pneu·mo·nia /nʊˈmoʊnyə, -ˈmoʊniə, nyʊ-/
[noo-mohn-yuh, -moh-nee-uh, nyoo-]
–noun Pathology .
1. inflammation of the lungs with congestion.
2. an illness characterized by coughing until I see stars, spending a week throwing up despite the fact that I'm in my third trimester, and a trip to the instacare on an otherwise beautiful Sunday morning, resulting in one semi-panicked doctor, one breathing treatment, two inhalers and two different antibiotics.
I have to tell you, though. Breathing is a beautiful thing.
