Better now

Not well yet, but better. Thanks to for the well wishes to everyone who responded to Ailsa's post.

I went to bed about 10:30 Monday night. At 11:30 I was violently woken up. I aspirated some reflux. I rolled out of bed and violently coughed up almost half a cup of phlegm over the next five minutes, some of it scarlet with blood.

Fifteen minutes later I still had some bad coughing, but the phlegm was clear again. The nurse practitioner on night duty gave me a list of symptoms (if blood shows up again, if your short of breath or have trouble breathing, if you can't stop coughing) that if any showed up I should immediately go to the ER, otherwise just go to the doctor first thing in the morning.

I went to the doctor Tuesday morning, my primary care physician doesn't work on Tuesdays, but I got one of his associates. My lungs are clear. The doctor recommended rest and a day or two off from work. I started taking a nap at 2:00pm and didn't wake up until David jumped on me at 10:30.
