Of Cough Not

When I was a kid I always got croup. Every single winter. So even as an adult I'm somewhat susceptible to respiratory distress.

Well, cold season hit my house with full force a few weeks ago and my boys both got the croup. Now I have a lingering cough. I would just rack it up to a bit of nighttime disturbance (and occasional pants wetting) and not even think much of it.

But this is The Week. The final stretch of the count down. I'm having a C-section in 2.5 days. And that cough is going to hurt like sin.

I don't think that you have to have had a C-section to appreciate the pain that coughing, sneezing, laughing can cause. After all, it's a 7 inch incision from pelvic bone to pelvic bone. And it hurts for quite a while. I wish I could say that I was sure the cough would be gone in the next couple of days, but that's hoping for too much.

I wonder if they can give me anything good in the hospital to annihilate the cough...
