Getting Better. COUGH. No, Really - I'm Fine! COUGH!
So... COUGH COUGH I'm really feeling a lot better these days. COUGH COUGH COUGH. I'm dressed and showered and out of bed and I'm COUGH COUGH almost able to COUGH COUGH COUGH have a conversation without COUGH coughing! Isn't that COUGH COUGH COUGH HACK COUGH HACK HACK COUGH great? I even went to a COUGH COUGH meeting with Peanut's Speech Therapist and only got offered a COUGH COUGH cough drop 3 times! This is the first time I've ever gone through an entire prescription of Tussinex. I'm still coughing, but I refuse to spend more than 2 weeks of my life doped up like that, so I'm off the narcotic cough syrup and still sleeping upright on the couch and taking two inhalers and slowly getting better. I'm not THAT sick, I'm just sick in a way that is annoying to be around and annoying to experience, and I've been that way for 19 days. Not that I'm counting or anything. (Actually, I am. I'm totally counting so I can moan about how damn sick I am. My cough has now devolved into a totally non-productive yet HIGHLY annoying dryish hack that just won't stop. And sometimes I still cough so hard it makes me gag. C'mon - admit it... you SO want to invite me over, don't you?) And the saddest thing is that the above pretty much sums up the last several weeks of my life... weeks that I will never COUGH COUGH get back. I have been crazy bad about getting online, mostly because I've been napping instead. But I have high hopes for the next few weeks, so here's to spring and the COUGH COUGH COUGH return to some semblance of normalcy in my life!
