You know...I overreact sometimes.
But, my paranoia is not always way off.
Like this time, I actually think my husband wanted to tell me I was right.
Well. He never did use the words but by making a follow-up appointment at the dr. that TOTALLY meant I was right.
Hubby was diagnosed with pneumonia in one lung 1 week, one day ago.
Today, he says he feels better, but his cough and wheeze tell me otherwise.
His wheeze sounds like a boiling pot and hasn't changed over this last week.
So I called him today at work and here's how it went...
Me: I just read online that someone famous died from fluid in his lungs.
Him: Oh yeah.
Me: What if you have fluid in your lungs?
Me: You know people DIE of pneumonia.
Me: You never hear of people dying from an ear infection or pinkeye.
Him: I see where you're going with this.
Him: (doing that wheeze thing)
Me: That doesn't sound better.
Him: Okay, I'll call and make a follow-up appointment.
5 minutes later
Him: I'm going in after work.
Me: Thank you.
Him: hangs up
Me: (still talking) See I'm totally right about this, you finally believe i'm not crazy-paranoid, a follow-up is totally necessary when we're talking pneumonia and ......Hello?!
So maybe they'll do an x-ray, maybe they'll say he's doing a lot better. Maybe they'll change his Rx. Hopefully he's not worse.
Any which way, we'll know what's up and how to proceed and sometimes that reassurance can make you feel so much better.
**Update, x-rays were done and were clear, although there was an antibiotic change. Not 100% better, but not worse!!**
