Hello dear friends here at DC. Well let me see now, so far this month I have had surgery and was off from work for a week and I am able to work for a week and on Friday the 11th I have a really bad sore throat and very stuffy head. I make it through the day and head for home. Over the weekend my stuffy head and sore throat continue to get worse and by Monday everything in my head has begun moving into my chest. Tuesday morning I am coughing so very hard and I went to my doctor and now I have full blown Bronchitis and also the Croup so now I am off from work at least until Friday. While at the Dr.'s office I got 2 shots and 3 prescriptions and yep you guessed it my Blood sugars are way high. Got Rocefin (sp?) and Decradon shots at the Dr.'s office and then the 3 prescriptions are a z-pack, medrol dose pack and a bottle of phenergran and codine cough syrup. Today I have not had any energy hardly at all and this morning I had an MRI done on my left foot so we can figure out what is going on with that. Just as the technician was finishing up the MRI scan I began coughing and that surely didn't feel good. Now I think my asthma is showing up in the mix with the bronchitis and croup as I have noticed tonight that my chest seems really tight and it is somewhat hard for me to breath normally. I am going to really watch myself closely tonight and if I don't feel a lot better in the morning I am going to call the dr back and see what he thinks. I am drinking lots of water, but now when I start that hard coughing I just about lose my breath. I am spending my nights in the recliner as I can sleep propped up and also have my vapor riser going which helps me an awful lot. Anyone out there have any other ideas on ways to ease the bronchits and croup.
