Tell your DH that an RN friend of mine once had pleurisy

Posted by infadmin on September 2, 2016

and she was hospitalized in her own hospital (different ward) for a few days while they got ahead of it. She said it was more painful than childbirth! She also said it gave her much greater empathy for her patients who were recovering from really painful conditions of any kind. Pain really truly can drive you batty if unaddressed. Very glad you got him to get it checked out, VERY glad it’s “only” pleurisy and not something more serious, and here’s hoping he recovers quickly.
