Yesterday was a better day for me; finally my chest was not as congested as it has been since last Sunday.
I made the mistake of not sitting up to sleep on Sunday and Monday night which resulted in my chest totally filling up.
As it is extremely difficult for me to cough up anything, my chest became ripped to shreds by my desperate and prolonged coughing.
It was a pleasure not to spend the day coughing yesterday; very nice indeed, the other nice thing was that I felt like eating yesterday.
Have been feeling nauseous all week and only was able to eat lentil soup, which is never a problem for me to eat.
On Friday I also could eat bread and marmite which was very nice, real comfort food, certainly for me, bread and marmite is easy to eat.
Last night Richie made fresh pasta which he served very simply with finely chopped garlic, leek and grated parmesan cheese with olive oil.
For the very first time this week I ate with an appetite and without feeling nauseous, which was a good feeling.
I even had an extra spoonful of pasta and after dinner I asked for a couple of strands of candied mango with chilli which was a delicious treat for me last night.
Looking forward to getting better bit by bit and day by day, I know that it may take as much as two months for me to recover fully.
Richie has just gone out with the dogs to the park, much to their delight; I look forward to their return and tales of the dog’s happy games together.
