You know the cough that ET had? The one he passed to Munchkin? The one that gave her pneumonia? And brought 3 medications into my life for 5 days? Yeah, that one.
Well, now it has hold of me. And this darn sucker just won't let go! I have been hacking and coughing for 6 days. To say my throat is sore would be a gross understatement. I cannot remember a time in my life that drinking water burned my throat. But now, everytime, it does.
Hubby said, "Just stop drinking water."
Really?! Did you forget about the part where I am the sole source of nutrition for your young daughter? Cause I am and that requires liquids.
So hubby says, "Why don't you just take some cough medicine?"
Really?! See reason above...except replace need liquids with cannot take certain medicines--you know, like the ones that will actually make me feel better!
So I sit and cough and wish for hubby's immune system. (He coughed for 2 days and is pretty much done!)
