Silence is golden...Or not........


Mum coughed and coughed all night long and could not get words out in between coughing, her voice has now gone and her throat hurts a lot with all the coughing. Mum has had to resort to the doctor who said her larynx, bronchial tubes and pharynx are infected and have resulted in laryngitis and upper respiratory infection. Mum must take strong antibiotics and rest up especially her voice. ( not easy ) Mum cant go to work but by this morning knew that as she couldn't speak between coughing and no voice to speak with either but felt bad to let colleagues down. Mum felt bad for the doctor too because try as he might he couldn't look down mums throat without her coughing in his face. Poor doctor.

I will continue to help look after mum..

Hugs and love to all... G xxxx

GJ - we hope your Mum feels better soon - it is much better that she stays at home and keeps warm until she feels better - please force yourself to sit on her to make her rest.

We feel so badly for you Mum! Thank Cod she went to the Doc, it sounds like she really needed to. Mum, don't feel bad for calling in, we know you have probably covered many times for your coworkers. This is just karma coming around in your favor. Please rest, take your medicines AND probiotics, and Mommy says rum toddies work wonders. What a shameless lush.
