For only the 2nd time in our entire 30+ years of marriage - The Oracle and I are sick at the same time with the same thing. Pretty sure it's bronchitis.
He's about 36 hours ahead of me. Normally he can just sleep for 24 or so hours and whatever he comes down with is magically - gone. Not this time. In fact in the 32 years we've been together this is only the third time that I've ever seen him this sick. Fevers, chills, coughing - poor man. He stayed home from work today - a rare occurrence I assure you. He'll be staying home again tomorrow and making his way to his doctor.
I'm going to visit my doctor tomorrow as well. With asthma you can't take chances with barking coughs like the one that developed within 2 hours today. I have ramped-up my asthma meds as prescribed by my pulmonologist whenever I feel like I'm getting sick. But I don't plan on waiting for the inevitable fever or cough-of-death before I see my physician.
In the meantime it's Airborne, Zicam, Neti Pot, Mucinex and Hot Toddies. Ugh!
