Out Sick

I want to first say thanks to everybody for their nice comments about my new 'do'!

I am currently in the hospital with double pneumonia and I am liable to be here for a week at least. I will not be blogging so just wanted to let everyone know why I will not be around for a few days.

On Wednesday evening, out of the blue, I got really sick with chills and a high fever. The next day I went to a local clinic at the lake, was transported by ambulance to San Antonio and have been admitted to ICU in our local hospital.

When feeling better, you know I'll be back.

My sister Cheryl is the one who typed this post because I wanted you all to know what was going on. Please keep me in your prayers.

Take care and I just *have* to say, "See what happens when you cut your hair short? You caught pneumonia!"

And if anyone else has already said this, I apologize in advance. My Easter weekend company just left and I am dead on my feet, but just wanted to check on my blog friends. Take care.

mama meji said...

Praying for you...

Leah said...

Kellan! Oh my word! I wish you a speedy recovery... HOLY COW! That's some serious business. I had a rather rushed and serious extended hospital stay (I was getting released right about this time a year ago), but I never had any sort of ambulance transport or ICU stay. HUGS HUGS HUGS!!!!! That must have been rather scary and traumatizing, especially for your two younger children who were still with you at the lake!!!!

MORE HUGS and I hope to hear from you SOON that you're home and recovering nicely...

JO-N said...

Oh, Kellan, it's a tough period for you. Do take care and I'll pray for you now. When you get well, there will be awards for you over at my blog but that's not important. The most important thing now is to get well quickly.

Wonderful World of Weiners said...

Keeping you in my thoughts...

Couldn't you come up with a better way to get some attention?? :)

First the haircut and now ICU??

Jeesh, what some people will do!

Hallie :)

Melanie said...

I was just thinking, "Kellan must be so busy enjoying her vacation she hasn't had time to do much blogging." So I thought I'd better stop by and check on you.

So sorry to hear you are so sick. Praying that you are feeling better and out of the hospital soon.

Kellan, that pneumonia thing can sneak up on you so quickly! A bridge-playing friend of mine was hospitalized last month with it.

Your thought that you might be out for a couple of weeks is probably dead on.

I've been thinking about you. Take all the time you need coming back.
