So after I posted that I was trying to be more active i posted some photos, but I was feeling terrible the whole time.
Next thing I know I am stricken with a horrendous headache, massively high fever and I was bedridden for over week, the first day of which I had collapsed on my bedroom floor and nobody knew I was there. I flet like I was going to die.

After 4 or 5 days like this, I hadn't eaten at all, but I was coherent enough to drink lots of water at least, but I developed pneumonia pretty bad in both lungs. I finally let my dad take me to the hospital... When I went into the emergency I told them I had a severe fever and pneumonia... sadly I got doctors that don't like it when they get told what is wrong with the patient... so I spent 5 freaking hours there till they told me exactly what I told them... great, thanks, meanwhile I can barely breath and am nearly delirious with a fever and pain.

I got put on a nebulizer for a while and got an inhaler and some mega strong antibiotics and sent home... at this stage I wanted to die.

After being at home for several days, not being able to do anything physical and not being able to lie down (I slept in a chair) I get a phone call from the hospital asking where I was... when I told them I was at home they tell me I was supposed to stay at the hospital for observation because I was in really bad shape... I'm glad I was at home because it took them days to realize I wasn't there... LOL

So now it's been weeks since then, I am feeling a lot better, but still not 100%, starting to finally get my strength back at least.

Meanwhile I went to a great car show, took several hundred photos, there were tornado warnings here, so I was out int hat with my truck getting some cool photos... of my truck! LOL

The rain wont stop here... just like the last 3 years... I can barely remember what it's like to have a dry yard I can use.

But enough about me, how are you?

Glad to hear you survived that! Wow, I can't imagine how awful that must have been.

I've been trying to be more active here on DA as well now that I have graduated college. Keep an eye out for new stuff from me.

I hope you or your neighbours aren't getting flooded out, haven't heard any bad news about Edmonton, so I'm assuming you are OK?
Too damned many people being forced from their homes, just heartbreaking.

Yikes, I'm glad you're feeling better and I hope you regain full strength soon. That's not a little scary that the hospital staff got their orders mixed up in regards to releasing you versus making you stay!

Yeah, it was a crappy hospital and I knew it, I wasn't thinking when I went there when there is a really good one a little farther away.

They wouldn't have been able to find you if you stayed there either. :lol:
Hope you're doing better, buddy :)

So Alberta's healthcare is every bit as good as British Columbia's! :p

Been down the pneumonia road 3 times: after the first you know the symptoms exactly.

Any day now I will die of a heart attack. In the postmortem they will figure out what is wrong.

It was a crappy hospital (Leduc) I should have went to the Devon one as it's extremely good, I was just in a hurry and not thinking straight.

I know what's wrong with you...

Not enough rusty cars in your diet!

You have my sympathies, Ryan :hug:
My lungs are bad...but not THAT bad...so I understand your pain!!
I agree about the hospital though...they sound completely incompetent! I hope you have reported them!
Stay well! :hug:

I was wondering about you when I heard of the tornado warnings from the weather network last week. And yay for feeling better :)
As for me right now I am tired and I should be sleeping , but I am not and I am dealing with a lot of disappointment and grief that has occurred in the past three weeks.

Wow, that really sucks. How on earth did you catch pneumonia. What crappy dr.'s can't you report them or something? They shouldn't be dr's if they don't care about what they do.

Well it's a crappy hospital partially because they are under staffed right now, and partially because there are a few idiots there... I knew better than to go there when a little farther away there is a really excellent hospital to go to.

No idea how I got the pneumonia, I', still feeling the effects of it.

Goodness, did you ever find out what caused it? What a lousy hospital.. I'd rather be at home than in their care! That's quite scary, but I'm glad you're doing better. :phew: :)

No idea what caused it, next time I am staying away from the crappy hospital like I normally do and going to the good one that is only a little farther away.

I'm glad to hear you're doing better. That sounds like a very scary ordeal you went through.
I had a relatively mild (compared to yours) case of pneumonia earlier this year. I missed one day of work, staying in bed all day until my dad made me go to the hospital in the middle of the night. The hospital staff decided it was the flu despite evidence to the contrary in the form of an X-ray and treated me accordingly. They said to stay home from work the next day. I needed the money so I went to work anyway and just took it easy. It was a two-week contract job and all the money I earned from it didn't cover the 3 stupid hours I spent in the ER.

But enough about me. I hope your health continues to improve and you get back to normal soon!

Thank goodness you're feeling better. Let's just hope the weather clears. Weather's been crap here as well, but at least we had the occasional sunny ten minutes.

I don't have much to talk about. The most fascinating thing I have to talk about is something I'll be posting in a couple of days, so I'll get back to you on that...

Well... now that I think about it, I did learn a very valuable lesson yesterday... I'm giving you special permission to laugh at me. ^^;

Damn, dude, sounds like you really took it on the chin. Glad you're feeling better, though! Y'see, this is why I always get worried when someone suddenly stops existing on these places. I have found out too many times someone has moved on to the great beyond.

I know what you mean, a few I know have vanished, I found out one was in a California prison for possession of someone else's weed... for WEED? In Canada every other person has it, but there it's a huge crime... crazy!

Yeah, they should have moved to Colorado like the rest of the Califonians. Weed is pretty much legal here.
