J:Steady as he goes but not up to sniff

I spoke to the the Macmillan lung nurses today as I am still coughing.

It seems that this is caused by the fluid still in my lung which is irritating it. Therefore it won’t go away any time soon. Generally I feel fine but it makes talking difficult for more than short periods.

We got back to our DIY project today and I was able to do a couple of hours slowly and carefully. It was great to get out of a chair. But it looks like I will have to curtail my activities quite a bit to keep the coughing under control.

My weight has crept up a pound or two, but I don’t feel the fluid is rushing back. My pulse and breathing rate are OK and steady if below normal.

We’ll see what they say when I go for an X Ray on Friday.
