After much nagging from hubby and A last night, I wound up in the ER due to shortness of breath. My allergies were really bad on Monday and Tuesday, the rest of the week my allergies bothered me but not any more than normal. On Thursday night I developed an irritating dry cough that made it difficult to sleep and started wheezing last night at work along with the cough. I have also pretty much completely lost my voice and would have severe coughing spells if I tried to speak.
At the ER, I was given a shot of steroids (never had them before and man did that hurt like hell!), two breathing treatments, and a chest x-ray. Sent home with scripts for Z-pack, an inhaler (never had one of those either), and oral steroids along with a DX of acute bronchitis.
The breathing treatments left a very nasty, filmy, taste in my mouth and I comment on it to hubby. He looks at me and says, "Well it's medicine, it's supposed to be nasty tasting that is how you know it works. It's not gonna taste like bacon you know"
Thanks to that comment I have decided to find a way to make breathing treatments a lot more palatable...I will start with bacon flavored (I mean come on, who doesn't like bacon?) and branch out to other flavors like Margarita, chocolate, and apple pie. For the kiddies I will do fruit punch, bubble gum, and cotton candy.
What do you ladies think?
