Antibiotics! To the rescue!

So it turns out this sickness I have... is actually pneumonia.  Yep.  Confirmed by a pulmonary MD and a chest x-ray today.  Luckily I had a scheduled appointment with my OB this morning and she forced encouraged me to see the specialist this afternoon to confirm what we both suspected.  And YES.  Baby is fine!  Fortunately.  Now I am on a Z-Pak!  And no work for a week (!!!!).  And no more working in pediatrics (kidding).  But I'm glad I have a diagnosis and (hopefully) a cure.  If it is a bacterial pneumonia, I should start feeling better in a day or two.  If it's viral?  Well, luckily I have been given a week off work to get over it.  Damn those germy kids!!  

Oh ya.  That soup I made?  'Twas delicious.  My pneumonia diagnosis trumped the soup follow-up.  Sorry.  I don't have a specific recipe that I follow but it goes something like this.

Have you ever had pneumonia?  I can't say that I have.  And, let me tell you, it's pretty miserable!!


  1. everyone keeps telling me to get a chest xray but I'm in denial. BLAH!!!

  2. oh no briana! that's terrible. rest up and i hope you feel better soon!

    i had a pneumonia when i was in second grade. i actually don't remember much other than missing 2 weeks of school.

  3. Ugh! Soak in the rest and that yummy soup! I'm glad the baby is a ok!
