So, I have been down for the count for the last 4 days from bronchitis. YIKES!!! I feel like every time I cough, I'm bring up a lung!!!! For me, I've been lucky to be healthy (well all the small stuff...lol...not the big stuff like cancer) for all of my life, and so this has got me down on the couch!

I went to the doctor yesterday (who was the one who found my cancer), and his nurse said with a smile on her face, "Isn't it great to be well enough to get 'normal' illnesses?"....made my day!

Hug, Kathi

Am I suppose to say congratulations on the Bronchitis? Sheesh ... some people want congratulations for just about anything! (wink wink)

I hope you are feeling better soon and congratulations on the bronchitis.

Isn't it funny what can make us feel 'normal'.

Rest up and feel better soon.

hope you are feeling better soon! Get some of that prescription cough medicine, it always knocks it right out for me! It most certainly is wonderful that you are healthy enough to get "normal sick"!

Hi Kathi,

I do hope you get well soon from the bronchitis!
I was on antibiotics last week from some kind of cold/infection/tonsillitis or something (they never did check for strept)- thought my tonsils were going to close up the throat and that I'd cough my head off. I feel pretty normal again, as of yesterday (the zithromax took care of it w/in 3 days).

Yeah, it's all your perspective, isn't it? To the average person, bronchitis is terrible (it still is to us), but when you compare it to going into the dr. for something like cancer, well it's nothing!
Funny how a "normal" illness can make you feel "normal", lol!

Take care and get well!

I never got "normal sick" during treatment. I used to joke that I was the healthiest I'd ever been while I was being treated for cancer! Go figure!

Feel better soon. Bronchitis is no fun. I'm back to having my annual bout of it (I skipped it my chemo year!)

Me too, Alice- the throat infection/cough/tonsillitis that I had last week was the first time I've had something like that in the whole 3-1/2 yrs since my diagnosis. Other than this, I think I've had minor colds 3 times and that's it. Before treating for cancer, I used to get a slew of colds, sore throats, laryngitis, and some kind of flu bug every year. It's weird that I got "healthier" in that aspect after being diagnosed with cancer!

I mentioned this to my onc...she said, in severe cases of migraines, chemo is given as treatment...

So, yes, me, too...I was better then....

Hugs, Kathi

I'm sorry you're sick, but the nurse made an interesting observation, didn't she? I'm glad you're just "normal" sick!
