First, I have to say thank you, thank you, thank you for all your warm, heartfelt, encouraging comments and emails on my last post. I don’t talk about my health a lot on my recipe posts, even though its a huge part of my life, so I can’t express how humbling it is to to feel so loved by such an incredible community of readers I’ve never physically met when I share something so personal. So thank you again for the internet hugs!
I hope you all had an awesome 4th of July! I had every intention of posting these incredible Tandoori Chicken Kabobs with Cilantro Yogurt Dip plus the best Spice Rubbed Steak with Herb Butter (coming soon) all before the 4th and was giddy at the thought of you feasting on them with your family and friends but sometimes life doesn’t go as planned. Instead, I have been in the hospital for over a week with pneumonia with almost constant fevers for over 6 days. Or in other words, a smelly, nauseous, hot and cold, pathetic limp noodle.
Typically, when I’m hospitalized with pneumonia (due to being immuno-suppressed due to having a lung transplant because of cystic fibrosis), I feel better almost right away and can go home a couple days later to continue IV antibiotics myself. But after almost 18 years of post-transplant pneumonias, my body isn’t responding as quickly to the now one IV antibiotic I still show sensitivities to.
I’m not going to lie. Its kind of scary.
