To the Tune of "Oh What a Night"
I coughed all night.
Hacking, gagging I was up ‘til 3
What very lousy night for me
‘cause I was coughing hard all night.
I coughed all night
You know I did all my inhalers first
But all that did was give a short-term burst
I’m still wheezing; what a night.
Oh I got a funny feeling when I breathed
Deeply from below.
I prayed this feeling would just end so soon.
Getting sweaty trying not to puke
I hope to God that this is just a fluke
And maybe I’ll be alright.
I felt a popping and a gurg’ling inside me
Hemoptysis is what’s probably going on in me.
I’ve coughed all night.
I, too, was diagnosed with CF as a baby. It's good to come across other CF writers!
(Pardon me while I run pull my nebulizers off the stove where they're boiling...)
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate a little CF humor after what has been a difficult month for me. Thanks!
