Here I is

I had a chance to check my e-mail during my 1st lunch bunch at work yesterday. I rarely even check e-mails these days. I saw where Heather commented on my rock post. It put a smile on my face!!!

Here is the comment:

Betty, where are you? We are missing you. It's been a week since this post... Come out, come out, wherever you are!

So to explain my absence....

Having my symptoms under control for the past 6 years....my Asthma has returned. I had 4 attacks in 2 weeks. I am on oral steroids to treat the inflammation of my bronchial tubes. The last one I was home alone and really thought I was gonna die! I keep my rescue inhaler close by now!

So I know what triggered the asthma....I got a miserable head cold!! I was so afraid I was getting the swine flu because there have been several cases at my school already. No piggy....just your usual head cold when the weather starts turning.

So after working 6:30 am - 4:45 pm everyday, I would come home...cook John dinner...clean up kitchen...then make me a cup of Theraflu. I "doctored" it up with 2 tablespoons of Tequila Gold and by 8:00 I was sound asleep and wouldn't cough until about 3 am.

Then I had to do it all over again the next day!

I am feeling SO much better today. I still have a slight cough but nothing like last week. I hope to get the asthma under control again.

Why isn't asthma spelled "ASSthma"? It can be such a pain there. I'm glad to hear you are on the mend. Please know that I will keep you tucked into my ever-faithful Good Night Prayers. Be be better soon! (<-- a little something my daughter use to say when she was a smitch and someone near and dear was feeling poorly).

You poor thing! I hope you are all better now! I have a funny story about asthma! I work in a truancy court. We have lots of kids who come in who are missing excessive days of school! Every. Single. Kid. says they have asthma. Every one. I hear it at least 30 times a day. It is crazy : )

I'm so glad I was able to put a smile on your face and invite you back to the land of the living bloggers (hmmm, sounds a bit like a horror show, doesn't it?).

Glad you're on the mend. Take care of yourself and keep getting lots of rest! You know we'll still be here when you return.
