I thought I was getting better this past Monday, but then Monday evening I got slammed again. I got really droopy and coughed more and more. It was a deep barking cough that hurt and gave me a headache. Tuesday morning was right about a week since I started with a scratchy throat and blossomed to drainage and coughing. I knew it must be something more than just sinus.
I called my doctor’s office first thing Tuesday morning and when they heard me cough over the phone, they were very adamant about me coming in and seeing one of the nurse practitioners. They were even able to get me in within an hour. I didn’t really feel like driving thirty minutes to Topeka, but I was ready for something to give. The nurse practitioner said that I had upper respiratory virus. I was put on a z-pack and some prescription cough medicine. I have never had cough syrup that I really truly liked the flavor of. Not until this stuff. It tastes a little like honey, and it is really good! Almost too good. I want to drink the whole bottle! Not a good idea though. It does make me a little sleepy. I do want to wake now and then. 😀
It has helped some, but I am still coughing. It seems a little looser than it was, but I still cough and that is annoying. I still have two days left of the z-pack. If the cough is still persisting after that, I will call again. I can’t help but wonder if I don’t have Bronchitis. My chest doesn’t hurt when I cough like it did. So I don’t know.
Hope everyone has a good weekend. I hope to feel up to trying to get more interesting posts on. Saturday we are supposed to get some freezing rain, sleet and snow. It will be a good day to stay in and blog. Or craft. Or both. You never know.
Stay Safe and God Bless!
