Slowly, and hopefully surely.

For the first time in over a week I’ve been able to breathe a little more freely, a boon as until recently more than 10 consecutive steps had me gasping for air, a frightening experience.

As much as I desperately wanted to do something today, I forced myself to rest, and took full advantage of a power outage this afternoon by having a nap.

I met with the Doctor again yesterday who seems happy for now on the Pneumonia front, but explained that I’ve a good month of recuperation ahead of me, as for my heart, well we’ll see.  There’s a possibility that it may just be enlarged because of the pneumonia.

I will confess though that it’s very sobering to have the Doctor talk to you about your health and use the words “potential heart failure” in a sentence.  So being able to breathe today was a very welcome relief. 🙂

Happy Birthday again to my nephew Jack who turned 2 yesterday, which is today on this side of the world.

Happy Birthday Rustnut!
