I feel yucky. I had a rough night. I couldn't use the CPAP because my nose was stuffed up so that I couldn't breathe and if you open your mouth with it on, it makes you swallow air. Even just lying down to sleep was difficult and I started to feel like I was choking. I ended up spending part of my night sitting up in my armchair. It took me back to just four years ago when I slept every night in my armchair because it hurt too much to lie down. I wasn't doing too well actually sleeping in my armchair though, so I finally figured out how to prop up some pillows just the right way so that I could sleep.
I've actually decided not to teach my Bible class tomorrow. It takes a lot to get me to that decision.
Really,it's just a cold. I hope it gets over soon. I have my endoscopy scheduled for Friday. I cannot imagine threading a camera down this inflamed sore throat (even with sedation) and I think they would require me to be able to breathe through my nose.
