1/24/2012 Texas Crud Update

The aches have subsided. That’s a good thing.

The runny nose is a thing of the past. That’s a good thing.

Everything seems to have moved to my chest,,,read that as lungs. That is not a good thing.

I’m getting winded very easily and no matter how hard I cough I can’t get anything up. This is not a good thing.

I am susceptible to pneumonia having had it twice already. This is really not a good thing.

Do you remember my last bout with pneumonia a couple of years ago? Read about it HERE. (to get the whole story click on newer post once)

I had to do laundry today. There was no putting it off any longer and that is just simply a job that is better off not done by Bob. When it comes to laundry Bob is colorblind. Bob must also be suddenly illiterate because the man obviously can’t read a care label. No, I’ve learned, I do the laundry in this household. Sick or not.

I’m having difficulty breathing after walking even short distances which is reminiscent of my last bout. Ironically, its very humid here right now but I know not to blame it on that now.

Toni and Bunky were in the Friendship Hall when I went to check mail and like hovering mothers I was felt for fever (yes, I have a low grade one and don’t even want to think about my core temperature) and was told all about the benefits of a pneumonia shot. Oh yeah, like THAT’S gonna happen!

I had to promise that if I did not feel better by tomorrow that I would go to the doctor. Yeah, ok.

On to other things….

Mucinex works well for me in getting the lung "stuff" loosened up and coughed up. Ask the pharmacist which variety is the best for your symptoms.

Hope you feel better soon!
