I convinced Mom to take a shower today! YAY! Well, actually it wasn't so much convinced as coaxed. You'd think I was asking her to participate in the Bataan death march (apologies to anyone who did or knew someone who did, it was beyond comprehension) and who knows, maybe in her mind that is what it is like. I hate this disease.
After nearly 16 years with asthma I didn't think anything could freak me out. Last night I experienced wheezing for the first time. I never realized what it sounded like so I googled it and heard an actual recording of wheezing in the chest. I am coming down with a cold thanks to someone at work who has been coughing nonstop for at least a week. Not that I'm blaming him, I'm pretty run down from caring for Mom so I'm susceptible to just about everything. I broke out the neti pot last night and the Zicam. I have the aches and my asthma is bad.
