Summer Cold

Ugh!  The little guy I babysit had a nasty sinus cold last week and he was kind enough to share it with me.  I don't usually get colds, and when I do they're usually just an annoyance.  This sucks!!!  My head feels like it's stuffed with wet cotton, my lungs hurt from the coughing, my throat is sore, my head and neck ache, I feel like I'm constantly about to sneeze.  I'm taking albuterol, mucinex and sudifed D and occasionally some ibuprofen when it gets to hurting too much.  I feel like a lab rat.  :(  

No....there is no point to this post other than complaining.  Just felt the need to whine!!!

I'm so sorry, momma!  Summer colds are the worst, and I don't know why.  You are doing good to medicate.  Nyquil is my personal favorite for colds....the only good part of having a cold is the night-time formula....one dose and nighty-night!  I hope you feel better soon!

Thanks!  The hot weather let up and it's a cool, rainy day today and looks to be for the next day or two, which is kind of nice.  The little ones won't want me to take them to the beach or anything so I'll be able to veg more.

 Hugs!  When I am feeling bad, I usually make a Hot Toddy with a cup on hot water, a shot of wiskey, lemon, clove, cinnamon and honey.  Then I promptly fall asleep!  LOL

Feel better!

The little guy I watch is down to just a cough...and it's not breaking through in his sleep anymore, so he's feeling a lot better.  He did a lot of sleeping yesterday.  I popped a few benedryl last night and slept like the dead and I do feel better today.  Not all the way better, but I don't feel like I need to go back to bed and lock the door.
