I Give Up - I am going to the Doctor

Well, It was a rough night, hardly any sleep and my ribs are so sore from hacking. I just got off the phone with my dear friend from work and he said one of the waitresses at the local diner he frequents has had this thing FOUR times. I just cannot keep doing this, as I feel like I am getting weaker and weaker, so I will call in the morning and off to the doc I go, even though we have to drive 1 & 1/2 Hours to get there. Antibiotics are the only thing that will knock out the bronchitis and codeine cough syrup to silence the cough at night so I can get some rest. I wish I owned stock in the Kleenex Corporation (yes, I am trying to keep my sense of humor)!

That sucks Mom....hope they give you something so you can get some rest...we don't want it turning into an infection of some sort. Try sleeping a bit propped up too, that helps me with the cough...don't know if you can do that with your neck or not.

I have been and it does help, poor Dex "hit the brick wall" last night when he got home from his gig. He had a few petit mal seizures from the fever, and he was coughing so hard. I had a cough suppressent that I gave him and he finally went to sleep. This is a miserable mess for sure.

I'm glad that you both are feeling better now.
