Woke up this morning to thunder and lightening with rain pouring down. Both of us have been sick with a cough, wheezing and then coughing so hard that our heads hurt. I knew that I was going to go to a doctor today if I woke up coughing, but my wife had refused to go--until this morning when she coughed up blood. Both of us took care of the animals and then headed to the nearest ambulatory care center.
So the upshot is that we both have asthmatic bronchitis, with her condition being more serious than mine. She had two treatments with nebulized albuterol and a couple of shots. We are both feeling better this evening. I have an albuterol inhaler and antibiotics. My wife has the same, along with some strong cough medicine. I hope that in a few days we will be back to feeling good again because the last week has been rough.
I am supposed to go on the boat next week. I don't know whether that will happen. For right now, I am doing the necessary daily chores and getting some rest.
I haven't been to the gym in a couple of days. But I did go riding on Wednesday and am contemplating getting back into riding, perhaps leasing a horse and doing some dressage. It's been a long time since I was a serious rider. I am older, but my muscle memory came back when I had my first lesson with the dressage instructor down the road. Time will tell about where this goes. But I have a new animal friend named Smoke.
