home sick

oh i'm home wrapped up with my hazelnut and I'm sick. Had a glorious weekend in San Francisco and woke up today feeling meh. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks: the aches, the chills, the headache, the cough! God willling it isn't swine flu. If anyone knows how I can try not to get E and the girls sick, let me know.

drink emergen C and wash your hands a lot!

um. also. your cat is amazingly adorable- I just found your blog the other day so I read back awhile- soo incredible she was related to the other cat you had!!

I'm going to have to do a post on bloggers cats because I'm away from mine and ya'lls are everywhere!

Hope you feel better soon!

Foods full of zinc help boost the immune system by making white blood cells - you can also get it in 50mg tablets but take it with food. :-) Make sure they're hydrated, too. Colds and flu love dehydrated people.

They'll likely get it a little bit regardless but keeping the immune system ready will lessen both symptoms and duration.

It's not too late for you to try some zinc, too. Get your rest and kitty snuggles! (If you have to be selfish and keep the cat in isolation with you, so be it.) Wish you a speedy recovery and a minimum of collateral sickness!

Oh gosh, everyone's been so sick. At least you have kitty to keep you company. I hope you feel better soon - you might want to contact a doctor just to be safe :)
