Not so Rocking Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu!
Well, as things shall have it. (Yes Dr. John, it's THAT bad!) I went into work yesterday and by 11:30am couldn't even breath deep enough to project a whole sentence. A visit to the emergency room, three breathing treatments, some strange steroid injection, chest Xray, EKG and blood work later - the diagnoses was in. I have a bad case of Pneumonia!!!

I'm finding out that Pneumonia is not fun, but as I sit here at 4am this morning unable to sleep because the steroids have me shaking a jig - might as well write some twisted parody lyrics to this rocking song. =O(

I wanna jump but I'm afraid I'll fall
I wanna holler but my breath's too small
Chillin' and Shakin's got a hold of me too
I got the freekin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

Got an inhaler called Abuteral,
Anti-biotics the size of a football,
Wheezin' and coughin' up gobs of goo,
I got the freekin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

The Steroids makin' my knees to knock,
My head feels like it was hit by a rock,
Stomachs in knots and I just want to puke,
I got the freekin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

I'm tired but I just can't sleep,
So hungry but I cannot eat,
Aches and pain's got a hold of me too
I got the freekin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

Out of work now and gotta stay home,
Call the boss-man up on the phone,
"I'm chronically sick and there's nuttin' I can do,
I got the freekin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu."

    Now Pneumonia I understand. I had a lot of that. I felt it was my job and the stress but it really was walking pneumonia.

    Please get well soon. Rest is very important. You will notice after you are well that dairy products cause problems. Praying you soon will be well.

    I am so jealous - any sign of sickness kills my creativity. What a wonderful attitude have and what a great sense of humor. Get well soon.

    I like what Sherry said - what a wonderful attitude and great sense of humor you have. It is a very good medicine.
    Thanks for sharing this "freeking pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu" lyric and video.

    But take good rest and get well soon.
