half Price and the small library nearest me. Now I'm exhausted again. Hopefully Bill Maher's rage tonight will get me feeling human again. If I'm not better by Monday I go into the hospital for a brief stay. Wouldn't this crap make a great talk show? "And you think YOU feel crummy?" With Ed Gorman!

I won't be blogging for awhile but stay tuned.

We'll be thinking about you, Ed. Hope you can manage to stay out of the hospital.

The siren song of Half Price Books is powerful, isn't it? I visited one today myself.

Take care, Ed. Judy and I will have you on our minds.

Ed, d*mmit, the bookstore and the library will be there tomorrow, next week, next month, and next year. Please take it easy.

Enjoy your Maher, drink the fluids, relax. No stress.

Hi Ed,

Oh, I so hope you will be feeling better soon. Home is so much more fun than the hospital, I will pray you heal enough to stay home.

And you do your part--STAY in bed!!

Love, Terrie

We all love you, Ed. As the Dude says, "taker 'er easy."

Randy Johnson said...

Yes, take it careful. As another who has spent too much time in hospitals, home is so much better.

Be well!

Ed, take care, and hope you get better soon. And if you need stuff to keep you busy, sign up for Showtime--Californication and Dexter start Sunday.--Dave

I hope you get well soon. I had a touch of pneumonia about 5 years ago and it's the worst I've ever felt. Take care of yourself.

Get better soon - we need you!

I just want you to know how much you've buoyed me up over the years. May you enjoy many good years to come.

Enough people have berated you here about taking care of yourself, so I won't add to the barrage. ;) Enjoy those books during your downtime. I look forward to the post where you tell us you're feeling better.
