I had a wake up call today; and I was politely reminded by my very nice looking 38 year old Doc that I'm not 22 years old anymore. "The body can't rebound as quickly."
It started two days ago. A sudden sharp pain in the throat which made swallowing difficult and produced a gag reflex. Coughing followed. And I mean hard, violent, get whatever it is in my throat out sort of coughing. And just like my now deceased cat Fogge, I got it. But instead of a nasty little hairball, mine was a blood ball.
