Even though Free Flu vaccines are readily available, it seems that this particular virus must not have been included in the brew. While Bill & I avoid crowds as much as possible at any time of year and we are almost never sick. – This year, we met the flu and it kicked our butts. MS. Lucy has been converted into a convalescent center for old croup patients. We are “barking” more than Lil’ Snoopy on a bad day and have the usual symptoms – sore throat, congestion, cough, achy muscles and head ache. Sooooo – lots of hot Ginger tea with Raw Honey , Advil, Gargle with warm Salt Water, and load up on vitamins –especially Zinc. – It will still last for 10 to 14 days, but it won’t be anywhere close to as miserable as it would be without those good old home remedies .
It’s a lousy way to spend our “time off”, but I am so glad that it is happening now, rather than during a time when I am scheduled to teach a class!! By the time the first class begins (Jan. 14th) we should both be back to normal!! For now, it’s going to be a couple of days of just taking it easy and recovering.
