I think think the hacking cough has festered into something more. Nothing hurts, it's just a semi-whoop, part-aaaahhhhhhrrrrr, deep gasp hack/cough. All this with a little 'extra' something...nasty tasting stuff that I get after I cough. After consulting with a friend, an AF nurse, she concluded with 'yep, you've got something...serious' and informed me that I MUST get to the hospital ASAP. I feel a teeny guilty, because the only hospital I can go to is a little busy right now (If you watch any of the news outlets, you know which one) dealing with schrapnel wounds, burns and gunshot wounds. So, my cough might have to wait a while longer, until the GREAT folks on the hill aren't so busy (it may go on for 4 more years!!).
P and I will stop by on Friday and take those fine folks some pizzas and sodas or something.
I just hope whatever it is, P doesn't 'catch' it.
