Persistent Cough

I may be allergic to California women. Everything was going fine until Tuesday when Nick and Tom bring these two good looking women from southern California into the park and we go for a short ride. The next thing I know, I am hacking up a lung. Coincidence... I think not!

It's a dry cough so severe that your ribs hurt and your throat feels like you have swallowed Drano. I have heard enough about "Valley Fever" / "Desert Lung" that I went to a doctor to have it checked out. The good news is that he does not think it is Valley Fever. The bad news is that it may be a combination of the hantavirus, pulmonary edema, and pneumonia. The only survivors to date have been RZR riders... so there's still hope.
