The coughing for Steven is causing problems. He woke with a sharp pain in his upper back yesterday that was painful with the cough. This morning it hurt to even breathe. Most of his day was spent in bed, although this didn't help. Nor did it help bracing it against the headboard or lying down. He has a broken blood vessel in his eye from coughing. It doesn't hurt but looks bad. He has a medication for coughing. We need to call and see if he can increase the dose even if it does bother his stomach.
