Billy, take care of yourself. Many of us are reaching 1 million years old. We don't want to see (see attached picture below)

I am feeling better. I was able to keep some real food down last night. Managed to sleep with out soaking the sheets chills have gone away. Gotta check back with the Doc next Monday. I didn't think this stuff was that bad.

Friend of mine is a nurse. She told me this stuff can kill you. Depending on what level you are at. She has been checking on me. So we are trading home visits for repairs she needs done.Tough old girl because she had back surgery last month.

I ain't planning on going anywhere. Plus my first real meal was from the BBQ shack. Managed to keep it down.

Stay in warm rooms. When I had a cold Ma always talked about "walking pneumonia" when I didn't want to bundle up and stay warm. 3 days and your gone, so don't be too quick to throw off the blankets and coats. Also here in cold weather one of those white thin paper painter's partical masks really helps preheat the air when it's cold outside, made my throat feel better

Stay with the antibiotics, when I had bronchitis I was weak for a month and had to stay on it. Felt good then did work for 5 minutes then weak and had to crawl back into bed. Was winter and I felt best after I drove back home ~ 2.5 hours with car heater on MAX. So putting up the heat is good for it.

The take away from Billy's unfortunate bout with pneumonia is that all of us over 55ish should be getting the pneumonia shot.

Glad you're on the mend Yoda.

A few shots of whiskey can help too.

Billy, glad to hear you're on the upswing. Nurses are good people to know. I've been dating one for 25 years.

I agree this stuff is nothing to mess with. I used to be one of those that never got sick. That was for other people. The last few years have changed my mind.
