It's been a hard slough since we got back. My wheezing increased, and the cough caused a lot of pain. Evidently cold air and airport floors are not good for asthmatics. Dr. Harris put me on prednisone on Thursday last, and some of the symptoms have receeded. I go back to work tomorrow. Hoping that it will accelerate recovery, I've started today on an ultrasimple diet of brown rice, steamed vegetables, salads, broth and soy shakes. It should clean out the gunk.
It's hard to think of yourself as an athlete when coughing bends you over.
