I Think I Have Bronchitis

October 30th, 2013 at 09:26 pm

I have a doctor's appointment for tomorrow to find out if that is what it is. It could just be a sinus infection gone really wrong. Hopefully it has not gone into walking pneumonia.

I wrote a really cranky post this morning, but deleted it. It was mostly about giant ads being obtrusive on websites *cough* SA *cough* lately. And also a top ten reasons why I hate top ten articles or lists in general. Yes, the irony of that is not lost on me.

There is not too much going on in the financial area for me. Spent $53 on prescriptions on Monday and $41 on takeaway.

We are force nursing one of the rabbit kits which takes up a lot of time. Basically you hold the doe rabbit confined and put the kit on her to nurse. He was not thriving and was starving. He is doing better now, but is still half the size of his siblings. I think he will do okay now that he has learned how to nurse.

I think the sucking reflex was not very strong in him, but that has improved. We are doing it twice a day and will likely do so for another week. He is starting to fill out and is gaining strength. He was kind of grey when we found him on day 3 and 1/4 the size of his siblings, but now is a healthy pink and white and his fur has started to get shiny. I've weighed him a couple times to make sure he is gaining. He is. His legs finally started filling out. Now I think he is going to make it.

We tried to bottle feed so we could monitor intake and because Piper really doesn't like being held in place, and he would have none of it, but he is happy to nurse. He's nine days old now and I think the worst of it is behind him. It has still been very stressful for me worrying though and I've had to spend too much time out in the cold, which is making the bronchitis or whatever worse. Not much I can do about that. It takes two people, one to hold Piper and one to hold the kit in place.

Hopefully the doctor will give me some medicine tomorrow that can kick this to the curb. What I really need is cough medicine, hopefully the good stuff with hydrocodone in it, so I won't be up all night coughing my lungs up.

    PCJ, I haven't checked my email in a couple of days. Well, I skimmed it, but didn't see it. I will go check it now.

  4. LuckyRobin Says:

    Okay, I found it in my spam folder and replied. Just in case, she does need the sterling posts. Thanks.

    Oh, I hate those "10 things" lists. Supposedly they generate more traffic or whatever. I always give those articles "one star" when I see the title. Big Grin (I haven't done that in a while, but when I notice them and I am pissy I do - I think lately I have just been more completely ignoring them).

    Hope you feel better!

  6. LuckyRobin Says:

    Thanks, MM. I'm glad it is not just me. I loathe those lists. I find them repetitive and a lazy way of generating content without actually producing anything new. And lately that seems to be what all of the articles are. I mean, why do I need to know 57 ways to reduce my spending on a thing I'd never waste my money on in the first place?

    The only thing worse than the top ten, is when it is presented as a slide show.

  9. MonkeyMama Says:

    @wino - Agreed!!

    Actually, it's just putting everything into a box of "10" that annoys me. But, 57??? Ugh. In our ADD society, who would even read that long of a list? Big Grin

  10. FrugalTexan75 Says:

    Wino - I agree, slideshows are the worst - especially if you're reading it on your smartphone. Ugh.

    Ugh, bronchitis. I hope you have better luck with the cough medicine than I did last March.
