Well, Mommy Even Does Stupid Things

I finally went to the doctor today and yep, I have bronchitis/sinusitus....To the boot, last night around 2:00, I had the worse coughing attack through all this....After about an hour, fell back to sleep. When I woke up this morning, to my hubby thinking we all overslept, I was in such pain in my back, right behind my lung. I took something for it and it took the edge off, but after the doctor appt. today, they are sending me for a chest X-ray...Not due to the sickness, but because she thinks I either cracked, broken or fractured a rib from coughing so hard...Can you FREAKIN' believe that. It hurts to cough or take a deep breath. I had broken or cracked two ribs before, about 15 years ago when I slipped coming out of the tub....BUT FROM COUGHING...LOL! If it didn't hurt, I would laugh hysterically at myself.

Girls are still coughing and hubby is still debating running away....just for a few days...HAHA! No, he really is a great husband...He totally had taken charge this a.m. getting the girls ready for school and tonight, with dinner, bedtime, etc...He really is a husband/dad and mom all rolled into one...I have to say, I am the lucky one!!!

Oh no! HOpe you feel better.

Believe it or not, I did crack a rib (or 2) in college one time when I didn't go for medical treatment for the same type of illness. Apparently it was from the pressure and coughing. Not comfortable at all, but I never found out until after the fact.

Ouch! I can totally understand how that could happen! I hope it is better and it heals quickly..maybe it was just bruised..I'll hope!!!

Wow, that's just CRAZY! I hope you didn't break anything. You need to take your meds and rest as much as possible. I assume that since your doc thinks you may have cracked a rib (or 2 or 3) from coughing, he gave you some really good cough meds.
