post nasal drip! sounds like an English upper class schoolboy.

Sure we can come up with some poesy on this one, Barry.

He had a post nasal drip
And she had a post natal rip.
Not happy at all
They stayed home from the ball
and......


I cannot finish it. Can anyone?

and decided to get joined at the hip!


Ok so I got the antacid medicine in liquid form and the prescription says Omeprazole which Wikipedia tells me is Prilosec. More stuff to remember to take but if it does the job I will be happy.

Well, I'm doing the nasal spray, the acid reflux stuff, the glycopyrrolate for saliva and of course the rilutek for whatever and last night I had the worst goo ball choking episode ever. It was very scary and I was feeling very weak and panicky as I tried to suction it out, all the time whooping and coughing as Beth watched. Anyway, I did finally get it out and was so relieved and shaky that I had to lay down for a while. It always seems to strike in the late afternoon or evening after I get up out of my recliner.

I sent an email to the clinic today asking for a cough assist machine and I also made a discovery this afternoon. I discovered that if I put club soda in my Waterpik instead of water it really helps to cut through the goo and helps me suction stuff out.

I hope this gets resolved cause it is boring when it is not happening and really exciting when it is!
