Yes we are still battling the head cold but mine is soooo much better, in fact this was the easiest cold I've ever had. They Hubby is still in the throws of the drainage and coughing up from his chest. That is usually me. When I first started coming down with this thing The Hubby said that we didn't have any cold medicine yet when I looked on my side of the medicine chest I found an unopened box of Umcka Care. It said it cuts the lifespan of colds down. I was on board and immediately opened and down the hatch it went. It's an herbal extract and I so sold on the benefits. In fact my doctor this morning said he has heard of it and the benefits of it working!!! I'm going to purchase another bottle or two of it and make The Hubby use it. We've also been using the Mucinex which works wonders too. Unfortunately, Snicklefritz came down with it Christmas morning along with her mother. Dang it. Also, when we went to my Daddy's for Christmas breakfast my brother is in the final states of Type A Flu (he's on the CDC list and he even had a flu shot), my niece has been sick and her momma, my SIL. None of us wanted to even get close to Daddy. Tis the season to hack, blow and sneeze I guess.
The good news is that I am almost over it and when I went to the doctor this morning to have my thyroid checked again my weight was down, slightly, even at Christmas time, and my blood pressure was normal!!!!! This is the second time it has been in the good range!!! He was very pleased and so am I.
