Thursday night I spend 6 hours throwing up every 30 minutes from a stomach bug.

smhair

Now I have very sore ribs and a need to cough every once and awhile. However, when I cough my chest hurts too bad to get the cough out completely. skull

I'm scared I might have aspirated some during the vomiting and am developing pneumonia. I've had the pneumonia shot but I don't think it will help me in this instances.

Any ideas?

By the way I have asthma.

Normal to be sore after vomiting like that.........Was it projectile vomiting?

Oh, yeah!
I took some musnix last night and some strong pain killer so I could break up the congestion and tolerate the coughing.
Pain's a little less now. Felt like I broke a rib!

Rib pain's gone now. The cough is less. I think I'm in the clear.
My father now has the virus. He's 74. It's wiped him out. My niece is beginning to complain with her stomach.

Joy,

Sorry to hear that it's making the rounds of your family. I hope you continue to improve, and that the bug goes easy on your father.

My father's still punie, but recovering. My niece is over the worse of it now. She was so pale yesterday.
We're waiting to see if it hits my mom next. She's trying her best to stay germ free.
