Sick Right After Joining

I joined this site and then got sick and couldn't get on the computer very much. Then I ended up in the hospital for 9 days, 6 of them ICU. When I got home, I was so tired, again I couldn't do anything. It's now been a month and I'm finally getting my energy back so now I'm back online. I've decided that getting old is not for wimps.

Ya got that right - getting old sure ain't for wimps. I learned it the same way you did after 8 days in the hospital.
When I got home, I was thinking, "Hmmmm....how often will this happen?"

No kidding. The last time I was in the hospital other then for day surgery or short stay was 15 year ago. I haven't even seen a doctor or been on meds for almost 10 years ago. Now those days are gone.

Hope you stay well. I, like you, was never sick. I'm not sick now but had a heart attack.
What happened? If you don't mind letting us know.

I hope that you are feeling better and start posting. Being ill at our age isn’t safe. It’s not like when we were younger and we knew that we would get well.

As soon as I turned 58, I came down with pneumonia. Normally, a person doesn’t go to the hospital for that anymore, but my doctor told me that was where I needed to be. I ended up being in there for 8 days with double pneumonia.
