Receipe for illness.............I think it's more than a cold........

Girls, I have done everything I can think of.
Mr Blossom has had two Z-packs from the doctor
Homemade chicken noodle soup with homemade noodles
Some real tender loving care from Mrs. Blossom
Hot steaming hot jet-ta tub bath
Home tea with honey
History movies
Nothing is working.
I am worried that he won't be well for the grand-kids
for Christmas eve. I have made him another doctors appointment
for Monday evening and I wish the doctor could give him and old
fashion penicillin shot. I don't think they do that anymore do they?
I felt bad yesterday and we both stayed home and just laid around.
Today I finished wrapping and washed all the serving dishes for Christmas eve.
Look for the Christmas final table-scape at Susan's for Tuesday.
Weary Blossom

Oh Blossum,

I'm so sorry he's feeling so sick. That sucks.
You can absolutely request a penicillen shot. I hope he gets one soon. Sounds like it's really needed.

Take Care and I hope your Holiday is blessed.

My husband believes in old fashioned Penicillin shots. I think it's awful they're making you wait till Monday. I have an old farm cure that has helped me in the past. I add lots and lots of garlic, with Tabasco, to my chicken soup, and that helps.

Also, as long as I'm passing out medical advice without a license, sometimes Zicam (it's over the counter) swabs or spray will help shorten a cold's duration, and lessen the symptoms. There's a whole slew of Zicam products, depending on the symptoms.

Finally, an all-round tip: when I feel achey-breaky cold/flu symptoms coming on, I take Oscillococcinum. It's sublingual, sweet-tasting little pellets under the tongue. It's made by Boiron. I've found it at heathy food stores, and also my Publix carries it. I keep a box in the pantry.

But if you are allergic to Penicillin, DON'T take it. It will cause a reaction. I swear by this.

Hi Blossom,
Thanks for visiting my post~ a new friend who shares a passion for flowers! I'm so sorry your husband doesn't feel well. One thing that my mom swears by is a teaspoon of cod liver oil! She swears by it! I'd rather die from the cold, however! :) Merry Christmas!

I am sorry that your hubby isn't well. I pray that he gets better really soon. I know when I get sick. I am really sick, too!! I have asked for a penicillin shot.
Go for it!! I hope it helps!!

Hi Blossom...what a bummer to be sick right now...there does seem to be something making the rounds ...I think Gollum had some great ideas, especially Zicam products...but they are primarily for colds & this may be something more drastic...I know it must be bad because most men won't stop until they drop...Sending you both well wishes! ;-) Bo
