Coughing and Puffing

I got a cough that refuses to go away.

4 weeks of coughing, 2 course of antibiotics, 3 different doctors, I was finally referred to a specialist. A respiratory specialist.

Doc: Married or single?
Me: Single
Doc: Do you smoke?
Me: No
Doc: Drink?
Me: No
Doc: Do drugs?
Me: No (only those prescribed by doctors ;) )

A healthy lifestyle, don’t you think? Unfortunately I’m not feeling healthy. Doc examined me a little bit more. Then he sent me to another room for more test and chest x-ray.

After what seemed to be endless waitings, I got to see Doc again. He looked at the test results, then the x-ray. Finally, he said go downstairs and pick my new friend, Mr Puffer:

Puffer will be my friend for the next 3 weeks or so, after which, Doc will decide the next course of action.

Happy puffing!
p.s. If you look carefully, you’ll see that I’m suppose to puff twice daily :)
