Our long weekend began on Wednesday evening when we went to see the movie 2012. I like disaster movies, mostly for the special effects. Armageddon is one of my favorite movies. I also liked The Day After Tomorrow. This movie reminded me a lot of The Day After Tomorrow. It was pretty good overall, some really great special effects. I enjoyed it.
Then the adventure began. Wednesday night/Thursday morning I was up in the middle of the night coughing (this cough started with a bad cold about 3 weeks ago and has continued to linger). The coughing fit was so bad that I ended up throwing up a few times. I haven't thrown up in years! For Thanksgiving day I took it easy and we went to some friends of ours for dinner in the late afternoon. I felt okay, not really sick, but not 100% either. Then I had another coughing fit in the middle of the night with some throwing up. I didn't want to go to the ER but knew I needed to go to a doctor. I decided to wait and call my doctor's office on Friday to see if they were open and if they weren't, I would go to urgent care. Fortunately, they were open and got me in by 10 am. The doctor prescribed me antibiotics and a chest x-ray, thinking it was probably bronchitis or pneumonia (or something similar). So we went to our local hospital to get an x-ray. The results of the x-ray won't be back until later this week.
The way I was coughing, I'm guessing that I probably have bronchitis. I spent the rest of Friday sleeping and relaxing. I was feeling better and had a scrapbook crop to go to at our church that I was in charge of. I didn't know if anyone would show up, but since I was in charge I had to be there. One of my friends came with some sewing to keep me company. After about an hour and a half and no one else showing up, I decided with my being sick and having just had an overnight scrapbook event last weekend that I would pack up and go home. Spent the rest of Saturday sleeping and relaxing.
I'm very glad we had a long weekend for me to get lots of rest and time for the antibiotics to kick in. They seem to be helping and I am improving for sure, though still coughing some. I will be interested to find out from the x-ray if I really did have bronchitis or not. Thus was my Thanksgiving weekend! How was yours? :-)
