You never know what you have until you lose it...

Like your health!
(What my life has consisted of the past week)
Holy moly guys, five days of a high temperature, low blood pressure, chest pains, the sweats, a cough like a circus seal & no appetite really kicked my ass. Dr. Phan broke it to me gently when he told me I had bronchitis which had lead to pneumonia and to stay drugged up in my bed for a week. (but it more technical doctors terms of course)
I slept,coughed,slept coughed & ate like a mouse for six days total.
Let me take this moment to thank a few people who made my survival possible..
Thank You...
To Deni (the step mom) for being very accommodating and full filling my needy boo hooing sick self.

To Kris who came over every day on his lunch break to make me soup and  rub vicks all over my disgusting unshowered (don't hate) sick self & still called me gorgeous.  He's such a liar but damn I love him.
To my Dad for stopping by Safeway everyday after work full filling my I need saltine crackers, club soda  MORE SOUP text messages
& to my Brother for doing everything I asked, and with out whining.
To Venice the most amazing assistant ever, who came in on her day off & covered the rest of the hectic work week.  Life saver and definitely thankful for this great girl.

While sick I did enjoy this beautiful arrangement of flowers that have brought (healthy) life to my room.

And ohhhh my gooooodnessssss.... I am reading one of theee best books I have ever read. My Aunite Nancy as well as a few blog friends made me aware of this soon to be made into movie book.
The Help By Kathryn Stockett

I'm not even finished with it and I can hardly keep myself away from my kindle!
THE MOVIE is released in August.......I can hardly wait!!!!
