09:55 am - Deep breath (ow) Well, now into eleventh day of this virus. Still coughing, mouth still feels like a pair of boxing gloves and lungs not clearing. Whoop. Ee.
Doctors' appointment still a week away.
That's not for this though. That's for the pain that started in my right side two days before the cold. It started very unobtrusively. I thought I'd strained a muscle exercising, but it didn't present as muscle or bone pain as it persisted. It has incrementally increased day on day. I almost can't lie on the right now in bed, and if there's a lump under me I definitely can't.
Behind the lower right floating rib to start, it's now expanded upwards a little way. No bruise. No external signs at all but press there and it hurts inside, below the surface. Very difficult to take a deep breath without the area hurting a lot.
In three days I'll be the same age as my dad was when he died, when I was six. There's a cheerful thought :oP
