sundaypostThe Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Hello, Jackie here,

Hope you all are having a better week than I am having. Been in the hospital for a couple of days because of having trouble breathing and its not been fun. I mean you can’t really get any decent sleep bevause the nurses come in at weird times to give you antibiotics or get blood tests done. The latter sucks. Then there’s the fact that I can only do stuff with noe hand because IV problems with other hand. So I’m typng this post with one finger and it sucks so bad because the plug is not close to the bed so I got to be extra careful not to move my laptop too much or the plug might fall. Also, I was planning on doing NaNo but already been behind in words because of being hospitalized. However, hopefully I can catch up with all the words when I get out. Are any of you doing NaNoWriMo this year?

  1. OMG Jackie I hope you recover soon and that it’s nothing serious, being in hospital is definitely no fun! I’m so glad you enjoyed SoC! Sending you healing thoughts, get well soon.

    1. Thank you Jeann! SoC was a slow read, but I’m looking forward to reading Crooked Kingdom soon.

  2. Jackie, I am so sorry. I have had pneumonia several times and not being able to breathe is horrible. So true about the hospital and not being able to rest. Get well soon!

    1. Ugh having pneumonia sucks, which is what I had according to the doctors. Thank you!

  3. Being in the hospital is definitely not fun, hope nothing serious and you are out soon! Props to you for blogging from a hospital bed though- that’s dedication. 🙂 I was in the hospital once and yeah they come in all night- makes it hard to sleep. Not exactly relaxing lol.

    And good luck with NaNo! I’m not doing it this year although I almost did, but Nov. just has too much going on. 🙁

    1. I was getting over a cold so it’s nothing too serious. I always thought the point of being in hospitals were supposed to make you rest, but you can never rest because like you said they come in and out at odd hours. I hope you can do NaNo next year.

  4. So sorry about your health problems, Jackie! I hope you’ll get it all sorted out so you can go back home! Being in the hospital is quite stressful…
    Your new books are awesome! I love the Erica O’Rourke series, and I hope you’ll enjoy them as well.
    Sending healing, positive thoughts your way.

    1. Thanks Lexxie. It is stressful. Even though I don’t have the treatments at home I find that resting at home is a bit more better than resting in a hospital because at least the nurses don’t wake you up at midnight just so they can get a blood test from you.

  5. I’m so sorry to hear that! I hope you feel better soon. I know how you feel with the lack of sleep in hospitals. Every time you think you can nod off, boom! The lights come on and a nurse barrels in. Hang in there! ~Aleen

    1. Thank you. Right? It’s insane when all you want to do is rest and not think of anything else.

  6. My goodness, feel better soon! I dropped back to a couple of your last week’s posts. Have a fantastic new week. Hopefully not in the hospital. <3

    1. Thank you!

  7. Oh Jackie! You’re in the hospital? How are you feeling now? Hopefully better… that does not sound fun at all. :/ Get as much rest (and reading!) as you can! I loved Erica O’Rourke’s Dissonance series.

    Have a wonderful week!

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

    1. I’m feel much better now Alyssa. Thank you.

  8. So sorry you aren’t feeling well. And no, hospitals are not a restful place. Hoping you get home soon:)

    My Sunday Post

    1. No they never are. Makes me feel more stressed than I’d like. Thank you.

  9. Sorry to hear about your hospital stay – I hope that you are better soon and that it’s nothing serious.

    Hope you have a better week this week!

    1. Thank you.

  10. Oh no! Being in hospital is the worst, the absolutely worst. I hope your health gets better soon – at least you know you’re in good hands being surrounded by doctors and nurses!

    1. It is and thank you.

  11. Oh my gosh, Jackie! I hope you’re feeling better! That’s really crappy ):
    I hope you get lots of rest and lots of time to read and relax, too! And I see you re-read Six of Crows! I assume in anticipation to read Crooked Kingdoms?!? I hope you love! I thought it was amazing haha.

    1. Thanks Cyn. It’s actually pretty hard to get lots of rest when you don’t want to miss more days at work. Ahaha yup it’s definitely for Crooked Kingdom. I tried reading the first chapter of Crooked Kingdom, but for some reason I couldn’t remember any of the plot or characters. Yay! Glad to hear you enjoyed it.
