Yes, I'm celebrating!!! I made it through an entire day with only one coughing fit. I consider that to be "cured"--horray!
In case anyone's wondering what kept this asthmatic down for nearly a month, the baddie is called Metapneumovirus (meta-numo-virus). Yup, it's a lower respiratory infection that can send asthmatics and children to ICU. I wasn't quite that bad, but 3 days in the hospital is enough for anyone to go a little batty.
Speaking of batty, I must be crazy to be playing so much solitaire on my PC. It stimulates my brain matter, but doesn't get anything productive actually accomplished. Hmmmmph.
