Well I'm back to my old speed of slowness which is much much better than my new speed of slowness was. Apparently the new version of Firefox which was supposed to be much faster just doesn't like my computer.... so I downgraded back to my old version and all is well... after 2 days of torture and frustration. I should have learned the first time around.

Steffie is still sick though not terribly... her cough got worse so they called her in some meds a few days ago. Then last night she woke up crying with an earache. After ibuprofen and some sweet oil drops in her ear she went back to sleep and slept well. Wish I could say the same for myself.... the last two nights I have slept terribly... dreaming of suffocating... my sinuses are horrible so I can't breathe well... especially at night... and my throat has been a bit scratchy... so I guess I have what she has. But at least we don't feel horrible... not the kind of horrible that makes you want to stay in bed all day. I called her pediatrician this morning and they're calling her in an antibiotic so hopefully that will put her back in health.

My son Jordan has been sick for 2 weeks with fever, cough and general cold and flu symptoms. He says he feels better today. If he's not noticably better by Monday I'm taking him to the health department to get checked for swine flu.... that's all we need! He's pretty much kept in his room away from the rest of us... so I don't think what we have is what he has.... he feels much worse than we do.

Adrian is off work tomorrow so Steffie will get her Daddy time... I'm sure that will make her feel better :)

oh no, that isn't good! if you have these herbs, this tea is really good for sore throat and chest congestion:

licorice root
marshmallow root
hmmm, i can't remember what else i put in there...
lemon balm

the licorice is soothing on the throat. the marshmallow is for the chest congestion. the echinacea is to build up the immune system.

i will be sending healing energies your way.

much love to you my dear friend!

LaShan, I just wanted to say I'm sorry everyone's sick...I know what a stress that is on us Mom's, particularly when you feel bad too.

Plus, I'm glad you said something about the new version of Firefox, because my computers been running slow too, and I've been thinking about switching over. Thank goodness you said something.

You poor thing, even the computers sick...:(

Hang in there, and I hope everything gets better real soon.

I hope everyone is better quickly. Healing energy to all of you!

Thank you all for your healing energies... they are much appreciated :)

Thanks for the tea recipe too PJ... I guess black jelly beans and marshmallows just won't do the trick huh?lol I need to make a trip to the herb store... or better yet down to the farm... I'm sure my HP has it all in stock :)... she keeps her herb cabinet well supplied.... mine is quite bare right now.... though I do have fresh lemon balm in the garden and maybe some echinacea left as well.

Annie I wouldn't upgrade... it might work for you but it drove me nuts... the pages took forever to load and then I could barely get them to scroll.

I'm off to bed... have a great night all..

A Lil Enchanted,

Boy, oh boy, do you have your hands full!! I am so sorry that everyone's sick. I pray that the Vick's Vapor Rub Fairy comes and gets you all better soon!

PJ said...

it seems like there has been a internet slow down the last day or so. i have been to so many blogs today that have reported their puter running very slow yesterday. that seems kind of odd to me...hmmm

and no, jelly beans and marshmallows aren't going to cut!

Man I remember those days. It's rough for a mom (and dad). Hope they get better soon. Cough is connected to swine flu.

Sherri @ Luv a Bargain said...

I'm sending some healing thoughts your way too. Hope everyone is feeling much better soon.

That sounds terrible, a house full of sick people.

2 weeks is a long time to have a fever. I hope he gets better very soon. I will be sending a lot of healing thoughts.

As I'm writing this, I hear my 4yr old upstairs in bed coughing a deep cough. Oh no!

Stacie said...

I hope you all get to feeling better. I think the germies need to set up camp else where.

LaShan I too am so sorry to hear that everyone is sick including you.

I remember how very hard it is when the entire family is down and mommy is sick too.

You are always so busy taking care of everyone else that it takes forever for you to get better.

I hope things are better now and will improve through the week.

Also I have been running really really slow too. I think I have the old version but I am not positive.

I am going to check and if I did get upgraded I hope I can figure out how to get the old version back!!

Thanks for the information and I hope you all get well soon!!

Thank you all so much for your sweetness :)

Jordan is feeling much better he just has a lil lingering cough now. Steffie is still coughing too but she seems to feel fine... she taking her meds and should be tippy top in a few days.

My throat is still scratchy and I feel a bit off but it could be much worse... so I'm thankful that I don't feel too bad. I finally slept last night because I broke down and bought some Dollar General nyquil... gotta love the stuff... it knocks me right out!... but it also makes me very groggy the next morning as well... so I don't take it often.

Have a great week everyone! And thanks again for your bloggy love :)
