2self. My cough is gone, save a slight tickle in my throat sometimes that dont amount to anything. My lung has scarcely any feeling in it now, and my ribs are almost well. The right side, which troubled me least, is perfectly well, but there seems to be a good-sized spot on the left side that isnt quite nornmal. There is a small swelling there still, tho' it is much less than it was last winter, and it pains me very little. In fact I only feel it during a change of weather and am sure that whatever it is, it is gradually going away. I don't know just what I weigh, for I havent been on the scale for several weeks, but I am certainly fat enough. Mrs Funk feeds me well, and I sleep fine, and haven't a single worry or care. I don't think I ever was more care-free and happy than I am here on04171
