5/19 Update

I am so sorry that I have been so out of touch this week! Got up Monday morning not feeling well at all. Went in to see the doctor and get some tests done and found that I had pneumonia. Fortunately they did not hospitalize me, just prescribed the necessary antibiotics and sent me home. So I have been working on trying to get better from this, not lose any more weight than I had to (considering that I had no appetite), and get prepared to get back to the fitness center. Needless to say this is moving much slower than I would like!!

Based on the results of my weighing this morning it appears that we may have made the necessary adjustments with my feeding tube to help get the weight on that Duke is requiring. I hope this continues and that we can get listed in the next few weeks.

Charley has had his hands full with me once again this week. Since he has been having to wait on me almost constantly he is worn out so we are planning to just chill out here at the campground once again this weekend.

Also planning to try to catch up with everyone’s blog updates so that I can see what you all have been up to this week. Hopefully I will have some positive news to pass along with my next update and that would be a nice change, wouldn’t it?

Stay tuned and thanks for stopping by!! Safe travels to all who are the road right now also!!

  1. Sorry you were ill, Sherry. Pneumonia is no picnic. Glad you got medication right away. Charley sounds like such a neat guy. I'm glad you have him to take care of you. Get over the pneumonia, put some weight on, and you'll be on your way to recovery. Fingers crossed for you.

  2. It is no fun, being sick....and when you are not up to par anyway, I am sure it is discouraging. We are praying for both of you. Take care and eat some chocolate cake for me, or German Chocolate? or, or........... hugs...

  4. Sherry, just a note to you... Do you know that the very difficult to read '2 word puzzle' verification system is turned on for your comments? It doesn't do much except discourage a lot of folks from leaving comments.

    If you'd like to turn it off here's how:

    Go to your Dashboard > Settings > Posts and Comments then scroll down until you see 'Show Word Verification. Use the drop down box to select 'no' then 'Save and Exit' at top.
