Sickness and Goodness

Sickness and Goodness

This is going to be short.
I’m sick- like much so.
I came home from a meeting on Thursday with the start of what I thought was a cold…in 15 minutes, I knew it was worse and assumed flu…by Friday morning, I was at the hospital with apparent bacterial pneumonia.
Let me just say, not fun.
It’s been particularly scary since I’m pregnant…being one of those people who gets on the internet and reads things when they’re sick (PS, for the love of god, don’t be one of those people) I’ve literally worked myself into a total anxiety ball of knots.
It’s not been a good 4 days to be sure.
I think I’m starting to feel better though so taking one day at time and crossing fingers that the antibiotics are really working and kicking the ass out of those stupid bacteria bastards.
I’m not one for pills but at times like these, I’m looking at the horse pills like golden nuggets.
Also attempting to eat my body weight in raw garlic, which is PS sooooo not pleasant.
Taking zinc and smearing my chest in lavender oil so I think I’m covered…any other suggestions on the complimentary medicine side of things are always welcome.
Anyhoo…enough of that.  
I plan on being better…soon.
So,  I’ll leave you with a little progress report….#projectalreadyfabulous styles.
I was VERY happy this morning when I opened my email to find an update picture from my client.
Rug, chairs and lamps have arrived and all I can say is AMEN….
Beyond happy with how it’s all coming together,
{PS, if you’d like 2 of those fantastical chairs for yourself, CC Deux Vie has two left…wish I had somewhere for the pair}
And with that, I’ll sign off and resume my plan of zero activity.
I’m not sure if I’ll be posting for the next couple of days- wanted to stop in though and let you know what was what.
Promise to check in when I’m all back to normals.

    Oh noo, I so hope you feel better! When I was preggo I would hey sick quick like that too. Slight sore throat, within half an hour its intense cold sweats and dying ill. What gives? How you manage to accomplish anything sick and pregnant is beyond me! Hope it passes fast and you are okay!

    On a happy note, that dining room is coming along fabulously! Looks amazing xo

    Oh no! I’m so sorry to hear that you are sick. Hopefully, the drugs kick in quickly and you and the baby recover quickly. Be sure to take some probiotics because it will combat the awful bacteria. Def good to take anytime you are on antibiotics. Xoxo

    rest and take no less than 3 steamy showers a day. i would advise you to take my tried and true detox bath but i don’t know what the protocol is for preg ladies and baths. i took them without a hitch when i was preg..but i defer to you. i’ll give you the scoop if you want. email me. but in lieu of the bath, a steamy shower will help to get rid of the crap.
    the dining room is beautiful.

    Lovely project update, but oh my goodness, get better soon! Sending good wishes your way. About herbal teas – I always respond well to simple honey and lemon tea when I have winter bronchitis (much less serious than pneumonia, I know) – they seem to relieve chest ache and clear lung congestion.

    Take care of yourself. Wishing you a speedy recovery. I too was hospitalized when I was pregnant with the twins for pneumonia. It was such a scary time. Rest , rest and more rest.

    Bless your heart, beautiful mama! Rest rest, drink tons of fluids (unfortunately no libations!) to get as much of your infections out. Agree w Jenny, needing a bath, but since the prego state, I’d say hot steamy showers to get it all out of your pores too… sweat that s**t out of you to get better super fast. Not fun being sick, esp when we’re prego chics! Sending you TONS of hugs from Oklahoma! …. will post your cute painting I got on my blog later this week… that should put a smile on your face, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰
