Over the weekend I had some chest congestion...so I took some over the counter cold medicine which seemed to help. Monday night we have 3 hours of dance for the girls, so I sit there watching and waiting. All of a sudden during hour 3, I started to get really, really, really, cold, even with my coat on. I thought, "oh boy." So I quickly got the girls home after their classes, handed them over to my husband and I went to bed under 3 blankets. I was still cold. I did have a low grade fever. Sometime during the night the fever broke. I woke up the next morning with the worst chest pain ever. I went to the bathroom and started coughing up blood. I never did that before and that freaked me out. I called my doctor and he said to either make an appt. with them (it's an hour away close to where I grew up) or go to urgent care. I decided since there was an urgent care place close by, I would go there. My oxygen level was low, and my white blood count was high. My chest x-ray showed an "area of concern" so the doctor is treating me with clinical pneumonia. She said that if I didn't hear from the radiologist today, then they agreed with the diagnosis. She said often times it is tricky to tell the difference between the 2 just with her looking at it. I am on an antibiotic and an inflammatory med. I was amazed when I woke up how much better I felt. I of course pushed too hard today and of course now feel just plain awful.

My sister, mom, and I got together yesterday to bake lots of Christmas cookies. We made peanut butter blossoms, chocolate chip, m&m, some jello cookies, oatmeal raisin, honey chocolate bits, snickerdoodles, sugar cookies, and rolled out sugar cookies. The kids had fun decorating the rolled out sugar cookies. Dad even had to get in the action to supervise the sprinkle and sugar placement! It was a fun day...the 3 younger cousins had fun playing together. Here are a couple of pics...they aren't the best as they are from my cell phone...
