I have a rather serious, chest congestion, cold, or an allergy issue, or the flu, or Zika, since i have been bitten by many Florida mosquitos. Whatever it is, I am congested, have post nasal drip, lots of flame that I am choking on. In a nutshell, I am miserable.
I brig this up, because breathing is important and choking is akin to aspiration. And aspiration is the number one cause of death for LBD patients. So, I am sensitive to this issue.
Now, do not get me wrong, death does not cause me any fear of consternation. I am ready to go home and I welcome the change of address!!
But, the truth of the matter is, being in the late third quarter of a four quarter disease, death is always on my mind and always a constant possibility.
Just the same, I try to take care of myself as does my Wife. But chest congestion always results in coughing until I pass out! And that is true misery. Happily, my bed is adjustable so I can raise my head to help with the mucous. And hot tea also cuts the mucous, so I am drinking plenty of hot tea.
I have not had this in awhile. Truthfully, I do not remember the last time. But, I do know it is going to be a long night!
