The Tuesday before we headed up north for Eric and Sunny's wedding I finally decided I needed to go to the Dr. to see why on earth I was having such a hard time breathing. I couldn't lay flat, and I had been sleeping in the recliner. Breathing was so painful, and I was already having a hard recovery. I lost it that Tuesday morning, I couldn't do it anymore. I called a friend who does x-ray's and quickly went in to get a chest x-ray. As soon as I saw my x-ray I knew something was wrong. It looked sooo bad! I called the radiologist I used to work for and asked him if I could come have him read it for me. We headed over to the clinic and he said I had pneumonia and pleural effusion of the right lung. We called and let Dr. Lunt know and he got me on a z-pack, another round of antibiotics and an inhaler. I was soo glad we went and got everything figured out before we headed up to Eric and Sunny's wedding. I would not have made it through the wedding weekend. It was kind of weird being the patient getting the x-rays, I have never actually had x-rays before but I sure have taken a lot of other people's!
