It started last Wednesday evening. And it still has me firmly in its grip. I have torn through boxes and boxes of Kleenex. Downed numerous spoonfuls of Buckley’s — yuck. And tried boosting the immune system with ColdFX and extra doses of Vitamin C and Zinc. Net result? Three days coming, three days staying, three days leaving. That was what my mother taught me about the flu many years back.
I was able to manage a few things yesterday afternoon. The congestion eased somewhat and I felt good enough to do a few things. Otherwise I have been spending the time hacking and coughing and blowing my nose. And watching HGTV. But that is just our secret.
We even cancelled our Easter dinner last night.
