    Sorry have not been on in a week I have been in the bed with the flu as a matter of fact type A influenza is what dr. said tuesday and I have been out of it just now starting to feel a little bit better but still coughing up blood have to go have chest xray monday afternoon. I have been asleep for almost a week now and I still feel like I need to sleep. I have not ate until today, didn't feel like it. I have not smoked since last sunday lungs burn too bad so I guess I had to quit one way or another to be honest I really haven't even wanted one. oh well hope everyone else is alright.

    Wow, that is rough...hope you feel better soon. You know that putting vicks on the bottom of your feet will really help with the cough...make sure you wear socks and slippers though, and socks to bed.
    Turnip is an excellent lung healer. Eat it cooked or raw...or you can cut it into peices and put it in a jar covered with brown sugar/leave it on the counter overnight. It will become a syrup by the next day, strain and put syrup in the fridge. Better than any cough meds you can buy

    Sorry to hear that you are unwell.
    Take very good care of yourself. Try to eat healthy stuff.

    If you haven't smoked in a week, how 'bout making that "never again"? [​IMG] That'll keep you on this planet longer!

I just hate all this stupid coughing and spitting, my dr. thinks I might have pneumonia (I can't spell [​IMG] ) my temp tuesday was drumroll now 105 and with Ibuprophen it went down to 102 I still feel like I am in a daze or somthing like I am foggy headed like not enough o2 is making it to my brain or somthing and I feel like I have been running for miles just to be setting in a chair. dh and dd's had to fend for theirselves this week oh momma was out of commission still am to some extent.

    Woo, I am sorry you are sick! Do you think you need a breathing treatment? I have been sick since the middle of Jan. and I finally went to the ER the other morning. They gave me three breathing treatments and some streoids in an iv, I felt sooo much better! I am still taking meds now, but I don't feel like I am going to die anymore!! I hope the x-rays go well! Mine is acute bronchitis:( not fun! I hope you feel better soon!!![​IMG]

    have to take another bout of antibiotics it is a slight case of pneumonia like we thought, and it has been so beautiful here today, I just wish this cough would leave. I really do feel 100% better would feel even better if the cough would leave. I am so tired of hacking this junk up, and tired of everything tasting like blood
