Sickness update

I'm still sick down here. Really, really sick.

Now I'm on my second round of antibiotics, and this new cough medicine -- well it has me whacked out. I haven't taken any of it today and won't take any more because I couldn't drive right now if I had to. *Edited to add: I just figured out it was a combination of Vicodin and Sudafed. I don't do so well on Sudafed -- never have. That explains why I felt like I did -- it's almost out of my system.

And I've still not broken this fever, or this cough. I'm surviving on juice and bananas. Friday night I made a roast and nibbled on that some this weekend. But mostly, it has been apple juice and bananas. And now I'm out of juice...

Back to the doctor tomorrow. No choice but classes on Tuesday. I hope I feel better in 24 hours. This illness is interrupting my life.

Much love,
Ginger

I know this sounds yuckie, but this is what you need to do....get some fresh raw garlic. Eat a clove of it raw. You can put it in something like cream cheese or on a gf cracker or gf bread. Do this a couple times a day. It will really loosen all that gunk up that's in your chest. I swear by this. But it has to be raw, not cooked. You will have horrid breath, but who cares! You need to be well more than you need fresh breath :)

I am beginning to think the whole world is sick...I am praying for an early spring this year so the heat will burn away all of these germs...
