Hope you feel better very very soon.

Keep a watch on that. It can go into something even worse. Take care.

Chrissy - November 21, 2008 - 9:14 pm

Are you feeling even better? I hope so.

Hey gang! I have bronchitis and laryngitis but am feeling better than I did a few days ago. It was really kicking my ass there for a while. Still have a raspy voice and awful cough but I don’t feel bad so it’s tolerable.

Thanks for your posts!!!
