I stopped by the Urgent Care Center this afternoon and saw a doctor. He said at this point I didn't have bronchitis or pneumonia, and recommended rest and drinking lots of fluids. He also ordered chest X-rays and after looking at them he decided to send them out to be analyzed more thoroughly.
I started out with a scratchy sore throat last week as well as a slight cough, and that wouldn't have had anything to do with the roof. All my grandchildren have been passing something around to each other - all it takes is for one of them to attend kindergarten or pre-school - and I probably caught what I have from them.
I haven't decided to fly to NY, but will look into the schedules. I absolutely won't go near any of the large airports including JFK or LaGuardia, but might consider Stewart or White Plains. Probably not. I want to drive this time because I have my heart set on visiting two of my elderly aunts in Kentucky, and it's this trip or never. I'm hoping I'll feel better in a week and can look forward to the trip.
As far as the weather conditions in the east right now, I would hope things have cleared up by the time I would get there. Downed trees would pose a big problem, but by the time I get there they should be cleared away and the power back on.
Thanks to everyone who commented on my blog today.
