Lung Infection

Usually, when I get a cold, I'm mildly sick for a day or so, and I spread the wealth to anyone I know. This time was different.

I got a cold and was miserable for a couple of days. I gave it to the Mother Unit, who ended up having to to urgent care, where they diagnosed her bronchitis. I laid low so I wouldn't give this to anyone else, and actually felt okay…until yesterday and this morning. I developed this dry cough that would not stop, and my chest and back were killing me. I figured it may be wise go to to the doc and get some cough syrup or something. So I went to Dr. Krisberg and saw one of his nurse practitioners, who told me that I was still running a low-grade fever and was on the verge of bronchitis. She gave me a Z-Pack and phenergin/codeine cough syrup. I am to keep this regimen of one Z-pack pill a day, and 1 to 2 teaspoons of the syrup every four to six hours, as needed.

She advised that, as along as I'm running this fever, I should avoid others. The only person I am around is Mother Unit, who is lucky to have already fallen to my skank, so I guess all will be well. Of course, there is the chance that if you interact with me on Teh Intarwebz, you might get a computer virus. Hehehehehh
