Went back to the doctor today, because my cough is still pretty horrible and (to the delight of my kids) I have no voice. Doc says x-ray shows that I do have "Right Lower-Lobe Pneumonia." But the good news is, it was caught really early, AND IS GETTING BETTER. He was all ready to put me in the hospital based on my continued severe coughing, but after he examined me, he said my heart rate (which was very elevated last week when he saw me) was down, and my lungs sound better, clearer. He gave me a stronger cough medicine (with codiene in it -which will make me SLEEP FINALLY...yay!) and another antibiotic to take along with the other one I'm taking. I have to stay home from work at least another week. Hopefully not any more than that... I don't want to use up all my leave time on one illness...in JANUARY, no less! :-/ On the bright side... I did lose another pound, hehe...the pneumonia diet is working wonders, haha. But I'd not recommend it to anyone... it's not fun!
