I have a confession to make. Hillary and I have something in common. Yes, we both have pneumonia and I can tell you it's no fun. I found out my diagnosis a week ago last Sunday night in the local ER and apparently Hillary was informed by her doctor last Friday. We are both on antibiotics.
For me, it was two days of fever, a second trip to the ER on the following Saturday night with breathing problems and fluid buildup in my lungs, terribly upset stomach from the antibiotics along with the associated diarrhea. Today it was back to my doctor and a change in antibiotics for seven more days.
With all the publicity surrounding Hillary's problems, the local TV news did a story on pneumonia and reported that some 50,000 people die every year from the disease. I have no clue where mine came from but looking back, there have been faint symptoms going back months. I have a friend who is the same age as I that has had an on and off battle with pneumonia for some years. It's nothing to fool around with.
