Well, I 'm still sick, but it's not that bad. Both Bob and I are still coughing. It's 5 weeks for Bob and 4 weeks for me.

We are going to Texas to visit the Blairs November 6th! I can't wait to see them, but I don't want to give this to them!!!

So we got more antibiotic meds, hoping to help. Well, the Patient Education info states: "DO NOT TAKE THIS MEDICINE ON AN EMPTY STOMACH at least 1 hour or 2 hours after eating...." The next directions; "THIS MEDICINE MAY BE TAKEN WITH FOOD if it upsets your stomach..." We laughed as I popped the pill in my mouth. Bob left to school and I went to check the blogs and wait to eat my breakfast. Within 15 minutes, my tummy was churning. Oh, no! After another 15 minutes of churning I decided that my stomach was upset. So I ate, even though I didn't want to eat. I chose to eat yogurt, something easy on my tummy. It didn't work. I lost it, anyway! YUK!

I have to "TAKE 1 CAPSULE BY MOUTH TWO TIMES A DAY" So, should I use the meds or forget it? Then I thought about Elizabeth and Amelia. I decided to take the medicine last night "2 hours after eating" and I was good. This morning I ate a yogurt and I am waiting to eat more food "2 hours after eating" again.

I hope it works this morning. And this is the end of blogging about my stupid, long nasty cough! I Promise.

I had a nasty cough for 2 1/2 weeks and it isn't getting any better. I thought I would get over it before we went to Fullerton and Covina. I had to call to cancel on Friday. We didn't want anyone to get it! I stayed in the house on Saturday and I ditched after Sacrament Meeting (but I went back to church after Relief Meeting for a meeting about the Trunk 'N Treat). It was that bad.

I always say that I never get sick. I got a cold last fall/winter. And now I am sick this year. I can't say that any more.

I even went to the Doctor today. He listened my lungs and said "I think you have pneumonia." So I got two X-rays. Luckily, my lungs are clear. I got some narcotic cough suppressant and some antibiotic pills with many warnings. If you know me, I really looked long to decide if I wanted to use the meds. I read all of pages of info. Which makes me worry.

Now, there is a chance that Bryce might get a ride to Blythe Oct.17-18. If he doesn't come, we still want to see Aaron and Jamie, plus my parents. I really want to be healthy soon. So, I guess I'm going to use the meds. I such hate all the side effects and warnings. I don't trust doctors, in fact, the Dr. today didn't any questions about other meds I might using (none: but he didn't know). And he never tells the side effects or warnings....I think the Doctor should at least tell what the medicines are and why he is prescribing the medicines.

Does anyone thinks like me!?
