It really stinks having a cold with a suppressed immune response...

I've been up all night, coughing every fifteen minutes. Not quite as bad (in fact nowhere near as bad) as when I got out of the hospital last March and was coughing every two seconds. Just enough to ensure that I can't sleep.

It's 5AM...I got about 90 minutes of sleep. Didn't take Ambien...I'm tired enough, that's not the issue. It's the coughing. I took some of that Mucinex (remember the guy that looks like Pauly from Rocky? He's partying in my lungs with his friends) and it worked Thursday night, but not last night.

I continue to remind myself that my immune system isn't fixed yet. I need 32 more months of treatment before it's pronounced ready to return to prime time. I just hope those bones heal quickly so I can dose reduce!!!
