  • uh huh.

  • Yeah, so it is the end of christmas but um I just kind of wanted to recap on it because I haven't been home for about two years now, it went by so fast I just want to say, but I'm very happy to be home and it's been tough because I had pneumonia, a lot of people don't really know what pneumonia is and what it does to you.

  • There's some people that think like pneumonia is like a cold and then it'll go away in like a day, which blows my mind because that is never the case, pneumonia goes away after a week with antibiotic.

  • It takes about a couple more weeks for me to feel um energetic and stable again.

  • So I'm still coughing up stuff, I'm not contagious anymore, but I'm still coughing up the fluid that was collecting in my lungs.

  • So it's exhausting like every day and my body is tired, I'm not doing any exercise for the next couple of weeks.

  • Mona is a very common thing, um more common than you think a lot of people you can catch it, so you just have to be really careful.

  • So I bought these pills are called elderberry pills.

  • So I'm gonna start taking those because it helps your immune system for one.

  • And then I'm also going to be continuously taking a probiotic, which I ran out of them before I came but I was like I'm gonna wait till I come home because I want to get some good ones and all that stuff.

  • So now that I have them, I'm going to take those two pills, get lots of rest, drink more water I bought, I bought a Fitbit versa recently.

  • So for christmas, so I'm going to be really, really taking care of myself a little bit better, but it's not really about taking care of yourself.

  • You can still catch pneumonia like no matter what, like it doesn't matter like how good you take care of yourself, but it does help prevent it.

  • This christmas has been wonderful.

  • I got to see my family oh you can all over and then uh yeah, I'm so excited.

  • Yes, Well look at the table.

  • It looks nice, but it's not done yet.

  • All these gifts for me, christmas Eve, we usually go to my mom's side of the family.

  • My grandpa passed away a long time ago, not too long ago.

  • It was like got a couple of years ago maybe.

  • So it was like maybe the third year that he hasn't been with us the first time I went home, that was the first year that he wasn't with us.

  • So that was a little weird but time it was a little better.

  • Everybody was very happy.

  • We're listening to christmas music.

  • I love going to my grandma's, there's a lot of fun, nostalgic feelings when I go back there.

  • There's a lot of little things on the mantles and in the bedroom and the living room that I saw from my childhood and it just brought back a lot of good memories.
