I'm back...well sort of

Thank you to everyone who emailed me with questions and comments over the past couple of months while I was AWOL. I am sorry for not replying to anyone; I have not lost interest or forgetting about Full of Great Ideas. I have had a few things come up that have taken 100% of my time.

As you know, I went to San Fransisco for two and a half weeks at the beginning of August for a family vacation. We had a fantastic trip and got to enjoy my brother's beautiful outdoor wedding while we were there.

Unfortunately, while I was away, I managed to catch a lovely 'bug' and get really ill. Thankfully I made it home (100% medical coverage) when the symptoms decided to knocked me down for the count. After many tests and 4 days in hospital, I was diagnosed with a horrible case of bacterial pneumonia. This was the best diagnosis I could have hoped for because when I was hospitalized, they thought I had a blood clot in my lungs. So far I have been in bed for over 2 weeks with at least another week ahead of doing nothing.  I am starting to feel better but can't sit or stand for too long.Therefore, no blogging for a few more days.

I have to say staring at my house for hours a day is inspiring me to make some huge changes. Unfortunately, I just need to wait until my body will cooperate.

Have any of you ever had this? I hear about people with pneumonia but never expected it to be so severe.

I hope to have something to share with you soon.


  1. Stephanie,
    I hope you feel better really soon!!!!
    I have not heard of this particular kind. I can only imagaine how sick you have been.
    I had pneumonia & missed 1 1/2 weeks of work so I can kinda relate....
    I'm hoping your up and about soon!!!

  2. Oh my goodness, that sounds miserable. I hope you are 100% healthy very soon! I'm a new follower and am having fun exploring your old posts in the meantime. :) Rest up and get well!

  3. Oh sweetie, you poor thing. I have a friend who had something very similar to you and she was very ill and took some time to recover. Hang in there and take good care of yourself. We'll be here when you are feeling better and able to get back into doing all the things you love.
    Sending you big squishy hugs,
    Anne xx

  4. I hope you start feeling better! I am a new follower and I have to say I am loving your blog! Cant wait till you're up on your fret again getting those creative juices flowing!!

  5. I got bacterial pneumonia in both lungs when I was in high school (usually people only get it in one lung). I was in the hospital for a couple days, and then I was at home. All in all, I missed over a month of school. Just take it really easy, drink LOTS of fluids, load up on tylenol or IBU (if you can), and cough like crazy (it sounds bizarre and doesn't feel so good, but it helps get all the gunk out of your lungs quicker). Good luck on your recovery!

  6. Just found your blog and I am loving it!!! ....Sorry to hear you have been so sick. I'm a nurse and bact. pneumonia can really make one sick~ (as you are well aware!). Hope you get better soon.


  7. Oh scary. I'm glad you are feeling better.

  8. Oh my! Glad you are on the mend. I was missing you and your blog updates. Praying for a quick (full) recovery.
