Last night in the middle of the night, I had a coughing spell that was so bad, I had to change clothes. I will leave that one to your imagination. Just woke up feeling like I was choking. One of the side effects (one of oh so many) of the prednisone, is a very VERY dry mouth at night (for me anyway). I can wake up and the sides of my throat are literally stuck together. That's why I sleep with my Yeti filled with ice water every night. I don't know what triggered the cough spell, but when I coughed, my throat was stuck together and my top lip, I kid you not, was stuck up above my teeth to the gums, like my lips had dried out and began to recede. What a lovely picture, I know. Anyway, I grabbed a drink and got it down before the next round of cough. The tickle down in my throat started, and away we go! 10 minutes later, I've completely wet myself (sorry), and I'm in the floor trying to crawl to the bathroom. I sleep on the other end of the house from the mister, so I'm kinda on my own down there, unless I yell for him. but I don't like waking him up unless its absolutely necessary, you know?
Yeti!! I **heart** my yeti! My oldest brother gave it to me for Christmas, and had it monogramed with my initials in big letters, and my pet-name (the one my dad branded me with at birth is "Lucy" which has nothing to do with my actual name, everybody just got a pet name, its my dad's way) on the other side. :) I love it. If you don't have a Yeti, get one! Mine will keep ice water cold all night long, and its still has ice in it when I get up.
Anyhooo- All systems are go (some systems are going too much...see above...but eh, it could be worse). Ya'll have a great week!!
