Literally, exactly, and in any other way you can think of, PRECISELY, one year ago today, everything started to go downhill for Bridget.
AND WOULDN'T YOU KNOW, guess who has a pretty bad cough today? There are some differences though.
1) Anyone who says she has pneumonia will get a thunk on the head and an out loud feedback of IDIOT.
2) We know what she has and we have her on a preventative regimen of meds that work.
3) I have my own meds to help when I hear her cough.
4) We have a pulse oximeter that tells us that while her cough sounds crappy, she's moving all that stuff out of her lungs and we don't need to worry.
It's hard not to look back to a year ago and think, "wow! I was really at the weight I wanted to be. all those cute clothes I bought don't fit and I can't wear yoga pants everywhere" and "ugh, what a year of coughing and hospitalization and why is so easy to gain weight and so hard to lose it?!"
It's nice to tick off the one year anniversary of the beginning of shitdom. I think the first year is the hardest and we know so much more now. Also, knowing now of her mold allergies, I'm wondering if there is some sort of annual mold something or another that happens the first week of April in Charlotte.
