3 months after flu: excess sticky clear mucus -no blood, am only yellow phlegm, sleep: lungs dry out w/ rib aches, no fevers, some fatigue. Pneumonia?

At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
