Distress Call

Dragging myself out of a slough of misery to report that I've had a bad cold for 3 days straight, gone through 2 bottles of DayQuil and 1 giant box of tissues, and there's no end in sight. Can't breathe, can't sleep, can't swallow, can barely move. And to give it that extra drama, The Man is sick, too, but the kids aren't.

Did I mention we're getting MORE snow tomorrow?

OK, back to your regularly scheduled lives.

sorry you're not feeling well. I just fought off something...did pretty good too. Used Zicam, saltwater gargle & lemon water gargles.

I hope you're feeling better soon.

Colds stink. They really are truly miserable, but no one gives you credit for it because, "it's JUST a cold." JUST, nothing! They can knock you flat out in no time at all!

I hope you are feeling better soon!

It's true. This one snuck up on me in the night and knocked me flatter than a Mack truck could've. For all I know, this could be the flu or something; I'm no doctor. (Which is to say, I haven't seen one.)

Here's a stupid sickness anecdote for you: Wednesday evening the ear thermometer read 101.3, then it went dead. No batteries. I've got a working (digital) oral thermometer, but my nose is so stuffed up that I can't keep my mouth closed long enough to get a reading. Phooey on germs.
