Down For The Count

After our visit to our up North kids, we did a much slower drive “home” to South Carolina, splitting the trip into a leisurely two days.

On the ride, I began to get the sniffles, which by the second day blossomed into a full blown cough.  Not fun, I have to be very careful as I have a tendency to have colds role into pneumonia. Not to worry, I’m taking massive amounts of vitamin C and other things fed to me by Marti to kick this bug.

It’s important to be back to full health, because I’m scheduled to get my cataract surgery on Tuesday, they won’t do it if I’m still hacking.  After waiting six months to get the surgery, I don’t want to have something delay it more.  But if I’m still hacking, of course I would want the operation postponed.

Being the loving husband that I am, I have now shared the cold with my bonnie bride, so we have coughing in stereo going on in the Journey.

Just because we’re living fulltime in an RV doesn’t mean that life is perfect all the time.  You can get sick anywhere, whether it be in a house, an RV or a space ship (heaven forbid).

So we’re down for the count for a few days, but then a few days kicked back and resting is just what we need after all our running around.  :c)

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.

  3. Oh I'm so sorry to hear this. I have a weak respiratory system and everything I get goes to my lungs and becomes a cough and then bronchitis. Luckily I havent' had a bug in a long time but I can really sympathize with you both. Hot beverages seemed to help me so turn up the AC and drink up. Hope you will be feeling really chipper in a couple of days, far in advance of your surgery. I am envying your great eyesight in advance.

  4. John is on his first round of antibiotics for a cough since he was in hospital over Thanksgiving. I sure hope yours does not go into pneumonia. Johns lung DR. recommends Delsym. You might want to give it a try. Also, do you take Zinc with your Vit. C?

  7. That's too bad. I hope this doesn't affect your surgery. You probably don't need any more advice, but have you tried Mucinex for that cough?

  10. Oh no! I hope you get rid of that cough before they decide you have to wait under six weeks. I'm sure your bonnie bride would like to get rid of her cough too. Maybe next time she can be the giver and you the receiver.

  13. I hate colds luckily we rarely ever get one. Hope yours clears up fast so you can get the surgery done. Get lots of rest, that is the best thing for a cold.

  17. Rest up ... you have a few days to kick that cold in the butt and get it out of your system so that your surgery can proceed as scheduled.
