Giving Thanks and HTS

Well, in keeping with my tradition of 30 days of thanks during the month of November, I shall start on day 2.  However, this year, I'm going to keep it simple and do a picture of what I'm thankful for.

My first 2 days involve this guy:

My hubby :)

Day 1:  I'm thankful for Date Nights.  Even after 7 years of marriage, we still have date nights and get dressed up to go eat and or do something just the two of us.  <3

Day 2:  I'm thankful for football days with my hubby.  Like today, we ran some errands in the morning then spent the rest of the day in front of the TV watching college football and eating junk food :)


Also today, as I set out to do...I started my Hypertonic Saline (HTS)!!! Woohoo!

A little excited...moments before the coughing began

Man, this stuff is STRONG!!! Feels like I'm breathing in the ocean.  A few deep inhales led me to coughing.  I won't lie, I couldn't keep my mouth on the mouthpiece the entire time...I had to take a break because it was just too potent.  I meant to see how long it took for a treatment, but I forgot...will do that tomorrow.  Unfortunately, it is not as fast as my Cayston :(

I'm using the e-Rapid which is a handset that is supposed to make the treatment time a bit shorter then the standard treatment which can take around 30 minutes.  Perhaps that it why it felt so strong...I don't remember my trial being that powerful.  It was definitely salty but not to this extent.  I did notice the back of my throat felt a little funky towards the end of treatment and right afterwards...kind of irritated.  But, its gone now.

I did cough during the treatment but I think thats because of the overwhelming taste (if that's the right word).   I haven't coughed any more since the treatment so we'll see how I do overnight.  I tried some huffing exercises to help loosen things up and cough, but not much results.

I'm supposed to do the treatment twice a day, but I'm going to do one for the first few days so I get accustomed to it.  I make my own rules :)
