Which is more annoying?

Coughing or listening to someone cough? It's definitely annoying to have but maybe more annoying to listen to.

Is it the season for coughs? I’m sure many of you are walking around with allergies, coughing, or even sick given the change of seasons. For me, it’s just an eerie reminder of what life was like 3 years ago.

What if it is the cancer gaining ground? What will we do then? We haven’t even given Tarceva a real chance to work. What if it is Tarceva related? What if the drug is irritating something in my airway? What if it’s just another cold?

We are trying not to worry about it, but that is easier said than done. Meg has never gone through this before and I know it's tough for her. I can’t always remember the specifics of whether or not it’s the same or different than 3 years ago. Anyways, let's just stop worrying about the what if's for one day. I’ve emailed my doctor. We’ll see what he wants to do…

Danny and Meg,
It is that time of season when peopel seem to get colds, coughs, etc. I am hopeful it is just a lingering cough from the change of seasons. Make sure you guys get outside everyday for a nice long walk or a light jog and enjoy the weather (soon it will be too cold!). Also, make sure you set aside a day each week to do wedding planning stuff.. maybe every wednesday, and call it "wedding Wednesday" night.

It definitely is the time of year for coughs. I had a coughing spell tonight and it just showed up unannounced and unwelcomed. At the same time, it's good that you emailed the doc. Let the professionals do the worrying and wondering -- Takes too much energy :) God bless you.

Danny & Meg,

Wow--I do remember those nights hwen Danny would cough all night and it sounded terrible and I am sure felt even worse--I agree and think talking to the Dr is the best thing-can they move the scan up earlier to see what Tarcevea is doing?

There is something (a virus or allergen)going around that is causing many folks, myself included,to cough from chest congestion. I didnt hear you cough during your visit yesterday evening. It may just take a week for the cough to subside.

Dan & Meg,
I agree with what everyone has said so far, let the doctors worry about it for now. It is easy for us to sit here and say that, but not easy for you all not to worry. We will say prayers that it is just a cold, I have one myself. I am not sure I have ever wished for a cold on someone, but that is what I will do for you!!! Have a good week and enjoy the nice September weather. One of my favorite months of the year. Thinking of you both!!
