Forgive me Spark friends I still have 76 e-mails and more coming in.

Monday, December 31, 2012

I absolutely have to go to bed, DH is coughing. The Dr said in his report I have an Acute Upper respiratory track infection.
It is a virus.
He did not tell me anything in particular to do. he just left the room and the nurse said noy strep by the Dr was with another patient

I am coughing so much my ribs are really hurting. When i cough my eyes run from the pain. I have stayed out of DH way most of the day but I still hear him coughing.

I am off to bed to try to get some rest again. HUGS.

This too shall pass. I just hope it goes away and DH is just reacting to dry air.

We will see tomorrow and if need be i will be back at the Drs. if it is still this bad My Dr will be in Tomorrow.

Good night thanks for your amazing support .
Thanks for the goodies and the suggestions I have implemented them all I assure you.
Please do not think I am not going to reply. You are all flagged so I can catch up asap. Pat in Maine.

Happy New Year to all of you.

  Pat Your Health is Number One along with DH. He cannot afford to get sick with his Surgery so close. It would have to be postbone until the both of You are well. Call the Doctor and try to get some Pain Medication to so You will be more comfortable. Try to Rest, get plenty of Sleep and Force Fluids. You need to get this virus out of your system. Have DH drink a lot of Fluids too. Hopefully he won't come down with it. Hope that You will began to feel better very soon. Will be Praying for a Complete Recovery for You and DH. Everyone wants You to Get Well and Feel Good. Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Don't worry about relying, just get better! You have a lot of company, my cousin and my friend both have a virus and have had a really hard time kicking it. Fluids, vitamin C and lots of rest is about all you can do for it I think. emoticon

    Pat, put a large pot (filled with water) on the stove and let it come to a simmer. Then turn the heat down, but you still want it to stem a little. This will add humidity to the air.

There are cool mist humidifiers and they work well in a small room right beside the bed. Another idea (if your bathroom isn't too big) fill the sink with hot water so the room becomes steamy, the bath tub is good and can steam the room quite fast. Let the water run and sit for 10 minutes at least. Or until you feel you can breath easier. Good for DH too.

A nose spray is another great item to have. Saline solution bought at the drug store, it is sterile and helps keep moisture in the nasal passages.

Hope your feeling soon. Your too special not to feel good. Extra good thoughts and prayers for you. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Pat, you can skip trying to reply to all of us. It really isn't necessary. We know how busy and sick you are so just concentrate on getting well for both of you.

I hope 2013 is much healthier for you both.

    I am sorry you are having such a rough time. Ted is sick with another cold too. (It isn't that long since his last one.) Get a good night's sleep - sometimes that helps.
