Maybe just a little reminder might be needed. I was just signing in and it seemed to take a couple of times to get it right. But then that seems to happen to me even while signing in every day multiple times.

Well, I am on my way to feeling much better. I once upon a time complained about that dreaded sore throat, which usually turns into the common cold. Not this time. I had a nasty cough and went to the clinic. I was told it was a cold.

It instead turned into the flu for a couple of days. Boy that really wipes one out. I slept, coughed, blew my nose a lot, and once even had a fever of 103. Theraflu works pretty well. At one time we had four-and-a-half boxes of tissues with lotion, which I am so thankful for. We now have a box and a half. That is a lot of tissues.

Then I ended up going to the clinic again and was told by the doctor I had pneumonia with a little wheezing. So heavier meds and an inhaler, plus some ibuprofen and Tylenol. And more rest and lots of liquids. Remember the vapor rub.

Our house was on the tropical side with the boiling water on the stove.

During my one of my early-on coughing fits, my husband found on the internet a home remedy that is tasty. Milk and honey helps soothes the throat and simmers the cough. Just warm it on the stove to a drinkable temperature. Tea and honey is good too.

I did have the flu shot. I can no longer say, "I never get the flu."
