I just got out of the hospital yesterday. I was there for a week with pneumonia in the upper lobe of my right lung. I felt like you. I waited too long to go to the hospital. The pain in my right lung felt as if I had pulled a muscle or pinched a nerve. I never dreamed it was pneumonia. I still feel quite weak and very tired. I will be going to my family Dr. tomorrow for follow up and I guess he will be able to tell me when I can go back to work.

I also have been down and out with a cold that has lingered far longer than it should have. I don't know if all this deep cold weather is helping at all. Let's hope we both get back to full steam. Feel better!
