For those of you who are concerned with my well-being, or those of you who are curious and wonder what kind of a fine kettle of fish I’m currently embroiled in, I must comment on my visit to the doctor last Monday, the 22nd. As you may recall, at that visit it was determined that I probably had a virus but if it didn’t clear up in 7-10 days it was probably an infection that would require antibiotics. So, here I am on day 9, hacking and coughing up some pretty interesting stuff that feels like it has a death grip in my bronchial tubes until a sufficient amount of coughing wrenches it free, allowing me to spit it out and have a good look. Now, it’s understood that I’m not an expert on material that exits a body, in any manner, but I know what I like and what I don’t. In this particular case, not only does the expelled material reek of infection, it also tastes really bad … a little like sulfur smells. Or the taste one might get from sucking on a mouthful of pennies … so I’m told.
To help remedy this, I sent my doctor an email explaining my symptoms and suggesting that a round of antibiotics may be in order. I have a particular antibiotic in mind, but didn’t want to suggest it and, therefore, appear to be a bit brazen. But, I bet I get what I had in mind.
If anyone is interested, I’ll take some photos of the chunky monkey I’m coughing up, but think a generic photo will suffice. It’s something like this …
It looks a lot like pancake batter.
Now I must stop and watch football, leaving you with this image that may cause you to reconsider your breakfast choices going forward.

Ok. Now I’m convinced that we are in some way related! Please don’t post bathroom pics, ok?
OK. No bathroom pics. Actually, that hadn’t even occurred to me until you mentioned it. Now I feel cheated that I can’t do it. Dang!
Be careful. My sister in Canada is hospitalized with a tracheotomy tube. Her throat was swollen so much that she couldn’t swallow or breathe. And you wondered why I didn’t stop by to say hello when I was in the area for Christmas. Get well cousin.
Getting better. Thanks.
