Being sick sucks big times!

Like my Daddy said, in my short life, I've been to the vet about six or seven times already. I think, by now, I'm finally without any worms or bugs. But last Saturday, the doc said that my cough didn't sound good at all. Mommy and Daddy had to leave me at the vet for a while so they could take an x-ray of my chest.
It felt like my humans had been gone for the longest time!!!

The doc found some black stuff on one of my lungs. He sent me home with antibiotics and some advice for my humans to watch me carefully.

Since that last visit, my cough got much worse. I can barely breathe and there is this mucus congesting my throat. Besides, I really want to sleep more but this sickness is keeping me awake all night. And Mommy and Daddy don't really get much sleep either.
They are very worried about me. I really want to bring them more joy and be a healthy puppy. I'm usually pretty mellow anyways but I enjoyed my play time with Mommy and Daddy. But this lung stuff is bugging me so much that I just want to hide under the couch or in a corner.
Last night, my family and I had the worst night. My whole body was shaking from the cough and I felt like I was suffocating. Mommy was crying a lot. My humans actually got dressed at 2am because they wanted to take me to the vet. That's how scared they were. I seemed to feel a bit better and got a bit more active after they got up. So Daddy decided to stay up with me for a while and had Mommy go back to bed. I don't remember when all of us were finally able to fall asleep?! Hm.
It's almost 9am now and Mommy has fed me , walked me in the backyard and made me do my business. I think I'm gonna take another nap now. Maybe Mommy can snuggle up in bed for another hour or so, too?! She really deserves some rest!
