It Has Been So Long!

It's been so long since I posted that I couldn't remember how.  Carol King, was that in any of your AARP tests?  Anyhow, I caught pneumonia, spent 5 days in the hospital and missed 3 weeks of school.  Once I got back to school, it was all I could do to keep myself from running out the door anytime a student sneezed:)  Take my advice - never ever catch pneumonia!  If you do have to go to the hospital for any reason, be sure you have a friend or family member who will smuggle food, toilet paper and Kleenex in for you.  It also helps to have someone who is mechanically inclined who can unhook you and hook you back up to whatever they have you hooked up to so you don't have to call a nurse for help all the time.  I have to say my nurses, nurse's aides, breathing therapists and doctors were fabulous and took great care of me!  Not a bad one in the bunch!  My husband and my mom were fabulous, too!

Now that I feel like writing, let's see if I can get myself to do some painting, too.  I've visited some blogs and I will be visiting some more.  You have all been doing some fabulous things while I was on vacation.

It wasn't so much a hospital visit as a wk at the SPA, believe me! said...

Welcome back Candy. You were missed. I can't believe you were so ill with pneumonia. How horrid! But I'm glad you're back and ready to work. I await your next post.

Hmmm... Jimmm, it wasn't exactly a spa. You remember it a little differently than I do:)

Thank you, Carol. I was really strange. I'm seldom sick, I was so surprised about winding up in the hospital. I love the paintings you've been doing. And you also cracked me up with your peanut butter/AARP story.
