Here we go… again, yet, still? I finished a round of antibiotics strong enough to kill an army of bacteria earlier this week. I was starting to feel human again. Then a cold took hold. Ugh! Within 72 hours I’ve gone from sniffling and sneezing with a dry cough (typical cold stuff) to sounding and feeling like I’ve got bronchitis or walking pneumonia. I’m down … Continue reading Cough of death
So much for feeling better…. i waited too long to start the Prednisone and Augmentin and now i’m REALLY sick. *pout* i’m dizzy and nauseous from the insane congestion. i’m dehydrated from the nausea, so it’s a messed up vicious circle. Hot and cold compresses on my sinuses help relieve some of the dizziness, but make my head hurt more. i’m just a mess!!! Up … Continue reading Sick & Whiny

I hate having bad lungs. 😦 Back to the … Continue reading And it begins…

Daddy ran to the pharmacy for … Continue reading Exhausted….
For the last week or so I’ve had a little cough and a stuffy nose. Last night it hit full force. Asthma, exhaustion, headache, coughing up green stuff. I slept in the recliner down stairs to keep the coughing at a minimum. To say I feel terrible is an understatement. Doctor appointment tomorrow. I’ve already started antibiotics. I had a stock leftover from a previous … Continue reading Sick in Bed
