You have the power to make good things happen.
Yes, another day of laying quietly, drinking lots of fluids, dark honey, MucinexD decongestant, cough syrup. Also, I found a bottle of “Clear Lungs” in my drawer, which I have started taking every 4 hours. Sure would like to clear this chest cough. I know this is hard on dad. I wish he would just take himself, either by his electric scooter or in his car, and get out a bit. He really gets stir crazy. So far, he is staying right here. Bill is in Tracy. When Bill takes him out for drives, it really makes him happy. I am single-minded right now and just want to stop coughing every time I move around or talk. It hurts and is exhausting. This has happened to me many times in the past. First time, since mom died over 5 years ago. But, sometimes it has lasted as long as 9 months – which I REFUSE to let happen! That is why I am trying so hard to do what Kaiser said to do. Rest! I will call them again, if it is too stubborn to go away. Hopefully, it WILL clear up soon!
