I'm going to be rich!!!!!!!!!

Posted by   + Show Post

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?

Great idea! My youngest son used to take dozens of breathing treatments a week. He would have loved a flavor.

Man you guys have been in the ER a lot over the last few days. Are they giving away something that you aren't telling us?? Come on, fess up! LOL

Seriously Lisa, praying for you and Mark! HUGS girl

I wish they gave something away every time we went there..between A, Mark, and Roo  I would have enough frequent flyer miles to go anywhere in the world I wanted to several times over and not have to pay a cent. At one point last year we were in the ER with A alone 5x in a two week period.

LOL! Every time I see the name of this post I think that you must have had one of those emails from another country whose royalty is trying to get out with the family treasure and they need you to let them send it to you to put in your bank account. All you have to do is to give them your bank account number and they'll show you their gratitude by giving you $50,000!

Have that Tank ready Colleen, Mark is giving me "the eye"..I told him if I die it is all on him. He says if he has to he  will drive out there to pick up a tank but wants to know how soon you want it back after we borrow it. LOL

Quoting LadySaphira:

LOL funny you should mention your oxygyn..it came up in a cpnversation I was having with a friend of mine...long story short....I told the person I was talking to that if I attempted to try any type of sexual realations at this point in time I would probably have to beg you to borrow one of your tanks so I could breathe during the act.   LMAO


Quoting CoeyG:

LOL I have to use a nebulizer everyday.  I know what you mean about the taste but after awhile you don't notice it.  What I don't like is the fact that I get the shakes after and I have to use it at least twice a day.  The steroids are great for opening up your brocnials I have a corticoid steroid I have to take every evening and of course I have my regular inhaler I use four times a day...so welcome to my world...now all you need is the oxygen LOL.  


So would you be coming to get it or do I have to deliver it?
