Just when I thought I was totally over being sick?
I am so over it.
I truly believe Brad and I have been passing this back and forth to each other.
This time it's in my chest and I'm coughing like no tomorrow.
I finally bit the bullet and went to Urgent Care today and got a Z-pack but of course, it's not instant.
I drank Thera-Flu when I got home but when I laid down to sleep the coughing started and wouldn't stop.
Brad got hung up at work so I called my Mom and she suggested the old fashioned 'hot toddy' for a remedy.
For the record:
But, was willing to try anything.
I googled a recipe and found Dr. Pat's Hot Toddy Cold Remedy.
We happened to have a mini bottle of Beam in the house leftover from football season.
I combined it with honey, lemon and water.
Popped in the microwave for a minute.
Garnished it with a lemon slice when out.
Just read that this concoction is 206-calories.
For the record, it wasn't terrible but far from good because I despise whiskey.
But, it seems to be helping.
My throat feels better and my cough has settled down.
(by the way - I had just got in from walking the dog in 30-degree weather which is why I have a hat on inside)
We'll see where it goes from here!
I have to get better over this long holiday weekend because I travel back to California for work next week.
What are your 'get well' remedies?
I need all the advice I can get!
Sucky Friday the 13th for me!
