Want to know why I'm not posting? These two cartoons perfectly describe how I have been feeling the last couple days. I've had about 4 hrs sleep since Monday....every time I try to lay down, it feels like I've just ran a six minute mile. My lungs are just so congested I can't get a real breath...and I can't even get a decent cough going to clear them without it feeling like I'm tearing my rib cage out of my incision scar. I'm not complaining..HELL.....Yes I AM complaining.. again.. sheesh, I'm starting to sound like a broken record...a cranky, bitchy, whiny, pity party record.. I HATE that. But thats all I can seem to come up with lately, and since I don't want to subject you, my dear readers, to such self pitying tripe, I just won't post until I can do something worthy of your time and effort.

I couldn't take another twenty years of gasping for every breath like I have the last three days. I'd just as soon climb in the box and shut the lid if thats all I had to look forward to.

I just hope they give me the page for April to mark down the dates for the Austin Blog meet.

Sorry to hear that you're feeling bad. Know how you feel. I had walking pneumonia about 20 years ago and it was 6 months of hell. Ribs so sore you just about scream when you cough, but don't cough and you think you're going to drown.

Rest if you can and get better. We've missed your comments over at the Rott.

Hope you get to feeling better soon, have you tried or can you tolerate Humibid or Mucinex? It helps me expectorate when I get down with chest congestion where it feels like it's tearing me apart to cough. Don't let it get so bad you have be hospitalized and hurry back, you are missed.

Get well, Dekftsman! Godspeed and a full recovery. If you start bitchin', you're gonna' be fine. But I remember walking pneumonia, felt like my friggin' lungs were on fire, pantin' like a dog, heart racin'. Take care of yourself..too many folks need your input. I'm one of 'em. But for heavens sake take care of yourself!
