*Maybe* regular posting tomorrow. Maybe.

Tomorrow¬†morning will be spent at the doctor’s, so that I can get this amateur diagnosis of walking pneumonia confirmed. ¬†Oh, yeah, it’s been one of those Memorial Day weekends.

      Moe’s going to be alright. He’s Irish, so it will take a lot more to kill him. And yes you can indeed joke about pneumonia. Here’s an old classic one:
      .
      “Doc,” a guy goes to see his doctor, “I can’t seem to shake this cold. Can you do something for me?”
      .
      “Yes.” Answered the doctor. “First, go home a take a long hot bath. Make sure you breathe in the stream. Then, when you’re done, throw open the nearest window and breathe in the cool air.”
      .
      “But Doc, I will catch Pneumonia if I do that!”
      .
      “Yes,” answered the doctor, “but I can do something for you then.”

        This isn’t a laughing matter, pneumonia can actually be lethal.

        • BigGator5 says:

          Sure it can be lethal, if it goes untreated.
          .
          My grandfather had pneumonia earlier this year and, while troubled, I knew that modern medicine has come a long way. My 80+ year-old grandfather pulled through, so will Moe.

            It rather depends on whether modern medicine can kill whatever’s causing the infection (resistant staph or “superbugs” ring any bells?) and – if not – whether supportive care can keep the patient alive long enough to kick it.
            .
            Then there’s the little fact that the scar tissue can remain long after the infection is kicked. Doesn’t affect an 80-year-old as much as an active mid-lifer.

    While we think happy thoughts for Moe’s health, here’s a little something for Memorial Day.
