Taking the doxepin in conjunction with the cough med helped. I slept better and woke, while not refreshed, feeling like I might live.
Cuz came out and took care of some things (including me). She straightened up the bed and fixed me two peaches to begin my first meal of the day. As Mother would say, my eyes were bigger than my stomach when I tried to eat a container of Silk yogurt. I got, maybe, three bites down when I had to give it up. She covered it and put it in the fridge for later.
She fixed my tea and brought me a dose of cough medicine after I agreed to take it.
When she was satisfied I’d do okay on my own, she left after feeding the Catz the second time.
I waited for a couple of hours, then ate the rest of the yogurt.
My next meal was the other burrito with Daiya cheese. I meant to add some hot sauce to it but I forgot. That’s okay. I would have probably coughed more than I already did.
The cough medicine didn’t really help that much. I think I’ll save it for bedtime. It didn’t make me sleepy but just kind of yuck. I don’t know how to explain it but it wasn’t a good feeling. I probably used half a box of tissue with all the coughing, spitting and nose blowing.
After I had my tea this evening, I ate some crackers. I’m trying to snack my way into gaining weight. This morning, I was on the shy side of 120 lubs for the first time in years. If I were trying to lose weight, that would be wonderful but I’m not. I’m trying to stop the downhill slide.
Still no word from the editor. I’m wondering now if she’s okay. I guess time will tell.
