I have not been posting much lately for two reasons. First, with two active children I have my hands full. Second, I have had this awful cold for the past several weeks and have not been able to get rid of it. It saps all my strength and I barely have any energy left to get through the day. It all started with a sore throat that quickly became an upper respiratory infection. So I went to the doctor and he gave me some antibiotic to clear up the infection. It seemed to work, but then the cold went to my chest. While my head felt better I was now coughing so much even overnight that neither my husband or I got much rest. So I went back to the doctor who told me to take Mucinex but also prescribed some potent but ugly tasting stuff that had codeine in it. It worked like a charm and both my husband and I got our needed rest. The bad part is that it bound me up like I hand not been in years so I had my husband give me an enema. It was not a Fleet, but a two quarts of warm soapy water. It worked great, but it was so many days since I had gone he suggested a second one. There was no argument from me and it was soon apparent that it wasn't a bad suggestion. I'm now feeling much better and the family is happy again, too.
