I just went and looked. It's pretty far up the sky, so nothing special. We did go down to the lake shore and watch a super moon rise a couple of years ago and that was spectacular.

Band of clouds, exactly over the spot where the moon is coming up.

Thanks for the heads up on the moon, Katie! It's still too light here now but I'll go out after dark and take a look.

Just got done cleaning out the fridge. Threw away the bits and pieces of leftovers I thought I would eat, and washed the shelves and veggie bins. Looking for a movie now and ready to relax.

Still beautiful sunshine here, but the skies will be clear when they darken. Looking forward to the Super moon;)

The probiotic will help her avoid having diarrhea caused by the antibiotic.
And it will help fend off any fungal infections (yeast, cold sore, etc.). I get them when I have prolonged high doses of anti-biotics. I take my probiotics every night before I go to bed with a small piece of toast or some cheese and a couple of crackers.

Oh yes, stops the yeasties, too. I forget that now that I have other things to worry about when I take antibiotics...

A cold sore is a virus - not a fungal condition. On another thread I posted the sure-fired easy cure for cold sores...provided that you catch them at the initial, tingly stage (doesn't work once the cold sore is developed).

When you can feel a cold sore coming on, i.e. at the first signs of the tingling stage, place an ice cube on it and leave it there until it feels numb. (About a minute or 2). It will kill the virus stone dead every time!

(Re. anti fungals - you may know that garlic is effective)

Two Vicodin are one more than my system can handle. I got so sick. Spike was here. We went back over what I had done during the day. When I mentioned the Vicodin, he realized what I was experience was a slight overdose. My system can not handle two. It is just a too high a dose for me.

So I ask Spike how long will this strange sick feeling last. He figures out what the direction say for a full day of taking them, does the math and tells me two hours at the least. He was right. I am just beginning to feel it leaving my system. What I don't understand is folks who want to commit suicide by overdosing with pills. If they have to go through what I just went through, it is a lousy way to die. And I only took two. I am supposed to take two four times a day. Time to talk to my doctor. A very scary moment for me.
Nasty stuff, Vicodin

Definitely speak to your doctor asap. If it happens again go straight to the ER

Obviously, your doctor knows best (we hope) but I wouldn't take paracetamol (acetaminophen) in combination with an opiate. I was given it in hospital and it made me more ill than the condition I was given it for!

You should never take NSAIDs on an empty stomach. If, for some reason, they have to be taken long term they are often prescribed with PPIs (eg Lansoprazole or Omeprazole) to protect the stomach.
