Lounging on the Couch Pneumonia

That is my revised (self assigned) diagnosis. I am lounging around today looking at this dreary endless rain. I have rented Grey’s Anatomy (Season One) on DVD and The Pilot’s Wife. I have watched the latter, and as expected, it was sad.

AF showed her unwelcome face last night. I am never glad to see her, but it is a good thing I guess. Out with the old, in with the new and all that. I want my little frosties to have a nice fresh and welcoming nest to settle into! Also this eliminates my worry that she, will arrive later and spoil all the plans.

The cough thing is still pretty miserable, but I have put my faith in modern antibiotics. I should feel much better in another day or so.

This morning I had my first estradio*l valerate injection: 2mg, 0.1ml, I.M., hardly worth poking a hole in the buttocks for that tiny amount of medication. Why can I not have the patch like some of you gals get? Will have to quiz Dr. Funnypants about that later. The good news on the EV inj. is that you only do it 2x per week. Lupro*n continues daily at half the dose.

So, nothing happening here in Beagle’s world. Just having a big old DVD snuggle fest with the kitties, all four of them (we need a bigger couch!) Family size tissue box and giant mug of tea in hand. Ahhhhhh.

Thanks for all the sympathetic comments. You can never get too much sympathy!

    AF on top of everything else? The silver lining is that your doing it right – couch bound with dvd’s and pets. That’s the best medicine.

    Hope you are feeling better – ugh. Let the meds do their thing!

    I am still not recovered from the Grey’s season finale. LOL

    snuggle-fest sounds SO good to me right now – minus the sick of course. I hope the antibiotics are starting to kick in… and YAY for starting the FET cycle! I will be hoping for you!

    I hope watching that much McDreamy was just what the doctor ordered. And kitties are fantastic nurses.

  18. Thalia Says:

    Sorry you’re feeling so grotty, but it sounds as if you are on the mend. Sofa plus tea and kitties sounds good to me.

  19. Rebecca Says:

    A cuddle fest with the kitties sounds very relaxing, but I’m sorry you’re also needing the tissue box and tea. I hope you feel better soon.

    The Grey’s Anatomy DVDs are a great idea. I’m planning to rent them while I’m on bedrest – I only started watching earlier this year, so there’s lots to catch up on. Enjoy!

  20. Sarah Says:

    Sounds like you are settled in to life on the couch! Hope you feel better soon.
