So here I am, 8 weeks post-pneumonia... and I'm finally feeling like I'm back to my old self. People told me that recovery would be slow, and its been a frustrating process but I reckon I'm back at 90%.
I never knew that lungs took so long to bounce back. I didn't realise that I would be coughing for a month afterwards, or feel short of breath, tight in the chest, or have dizzy spells on and off for weeks and weeks. I didn't expect that at the first little sign of a sore throat or sniffle, I would be freaking out and be constantly dosing myself with immune support supplements. Yes I'm paranoid about getting sick again, even just a cold. I even got the flu shot for the first time in my life.
The week after I got home from hospital, one of my friends told me that Mr 7 had spoken in class about me being sick. I asked him about it.
Me - "Were you a bit worried when mummy was in hospital?"
Mr 7 - "Yeah... (pause)... I thought you might die" (spoken in a very matter-of-fact tone)
Meanwhile Miss 9 kept getting the word "Pneumonia" mixed up with "Leukaemia"... I really hope she got that straight before she told anybody!
Its been a winter of sickness in the area too, schools have been hammered and we're all a bit over it. And I've always been a lover of winter, but you know what? I'm welcoming summer with open arms this year - lets burn away all those cold and flu germs with a bit of heat and humidity!
Gorgeous 9 day old Madison was SUPER sleepy during her in-home newborn session on the Gold Coast - possibly helped by the fact that it was a 40 degree day outside, so she was lovely and warm in her birthday suit!
She was so happy and comfortable that she slept for the entire session and let us get all the images we wanted, and more. Big sister Charlotte was a superstar too, giving her new baby sister lots of cuddles and kisses. One big benefit of doing a newborn session in your home is that siblings can go about their day without too much disruption - toys, movies and familiar things can make them feel so much more comfortable and relaxed.
