Cough never really went away.

The cough has progressed from mild on Thursday, cough every hour, to now coughing every 5 minutes or more. The Puffers I took were symbicort and bricanyl. The first doctor gave me the first puffer, then 3 prednisone. I did feel a little better after a week, but then I started coughing like crazy again. The second doctor gave me 7 of the same pills, and then bricanyl. It seemed to go down after a week, but then once back at work, the cough came back strong again.

So, now I have to go to see a third doctor tomorrow. I am not looking forward to going back to the hospital, but I have to once again see why things are not progressing. The pill was to treat the inflammation, and the puffers were to open the airways (Bricanyl) and to reduce swelling of the lungs (Symbicort).  I drank herbal teas, drank orange juice to the hilt, made hot lemon ginger drinks, and nothing, works.

Some people mentioned to use a vaporizer. I seem to recall when I was young, that I did use the vaporizer, but the cough held on for a long time also. Antiboitics and cough syrup with codine used to do the trick, but now they do not like to give out antiboitics. This is understandable, as I heard tests done on animals prove a link to perhaps a worsening asthma condition when people get older. Interesting.

Well, Tomorrow, another gruelling wait and jot to the doctors office. I am coughing so much, that I do get headaches again. The side effects of the drugs, are many. Insomnia for one, and even a slight fever and other possible pains. That is usually the way drugs work. Try to kill something, but may produce something else. But, they are safe, as I used them for years. Just that I always found it took a long time to kill the cough.

I hope you all have a good night.. Till next time :) And, twitter, I got an extra 20 followers today. The best day, ever for that site.

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
