There's something in my lung...

Ok so here is an explanation about the comment about our Saturday lunch in the Harbor... We went to the eatery and I got Chinese food - rice, chicken, veges. I had taken one bite successfully but on the 2nd bite I took I realized that I couldn't do 2 things at once - like talk and eat :) I inhaled the rice and it got stuck. Couldn't breathe. And drinking something didn't dislodge whatever was stuck. Come to find out, the rice was in my windpipe (I think) So all Saturday, Sunday and Monday it really hurt to breathe deeply. I kept saying something was wrong. But then the pain subsided. I had the nurse at school check my breathing on Tuesday (at the urging of a teammate who is my 2nd mom) and she suggested I get checked out. Went Wednesday to the DR and they found that I had PNEUMONIA!! It is possible it was caused by a foreign object in my lungs but it wouldn't show up on the chest xray. So I've been home from school yesterday and today... I feel better today but it's still hard to breathe. I'm on antibiotic to prevent anymore infection.

This could only happen to me!!!

Sounds like something that would have happened to me! I can't believe you went for so many days in pain. Don't you just love having a school nurse there for you! Mine is an angel and I find myself often visiting just to hear her calm voice and lay on a bed for a few minutes. I hope you are feeling better soon!!
