Getting Over the Flu

I'm getting over this cold or flu bug, one way or the other!

I have been coughing all day today. I did put Vicks on my chest last night and today, hoping to break up the cough. The congestion has cleared up. I have sucked on vitamin C drops,

and cough drops all day.

I have taken liquid cough sryup and liquid flu medicine. I have sat up and I have laid down and nap.

I have goggled how to stop sore throats and coughing. Honey seems to be the cure. A tablespoon of vinegar and honey kills the bacteria in a sore throat. Honey in tea helps a cough. I need to get some honey. Without honey, I figured I would try the vinegar.
I've been eating dill pickles yesterday and today, and no sore throat today!

I had some Baileys on Christmas Eve and I felt better on Christmas Day. I should have taken more last night. But for now, I've given up and I'm bringing out the big guns. A shot of whiskey.

One shot is almost down. My throat is warm and so is my belly! I'll let you know how I feel after the bottle is gone!

And I hope Caden feels better. He didn't have his birthday party today as he was feeling sick with a fever, too. I hope he gets better soon!

Drink enough whiskey so that if it doesn't cure you, you won't care. lol

I'm so sorry that you were ill, especially over Christmas. I hope you are fully recovered soon, and that your grandbaby doesn't get sick, or at least has it mildly! We were south for Christmas, so missed the storm, but heard lots about it from family in MT and friends in NE. Glad everyone came through it well.
