All right. Enough of this. You people make me cry and I feel silly even having made the post because this is the 3rd major health crisis in the last 4 years and I'm not really a sympathy seeker.

Although, this time, I knew enough that I believed the outcome had a good (meaning bad) chance of being an ugly one.

A short explanation, then mods, please dump this thread.

Quads can't cough up sputum on their own, without an assist because we breathe with the diaphragm only, having no working lung and chest muscles to generate the cough.

The older we get, the harder it gets. Manual assist from trained techs, nurses and family, often is enough. Without it, you essentially drown in your phlegm.

I had a humdinger of a cold with likely pneumonia. CT scan on Monday showed no pneumonia yet, so I had a chance. The damned hospitals I had been in during Christmas week had nobody on duty trained to give "quad coughs." Now fate intervened. Either as a result of research from the Miami project or funded by money raised by the death of "Superman", Christopher Reeves.

Anyway, they developed this wonderful yet simple new machine. It is a "cough assist" machine made by Respironics. You stick this fat tube in your mouth, flip a switch. It senses your weak cough, then sucks everything out in a quick series of strong sucks, timing them with you cough. It's a magic machine. A life saver.

End of story. I'm improving fast but may still miss the game.

Let's close this damned thread. I love all you clowns. Back to football.

Umm, no. We are a family here and we love you, Skkorp. If you want this thread trashed, I'm not going to do it - you'll have to ask another mod.

I am so glad to hear that you are getting better.

I don't know if you remember from the old azprosports days but I was really critical of you starting this site. I was wrong. Thank you for the opportunity to help out with one of the best fan sites on the net.

But the most important thing is your health is improving. That is such great news. :thumbup:
