13 Days, barely....

Updated: Mar 14, 2022


...without breathing issues. I have had several close calls including a call back to a way I used to lose wind. I finished refueling (I no longer eat for taste, I just refuel) I burped and then I couldn't breathe. But I was standing next to my cough assist so I turned it on and forced air down my throat and cleared it before I started whooping for air. So that doesn't count and my streak has reached 13 days. I also had several close calls but that one was the worst. And I know several of you worry if I don't post something, so here you go. Though my left hand is spasming as I type, I can still force it to hit the keys with just a few mistakes.


In other news I have Tim Storey over here playing Cribbage and he is kicking my ass so far. We took a time out to watch the Iowa vs. Indiana Big Ten tournament game. But now back to Cribbage and confirmation I am still on the right side of the dirt looking up!

Oh, Dear Russ, who I only know through family (Jimo, David), I enjoyed a chuckle when I read your post, particularly this line, "I've had several close calls including a call back to a way I used to lose wind." As a semantic and syntactic Nazi, I'm going to suggest the use of the word "air" VS "wind". I thought you were having a farting trauma. 🤣

Vivian,


Fair enough. I felt no air was played out but it is the most accurate way to describe what is happening. I will use no air in the future while praying I will not need to talk about it again.
