Right after I took the following pictures, I made a visit to the urgent care; those two things are in no way related, but, I feel like shit and I need some sympathy.
I've been fighting a head and chest cold for the past couple of days and, today, it must have hit crisis mode because I truly felt like I might actually suffocate to death. Even my mom was concerned, so, off to the doctor we went.
The good news is, I don't have pneumonia. The bad news is, I have a virus and will just have to ride it out, complete with the two-ton elephant currently squeezing all of the air out of my chest.
Thank God for drugs.
Anyway, the parade was blessedly short. The kids seemed to enjoy it, too.
