Default I have pneumonia!

looks like my tanks won't be getting much attention for the next week or so... I wonder if it could have been prevented if the urgent care doctor caught it on Sunday instead of just telling me to take Robitussin

Aw, I'm so sorry! I hope you get better soon. Just a lot of bed rest, huh?

bed rest and a bunch of meds...antibiotics, steroids, an inhaler, and cough syrup

oh, and TONS of fluids! MD said I should try to triple the 8-10 glasses recommended! I've been getting up nearly every hour

Cassie, take care of that and yourself.
That is nothing to mess around with.

Bed rest. Plenty of it. And MAYBE a good book if you start to feel better.

I should be okay with my tanks, but thanks for the offer. I should have enough energy to at least dose them each day, and lights are auto, so they should be fine for an extra week or two without a water change, as that takes a lot of evergy.... I'm more concerned about my grindle worm culture...I had to throw out my main one today, since, with my burst of energy I decided to check on them and found it to be infested with little bugs, tons of them, and that's just with 3 days of not checking on them! Good thing I keep two small backup cultures, otherwise I'd have to kind someone to start over! the small ones are in zip locks, so as long as I change the air out once a day, they should be fine, right?
