I did not have much sleep because of the constant coughing. I kept moving from the lazy-boy to the sofa in the family room, then to the sofa in the front room, back to the bed trying to get some rest without much luck. I even tried standing up against the kitchen counter hoping the coughing would subside while closing my eyes to get a few minutes of sleep - it did not work! It was so frustrating and draining from the lack of sleep and the exhaustion from coughing. After I finally got well, but then my husband started his coughing. I am pleased to report that we are currently enjoying sort-of good health.
We had heavy rain over the weekend and the temperature was in the upper 30s. I think we have enough snow and winter weather. I am ready for spring but not the typical hot summer days in St. Louis.
(I sure hope no one will try to steal our St. Francis statue because of the new Pope Francis.)
