It is nasty. Today is my second day in a row of calling in sick too. After sleeping all night, I woke up, had breakfast and a shot of cough syrup, and went back to bed. Woke up 4 hours later, feeling a bit better. It feels like (knock on wood) I broke the fever.

I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. It'll knock pretty much anyone on their backside for at least a couple days. I hope anyone that has it gets better soon!

We've had way too many colds in our house this year but at least we've been spared the flu. Ron and bigdog, feel better soon!

Sorry

Hope you will feel better soon. Happy to hear you are staying home and not passing it around the office. When I try to stay home they call at noon and ask if I can't come in? Discuss the symptoms and advise me to come in to see how I feel? Why do they want to expose themselves to someone who is having the sickness already? I believe in sharing but not someone's flu.

Anyway, Constance you gave good advice. I am going to copy your recipe for next time. I hope there isn't but just in case. Thanks. Again you always have good recipes no matter what they are.

I suggest you drink heavily.
Seriously, if you still have the cough in 4 days, see a doctor. Bronchitis can lead to pnuemonia.
Now go back to bed.

Hope you guys feel better real soon.

Hey RonJohn....I tried to pm you not too long ago but your box was full. Do you happen to have Eriks addy still? The apron is missing in action and we haven't been successful in getting in touch with him. Just would like to know he's ok.

Bender unit, please get well soon! Last time I was sick I drank apple cider vinegar with either water or grape juice. It worked VERY well!!!
Take care my friend.

Good grief, the flu can be horrible, hope you're feeling better today. Grape juice or grape seed extract, if you can't handle the sugar, works wonders if your lungs are congested. I have chronic bronchitis and this stuff has kept my lungs clear for years. Very high in anti-oxidants according to my Dr.
Bless you all, this forum has the nicest people I've ever come across on-line.
