I almost went to the ER tonight to beg for something for my cough. Dad thought I should try over-the-counter cough medicine for a couple of days first. It seemed like a reasonable idea--I don't really think I'm infected anymore, and he found some stuff without alcohol.
Ok, the cough medicine works, sort of. But I cannot sleep in a recliner, and the cough returns when I'm lying down. . So it appears that sleep deprivation will continue without a miracle... Prayers are extremely welcome. I'm going to get a third pillow, but I am not anticipating much sleep tonight.
