I went to the doctor today for a routine physical and, I just so happened to be sick, how's that for perfect timing? I've been sick since Saturday. The first two days with a sore throat, then on Monday sneezing all day with a congested head and runny nose, followed by a day of nothing but incessant coughing...boy that was painful.
Today the coughing had subsided but I was feeling worse. The doctor did mouth swabs, listened to my chest & back, looked in my ears, nose & mouth, felt my lymph nodes for any swelling, did a full scale battery of blood tests and then she decided to just go ahead and shoot me......
with two vaccinations, one for pneumonia & the other for shingles. I have something for which there is NO CURE.
I have the Common Cold.
Jimmy had the rest of his thyroid removed on Friday and tomorrow he is right on schedule for a day of incessant coughing......OOPS! That's Not Good! Hold on to your neck Honey, so you don't break loose all those stitches.
Scott is a day behind me, and today is his incessant coughing day and another day to feel like crap.
I thought a cold was only supposed to last three days? Or is that in three days you begin to start to feel better?
