    haha, i really feel like i should drag my butt over to your house! i did however, manage to make my own chicken noodle soup last night. i dunno if it tastes good to anyone who can smell, but i thought it was good. it took me forevercuz it was like, chop this, run to blow nose, wash hands, run to blow nose, wash hands, chop that, sneeze, run to blow nose....

    you get the point haha. its really pathetic. i hope my children inherit my dh's ability to not get sick. or at least that they do not inherit my whiney- baby-ness.

    I dunno if it will help, but last couple times I was sick I figured out that plain old Ibuprofen or Aleve works better to stop the airway stuffiness/inflammation/can't-breathe-iness better than Stupidafed or anything else.

    BIG cups of hot water with lemon, honey, and a TBSP of brandy don't hurt, either.

    Quote:she's right about the brandy concoction!
    my DH's grandma always melted peppermint candies and added brandy or whiskey then down the hatch. cleared just about anything!

    just watch the alcohol levels with the meds, be careful!


    oh, yeah, did i say FLUIDS yet????[​IMG] my aunt is a nurse and ALWAYS tells us that. she's right though!

    I was going to suggest the old Jack Daniels trick, when all else fails, take a swig of Jack Daniels it will burn everything out of your throat and if you drink enough of it, you won't CARE if you are sick or not! [​IMG] Just do be careful if you are taking meds too, we don't want to have to call out the coroner!

    If I was closer to ya, I would make my homemade chicken soup. It is the best thing and will cure you! Makes you feel really good and warm and toasty inside! But since I cannot here's a hug! [​IMG]
