have any of y'all ever coughed up a mucus plug? if so, what did it look like? did it have blood in it? i coughed up a huge ol' loogie tonight (and i rarely EVER cough up mucus, it always just moves around in my lungs!) and it had a few strains of blood in it. My xrays a few days ago said i had a few mucus plugs. I freaked out over this loogie cuz of the little bit of blood, mom said that just means it's a mucus plug. i wanna ask y'all cuz i'm scare to tell my docs about it with the fear that they would put me back in the hospital even though they just sent me home with home IV meds today.
