Dear Mark, I think you are meant to stay "propped up" ....

In reply to: well its been 24 hrs

and not lie flat. If your meds are antibiotics, they normally take 2 days to kick-in - I'm sure you know this, but hopefully this means that another 24 hours will make a good difference - many like me will be crossing their fingers and praying. There is an antibiotic "drip" (intravenous feed) also, if you are not on this already.

I'm a great believer in thoughts transmitted over "airwaves", so please know that, each time you log on to keep in touch with your family, you will be receiving all of our best thoughts at the same time.

Best wishes

Dear Mark, Can you cope with laughter, or is it painful? ..

In reply to: Re: Dear Mark, I think you are meant to stay "propped up" .

As from now, I'm going to be very serious. This is because I was in the hospital yesterday, and being me, had to be very careful not to make people laugh (painfully for them). Luckily we all got by with bright smiles.

So here is a bright smile: Happy

Best regards

How are you now, Mark? ...

In reply to: well its been 24 hrs

It's a new day here, around lunchtime. We've had some heavy rain and flash floods in some areas, but today it is lovely and sunny Happy

Have you been able to get some more sleep - or did the purring keep you awake... Have your meds started to kick-in - I hope so, because it will make you feel better and get your body's defences up and running again. You are allowed to sleep, but tell them that they are not and that they have to get going!

Perhaps you can let us know when you next log in.

Regards

Glad you're doing better Mark. My hubby had *****-moan-ya (his name for it!) four times one year and it was gosh darned awful. If whatever antibiotic you are taking leaves even the slightest hint of infection make sure to ask for more. With the hubby I think that was the problem. Never got fully rid of it till they really whacked the last time!

Be careful for awhile, Mark. Each time I had that, I ended up having extreme coughing fits every time I was exposed to the cold night air. just going out to the car at night was enough to make it all seem to start all over again for an hour or so.

My father-in-law recommended something that really seemed to work very well, but I think tastes really yucky (well, to be fair, I hate the taste of the alchohol, period). A small glass of whiskey or scoth with fresh lemon juice and real honey in it. The whiskey cuts through the mucous and seems to nearly cautherize the throat. The lemon aids in cutting down the mucous also, while the honey coats and soothes the throat so that you don't cough as much or have as bad of a sore throat. A dose of honey or the honey with lemon, is good for the rough throat in general too.

The other added benefit of that is that it puts you to sleep real good. Obviously not a good idea to take that with your other meds if the doctors or pharmacists say no alcohol (and some antibiotics now don't work with some citrus fruits).

As to the sleeping situation, it helps to resign yourself to being inclined to sleep. Prop as many pillows around you as you can tolerate to make it seem like you aren't going to fall over on Oreo, and that should help make it comfortable enough to sleep.

If you start coughing enough to break ribs (that was a problem I faced each time), then wrapping a rib belt or even a wide Ace bandage around the ribs during the worst of the coughing helps.

Sounds like you are getting a lot better though, thank goodness! Just avoid that night air though when it's cool. And by that, I mean, this can go on for up to three months after you are over the main illness! Royal nuisance, but it does go away finally. Like I said in another post, when I finally had the pneumonia shot, I haven't had any problems since. They seem not to offer them in the doctor's office or clinics, but will give them if you ask usually.

Do you have a picture of the kitty cat? Happy How does Oreo like the snakes? Are they friends, or does Oreo ignore them? I'm sure you also know this, but take extra care to wash your hands thoroughly now when dealing with your snakes while you're sick. They are remarkably susceptible to illnesses and that would be a tragedy to make them sick. They're very pretty!

Diane mentioned "...coughing enough to break ribs.."

In reply to: Re: Mark, if you log in - how's you? ...

A friend of my son, who was in his late 30's, had a coughing spell and blew a small hole in his lung, requiring emergency room care. If not the tape procedure as Diane suggest, place a medium hard pillow across your ribs when you cough.

The first thing that the MD Anderson hospital gives you (no matter what age) when you check in for a lung problem is a very nice Teddy Bear doll with instructions to press it over your ribs when you cough.

A trip to one of those massage palors. Grin Any down there? Seriously, I do hope you start feeling better.

Robitussin Extra Strength Menthol Eucalyptus Cough Drops work good for me most times.
