It turns out my wife does not have pneumonia. Some issue with reading the X-ray. Still, she’s coughing like crazy, though less crazy than before.
Less crazy is good, right?
I had four days of fever, chills, and other unpleasant symptoms, but I’ve recovered so that now I’m only coughing until I almost pass out, giving myself a massive headache. The doctor says it’s just a bad cold.
My youngest coughed so hard she vomited in bed. Her doctor thinks it might have something to do with asthma (she was diagnosed as pre-asthmatic, which I didn’t even know was a thing). She has medication, but it really doesn’t seem to be helping.
So we are all hacking along, doomed to live through our viral tormentors.
Damn you, common – or not so common – cold! Damn you to helllllllllllll!
