I'm worried that all this coughing will tear my stitches inside. I'm feeling a little sore in my chest from the coughing. nono


I've got allergic asthma and have caught a cold, which has turned into bronchitis. I'm going in the morning to the doctor to get something for this.



I hope I can sleep tonight. smhair

Thinking of you Joy. Are you trying to cough with the pillow against your stomach like they showed in the hospital?
I have suffered with asthma all of my life and a cold always becomes bronchitis for me. Feel so bad for you. I hope that you will get some reassurance tomorrow. And something to help you start healing.
Get well soon!

They never told me to do that in the hospital, but I heard it on here a long time. I used it alot the first few weeks.

My outside stitches are nothing but red lines. It's the inside ones I worry about the most.

I pray I don't need antibiotics because I'm allergic to sulfer, penicillin, cycline, mycine, and levaquine.

Went to the doctor.
Bronchitis

Sinus infection

Was put on z-pak, hydrocodone, and afrin. Already beginning to feel better.

Feeling very drugged right now. OX

You are really one sick girl. Take it easy & let the drugs work their magic.
Feel better soon!

I'm off work today and tomorrow due to school holidays. I have a student teacher who is teaching all of my subjects except for two starting Wednesday. Next week she does one more. We are going on a long field trip on Friday to the circus. It's an hour and a half drive one way on a bus filled with 55 students, parents, and teachers. I hope they sleep going up there. I have one child I need to put up front because she gets car sick easy. Such a fun week. :(

I guess you must be out of sick days. I hope you can make it through the week w/ the help of your student teacher.
Feel better!

I'm not out of sick days... I have 48 days built up. I just hate to be out. You have to find a sub, write plans, and catch up on things when you get back. I'd rather sit in the back of the room and cough instead of worrying with all of that. I'll go tomorrow and let the student teacher and para-pro do everything.
