Today I was diagnosed with pneumonia. Started an antibiotic and was referred to an ENT doctor.
Have had a recurrent sinus infection since July. Already took two courses of antibiotics. Frustrating. I'm usually very healthy. I'm an athlete, for heaven's sake!
That's why I was so slow while hiking last Tuesday. Not surprised I have pneumonia. Have been coughing hard, running a fever and feeling exhausted.
This morning, I started a big pot of chicken broth from frozen chicken bones I saved in the freezer. Broth simmered for five hours. The house smells wonderful.
Now I'm simmering chicken-vegetable-noodle soup with garlic, ginger and other herbs. Hooray!
