    Glad I Shot My New .45 Before Bronchitis!

    So, came down with a bout of bronchitis that lasted 3 weeks. The coughing was so bad I actually ruptured a vessel in my right eye. I now have a big hazy blotch in the center. Like a dirty lens on glasses. I can still aim and my sight is decent...but it's a pain in the butt. I was getting light flashes and lines. Worried it was a retina tear. They did a ton of tests and all's well in that regard...but bronchitis is no friggin joke!

    Wow, that must have been some cough! I had it a few months back, cough lasted a month. But I didn't rupture anything. Hope it all clears up soon!

    Look at the bright side. It could have been a testicle.

    Wow!
    Better take care for awhile.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    I hope that eye is getting better and that blood vessel has stopped leaking.

    Get some meds and get well soon.

    The coughing has been bad this winter/spring, I had 2 patients crack ribs coughing. The virus I had kicked my rear for a good 3 weeks, lay low and get better.

    Best thing I have ever found short of prescription strength meds for that kind of coughing.

    Owen, if you look at my latest novel, you might recognize the name of the protagonist.

    It's on Amazon only. But the protagonist is "John Ross." Sound familiar?
