06:24 pm: Much Better Today and Chairs Attack Cat!
While I was up in the early hours after I napped, I had some ice cream because I felt hot and by the time I went to bed to read, my temp was down to 98.4. I turned the light out at 9am and slept until the alarm went off at 1pm when my temp was 98.3. Missed pneumonia this time! I was up for about an hour and then had to nap a couple more hours. Now I feel like I could handle outdoors with some coughing and the occasional kleenex.

Poor Giorgio has been attacked by chairs twice today. I have a ladderback chair in the bedroom that I sit in to take my meds and I pushed at it, meaning to push it back a bit, but my robe was over the top and it fell backwards, on Giorgio. Then about an hour ago, I rolled the office chair back a bit and Giorgio rushed out of the dining room. He wasn't hurt either time, but this is not the thing for the kitty with PTSD.

I'm glad you missed pneumonia! And that Giorgio wasn't hurt by the chairs.

You have misoailuric furniture?

Pneumonia is not fun. I'm glad you've avoided it. (I've had pneumonia, but the word itself is frightening because it was the cause of my sister's death many years ago.)

Well, that's certainly how it seemed yesterday!

No, it's not and I get pneumonia about half the time after colds.

I'm sorry to hear about your sister, you must worry whenever you get something respiratory.

Have you had a pneumonia shot? I had one four years ago.

I do worry about respiratory conditions. I'm lucky to have someone who worries about my health.

Yeah, I've had three pneumovax so far and am due again in two years. But they're not complete proof against pneumonia, particularly when your lungs are already damaged like mine are.

Oh, I see. That's got to be more than merely tough. Is there anything else that can be done to keep the disease away?

Live cleanly. ;) Seriously, living alone and staying home most of the time is the best way to keep from getting it. I've had two colds in a few months now, and none for a few years before that, so I'm not sure what's happening.

Well, I do the first.

Colds vary, I know. I hope yours aren't too virulent.
