Snow Day!

Today we got our first snow of 2012! I love the snow. We are laying low this weekend, so it's been nice to snuggle up with a book and watch the snow come down.J is still laid up. I took him to the doctor yesterday and confirmed my suspicion, he has pneumonia. He didn't feel comfortable driving himself because he was winded, short of breath, and the minute his meds started to wear off, his fever would spike again. It's been hard to see him so weak.

They did a chest x-ray, checked his o2 levels, and sure enough, pneumonia. He was given a whole host of meds (cough medicine w/ codeine, plans to alternate tylenol and ibuprofen, antibiotics, and an inhaler) and strict instructions to lay low, get a ton of rest, drink fluids until he floats away, and absolutely under no uncertain terms is he to share his germs with his pregnant wife.

He still has a fever today, but nowhere near as high. He's also a bit more human which is a step in the right direction. He chose to sleep on the couch downstairs last night and what did I do? Slept 13 hours. Man did I need that! While he is laid up all day today watching the snow from inside, I spent a bit of time romping in the snow with the dogs. Aren't they adorable?Also, this much down time has made me horribly tired of television.


  1. We didn't get any snow in Maple Valley. I kept looking for it, but alas.
    As much as you want to help the hubs, please don't let yourself get that!

  2. Oh man, I am just reading this now - that SUCKS that he got pneumonia! I am getting over it right now myself. All the same meds, etc. here, but the one thing that is weird is the doc said not to share germs with you. My doc said I wasn't contagious and was fine to do newborn shoots. weeeeird. Anyway, I hope he's feeling better!
