So, to all those who care, I got the bug anyway. All my chanting, snorting natural nose spray (to rinse nasal passages and "kills bugs dead!"), and drinking that nasty Airborne and I got sick ANYWAY!!!
Thanks to all who have wished Phillip and I well. He went to the Dr. today and got something to help him sleep and suppress the coughing. He is, by far, worse than I am. He has been under the weather since last Thursday - tomorrow will be one week! I can hardly mother him cause I feel like shit too! My nose is so red, sore and chapped that I can hardly stand to touch it with a Kleenex - even the ones saturated with Aloe! I can't breathe. My ears are clogged, yet the two of them keep taking turns making that high pitched squeeky noise. I'd be surprised if I'm the only one that can hear it.
So, off to bed with hopes that tomorrow brings a healthy, new day.....keep hope alive....and I'll keep chanting...."I don't want to be sick...I don't want to be sick." Should've bought stock in Kleenex!!!!

Sunday, January 6, 2008
So the holidays are behind us and now most everyone I know has either been sick or is still sick. Laryngitis (sp?), fever, chills, aches, sneezing, runny noses, earaches, sinus pressure, coughing....Gotta love Winter. I am trying to dodge the bullet, but I can feel the constriction in my chest, the headache, the scratchy throat, the beginning of a clogged nose. Demons, GET OUT!!!
I don't want to be sick. I don't want to be sick. Maybe if I keep chanting, my body will listen.
So, it was snowing a bit at the house this morning. It's gone now and it's just dark, wet, cold and dreary. I wonder if the sun is even up there above the clouds.
A.J. asked me yesterday where we would go this summer for vacation. I told him camping would be fun, like we did the year before last. But, today, I find myself dreaming of the warm sand and clear waters of Maui. I wonder if the Hawaiians ever get sick?
Welcome Winter and all the shivering it brings. Happy 2008!
