Bronchitis Conquered!

For a while there, I wasn’t sure whether or not I was getting better. I felt better initially as the antibiotic took care of some of the things that were making me feel bad, but then I went for a while just feeling tired and very out of breath. I kept needing a lot of sleep, was unable to talk for long, and couldn’t eat much. I wasn’t feeling like I was making any progress in feeling better and I was starting to think I ought to go back to the dr.

Today, I woke up feeling so much better. It was wonderful. I could talk for a while without needing to stop and catch my breath. I was able to stand on my feet and walk around more today. It is so nice to feel like I’m finally starting to be free of this ailment that has had me down for the last two and a half weeks.

For this, I am very thankful because we already had a plan to go to St Louis, starting tomorrow afternoon. I am looking forward to seeing my sister and her family, meeting up with Jeremy’s brother and his fiance (I like saying that…), and seeing friends. We’ll be coming home on Sunday afternoon/evening. I am glad I will feel better for this trip and not so worn out and out of breath.
