Today, we had summer! It was 82F in the afternoon! But the weekend is supposed to be cooler and there is another rain shower in the forecast for Sunday, so the sunshine and warm temperature was much appreciated, today.
I spent a quiet morning, while daughter went out to breakfast with her friend and, since it was such a lovely day, a spur-of-the-moment trip to the beach! Later, I went to my doctor's appointment. The doctor (Physician Assistant, actually) was very pleased with my state of health, today, saying my lungs were clear and it was as if I had a new pair of lungs! She said she had been very worried about me when she saw me on Tuesday. I guess I looked and sounded pretty bad! I told her that the breathing treatment had helped. So, I guess it was asthma aggravated by the cold/cough and not pneumonia! LOL. I still have a bit of the cough lingering, but that is to be expected. I was told to come back in one month's time for a follow-up, BUT, if there was anything else in the meantime, if the cold returns, if the cough gets worse, etc., I am to call and come in right away! I promised I would! I weighed in at 1 lb. less than on Tuesday, but I don't know if that is an actual weight loss or just a fluctuation.
On the way home from the clinic, I stopped to put gas to the car and went to the pharmacy to pick up my medications. Then, came home and rested a bit. Daughter was already home from her trip to the beach and showed me a picture of the cat sand sculpture she had made. I didn't have my glasses on and thought it looked like a frog! She pretended to be highly indignant, but she says she, too, can see the frog after I pointed it out to her! LOL.
My gardener friend came over to do the garden today and he trimmed the weeds in the side yard and tidied up the front garden. We discussed the possibility of making a raised bed or two and planting some vegetables. He first started working on my garden when I was in hospital having my daughter, which means he's been doing my garden for 24 years, now. We talked about that, today.
In the evening, daughter went out with friends, again, to participate in an escape room adventure and then, dinner out. I relaxed at home and called my cousin to wish her for her birthday.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Clear lungs! No pneumonia, after all!
- A warm, summer-like day!
- Daughter had a fun day with her friends.
- A safe drive to the clinic and back.
- Getting a couple of errands done.
How was your Friday? What are your weekend plans?
