I'm an "Indoor" Kind of Girl...

While I have a lot of tales to tell you - ranging from the hysterical, to the horrifying, to the happy - I think today I'm going to tell you all why I'm an indoor kind of girl this summer.

Most you remember that I am asthmatic.  Right?  And, thankfully, it has been largely under control except a bought with bronchitis about once a year.  Well, this lucky lady got hit with bronchitis/pneumonia twice over the winter.  Not fun!  Of course, looking back I'd happily do it again instead of what happened next.

I went to work one day in April not feeling all to well and through the day had a few people tell me to go home or go to the doctor.  Did I listen?  NO!  I waited until the end of the day and decided that it might be a good idea to go to Urgent Care.  I was there no longer than five minutes when they packed me up to the hospital.

Turns out - I had a 103 degree temperature, was septic, diminished breath sounds, a pulse rate of over 170 beats per minute and sky-high blood pressure.  They thought I was going to code and flat out told me that.  Scary, right?!

I was lucky - I got lots of nebulizer treatments, a super fun IV that I thought was going to poke back out of my hand, and antibiotics. Did I mention that I fought with them when they told me I was going to be admitted?  Yeah, not my finest moment...but I got to go home almost 24 hours after my hospital stay started.  Before I left, I had a fun chat with a pulmonologist who warned me that I am under no circumstances to be outside in heat, humidity or pollen this summer or he'd be seeing me again, and next time I might not be so lucky.

So...who has a few fun craft projects for me this summer?



  1. Yikes! Definitely take care and stay inside!

  2. Ouch!! Might be a good time of the year to catch up on some Netflix shows??

  4. Oh no! Glad the doctor got you all fixed up. If you're crafty I would suggest making a cooler. Its kinda college-y but still lots of fun! If you can make lots of one craft maybe try opening an etsy shop.

  5. Oh no! That's terrible! But I'm sure you'll find all kinds of things to do instead!


I LOVE comments! Tell me what you're thinking. :-)
