Cindi- thank you for the response and ideas. Yes, I do regular breathing treatments at home. She gave me something a bit stronger than albuterol this time-don't have it in front of me and can't remember at the moment, but it is helping. I've taken Nyquil at night and it seems to help, but then I'm groggy during the day. I am feeling quite better today, the pain is all in my chest. I am still coughing, but not so deep. I have tried nasal sprays and salines in the past and I just hate them, but sometimes I will just do it to relieve the sinus pressure. I have also done netty-pot before, but this time the thought of it made me feel sick to my stomach. (Ever do a netty-pot?) I was up half the night last night, but woke up feeling ok. In fact, I pushed myself and went to the Michigan playdate with Oliver today (we did have a good time), but then when I came home, I slept 3 1/2 hrs! (so did Oliver!) Yes, I agree, laying flat is tough-we have lazyboy in our couches, so I have rotated between them and it's ok, but I am not a very good "lay around the house and watch tv person"- although I have watched every on demand episode of "what not to wear", "how do I look", "say yes to the dress", etc. I'm ready to get better!!!!! I need to! On a good note, also, Oliver ate this morning and again this evening! I think he truly was worried about me! I sat at the table to drink my tea today, and he sat at my feet and ate breakfast! So, we are on the road to recovery. It's just amazing to me that dogs could actually feel or sense our pain? Maybe i'm just crazy... I don't know, but thank you!
