Life as it Comes #42 | Cough Notes

Cough Notes

A humorous podcast about life.The flu never sneaks up, like a silent cat getting closer and closer. No. Wham, bam, the flu hits you over the head and wrestles you to the ground and hog ties you to the bed for days. And when you do get up, you feel like a wrung washcloth that is dehydrated and limp.

We were also left with a cough that seemed to never depart. I thought of a great way to make money on our cough, but the boys . . . well, their enthusiasm was less than great. Some people just have a hard time seeing the big picture.  Listen and find out what happens.

Cough Notes | Episode 42 of Life as it Comes. It took 5 days for my husband to recover from the flu. When he got up, he was walking so slow I wasn't sure he was even moving. In the time it took him to get out of bed and arrive at the table, I was able to make dinner from scratch, as well as whip up a peach pie.

  1. So sorry you all had the flu! It sneaked up on me. I was on my way out of town for a meeting and thought I had food poisoning after I threw up 3 times. Ha!! Out of town, freezing in my room and then I knew I had the flu. Thankfully my fever broke by the next morning and I was all good again. Until I got back home the next afternoon when I went straight to bed. Lol

    Our flu must not be a bad as yours. Both of us were over it in 2 days. No coughing. Nothing worse then being sick for days!!

    • Thanks, Bliss. I think half our town has had one of the two flu (just learned this is one of those words that can be both singular or plural–although some times it is written flus, but that just doesn’t look right) that seems to hopping around. One being worse than the other. Glad yours was the short variety. No fun in being sick, but I always think, okay now I can’t get that again for awhile. At least most of the time!

  2. My back generally hurts like mad when I get it – that’s the way I know what it is. So yucky when you get it, ugh!
