So today I did finally go to the doctor. She happens to be a friend of mine from church she is a local Nurse Practitioner actually and we just love her. Having someone who listens is so nice. Well she took a listen to my lungs and without an xray cant tell me if it is pnemonia or not but I am wheezing a bit. She said it could be pnemonia or bronchitis or just my asthma flairing up. We opted no xrays due to the cost right now. I am not super sick I was just feeling like I couldnt get a good breathe in so she gave me some new inhalers as mine were expired. Havent had problems with my asthma in years but with the super cold temps and what have ya that may have triggered it. It has only been 10 degrees all day here at the warmest. brrr!!! anyway she also gave me some steroid packet which I am not big on but she also said it will help with the increase in my back pain I have had recently as it will help with any inflamation I have there. I have been trying to stay away from meds but when I couldnt breathe today I was willing to try. Not breathing or take someting...hmmm let me think... I'll try this. Anyway, I do have a bit of a cold that I cant seem to kick..which could actually be a bit of bronchitis or the walking pnemonia type thing. Anyway hoping to be back up to full speed ahead here shortly. Hubby took us to the tree lot yesterday, Normally we go in the woods and spend the day when we get our tree however since I can't walk from here to the bathroom without feeling tight in my chest we opted for a simpler ooption this year... Anyway I am just laying low today and tonight., We covered the basics in homeschool today and that was good. Tomorrow I hope to feel good enough to do some crafts I have for the kids. Well I am off to clean up the kitchen and make some dinner. God Bless and please if you wouldnt mind keeping me in your prayers as I hope this goes completely away by the weekend. Talk to you soon and Thanks a bunch,

I pray you are feeling better!!! I cannot imagine not being able to breathe, so I think you made the right decision in taking something. I try not to take meds either, however I do when I need to. I will be praying for you!
