I went to the doctor yesterday and all I have is a head cold. The drainage is making me cough and he gave me some heavy duty cough medicine so I slept good all night. Hubby took MIL to the doctor as well and they did an x-ray and found she has fluid on the outside of her lungs, not in her lungs so that was a revelations. She got symbicort and we have to administer that. I am so ready to feel better. This is one of the worst head colds I've had in a long time so another week and its gone, I hope. Thanks All for wishing me well.
MIL is still in bed and I treasure this time, knowing that when she gets up, it will be none stop.

    This is the year, it seems. My DH was sicker than he's ever been... in bed for three days. Our family was still here for Christmas, and our 5 year old grandson said "this might be his last days!!!" Wonder where he got that phrase. DH got up from bed before they left just so grandson could see him walking!! You get gray hair and people think only death comes next!

    We know different, don't we! I saw you're online this morning, so hope you're feeling better.

    I hear you.....my head is going to explode and I can't breathe. Just walking BY my treadmill makes me cough!!! I ended up sleeping on the couch so I could stay upright. If I lay flat, I just cough and keep everyone up!!!!

    Feel Better!!!!!!

    I wonder if fluid "outside" the lungs is old-fashioned pleurisy? I don't think the term is used anymore, but you sometimes find it in old books and newspapers...
