We have all the signs of winter — the first “Hoodie” sparrow eating down below, and the first Winter Cold, sitting in the lounge chair in the living room. <sigh> My patient not only has to have eye drops seven times a day, but cough medicine, cough drops, tissues, t.v. controller and attention, 24/7.
In the wee hours of the morning, Robert’s cough woke me up. I got up, administered to him, and tried going back to bed. But my nose was running and I started to feel as though I were coming down with the bug. I took an Echinacea capsule and headed back to bed. I think that bug decided to move on because I feel fine this evening. <keeping my fingers and toes crossed and my hands washed!>
Be safe (keep those hands washed when you’ve been out among the throngs of people carrying Winter cold viruses), be well (PLEASE), and be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.
