i stayed in bed most of the day, hacking and coughing. i’m still sick with this bronchial stuff. i promised J. that if i don’t feel markedly better by tomorrow i will go see the doctor, just to make sure there isn’t an infection brewing. there was a moment of scariness this morning when my air passages were so congested that i felt like i couldn’t take in a breath. that has never happened to me before and it kind of freaked us both out. after breathing through a cloth loaded up with vapor rub things went back to just the normal dry cough.
