I. Hurt. So. Badly.

I’ve had the worst coughing spells I’ve ever had in my life over the last 24 hours. It’s like my entire body is retching in coughing.

I’ve pulled muscles I never knew I had in my stomach and back. And then I keep trying to breathe super shallow so I don’t cough again, but that doesn’t really work so then I cough again and the pain just jolts through my body.

It’s like I’ve been punched in the stomach twenty times and my insides have been stretched around the block and back.

I can hear Noah coughing from his room too, but it’s not as strong or as deep as my cough. I’ve vomitted countless times, but it’s more of a spasm vomit from the coughing.

Thank god for IV fluids…I haven’t eaten or drank anything in 24 hours, my body doesn’t want to taken anything in…

I had a mild fever too, at least that’s broken now…

About hopeforanswers

Some kind of rare immune deficiency, yet to be determined. A lifetime of infections without an elevated white cell blood or fever. Very grateful to be alive, very thankful for the friends who’ve supported me and for access to literally millions of dollars worth of medical care. I’m not the bubble child, I’m somewhere in between.
