Friday Updates

I'm not sure if it's the change in weather or just what, but my coughing spells have been happening more often and more intense. Although I don't feel fatigued yet, I find myself sleeping every afternoon for no apparent reason. I think it must just be a side effect.

I'm up writing this blog right now because I'm feeling too nauseous to lay down. Once all the side effects show up, I'll be able to manage them with breathing, or meds or a cold rag on my head (my mom always did that...I think it works for everything).

Rick has been feeling great this week. I'm so happy about that. I feel like I have my old Ricky back. Let's hope he stays that way. Quality of Life is so important :)

I'm going to go lie back down again. Hope I'm feeling better by morning.

Dreaming Big,

I spent some time at Mom & Dad's house with them last night. I crawled in bed with Mom and was reminded that their new bed is a life saver for her. Her head was raised to a nearly sitting position and she was still coughing a little bit. I can't imagine her life without that bed. Thank you again to everyone who donated to the "Dream Big Mattress Fund!" Your gift keeps giving and giving and giving....
