Wow. No fun at all. I aspirated some soda in June 2007 and missed a former student's high school graduation, the pneumonia developed so fast.
I was lying in bed Thursday evening b/c I didn't feel well. Couldn't eat dinner, so was drinking ginger ale. Yes, I sat up to do it.
But I choked, and some of the soda ended up in my lungs.
The very next morning (maybe 12 to 14 hours later), I could hardly breathe, stand up, anything. Very weak; I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.
Be sure not to overwork yourself. Rest even before you think you need it, b/c it will take energy just to get to the couch/sofa/bed.
The trees will do well for your hard work, but there's that saying that I'm sure you know..."No good deed goes unpunished." Sounds like that one's working on you right now.
Get well soon. ::fingers crossed::
