Found rarely in humans, and never in a duck. We grew up quoting that line...it's from a Looney Tunes show.
I am evidently a duck. I want Dakin to be fully over this cold and back to his old self. BUT:
Fact: It takes people a while to get over being sick
Fact: Dakin has a neuromuscular disease with major respiratory involvement
Fact: It's a little harder for those with the aforementioned disease to recover as quickly.
SO: hurry up and wait. But I hate waiting.
ANYWAY. For your reading pleasure, a Conversations with Dakin piece:
Dakin: (Upon overhearing me say that night nurse Denise might need to suction him when he got in bed) No eeuh (that is Dakinese for suction)! No eeuh Dakin! No eeuh Daddy. No eeuh Mommy. No eeuh Denise. No eeuh car game. No eeuh car.
He agreed to let me suction his light stick, but then reneged.
