Pneumonia Update

Dear friends,

First of all, thanks for praying! I am getting better.

I've had a really rough couple of days. I have had several very high fever spikes. Last night at 2 am, I woke up running a fever of 104.9. I took some ibuprofen and after two hours, I was able to go back to sleep.

The doctor said my condition didn't warrant hospitalization; that we had caught it early enough to treat it at home. I'm on Levoquin 500mg for 10 days. The doctor said total rest; I don't think anything else is possible.

I've had malaria twice. I honestly think this is worse!

I am totally sapped of strength, but I'm bored and needed to do something, so I'm writing this post.

Again, thanks for your prayers!

Thanks for the update Rick. Praying "dangerous" prayers for you to get well so you can do dangerous things.
