    Dark Days, but pretty pick! Hope it’s not H1N1!!

    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Thanks Sue and Plucky. Hard to sleep because as soon as I lay down, the coughing starts. I sure hope it’s not H1N1 too but if it is, I should have some immunity built up for the next round of flu!

    Sorry to hear you can’t sleep, Elaine! Maybe try tea/whiskey/lemon/honey? Makes you nice and warm and sleepy! Plus, it’s very soothing!

    Oh no Elaine – sorry you are feeling so rotten! The H1N1 is running rampant in my office – thank goodness I am a telecommuter and can avoid the creeping crud. A coworker who had it told me she had never felt so horrible in her life. Take care of yourself and I hope you get better soon!

    Thanks for your get-well wishes…I do feel pretty rotten, I haven’t been sick like this for ages and late last night I discovered my husband has it. I worry for him because he has emphysema.

    Oh dear Elaine–please get rested up and so sorry to hear about you and your hubby. Someone said this works but I haven’t tried it yet so don’t know if it is just an old wives tale. Peel an onion and leave it beside your bed. I had read that when the Black Plague was happening a Dr. was surprised to find one family unimpacted by it due to having onions out. Someone said they experimented with it and put a peeled onion out and sure enough the next day it was like black with all the germs—so who knows?

    Elaine, hope you and your hubby start to feel better soon. :( Mary, what an interesting story – I think I’ll try that next time we get sick!

    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    Oh, I hope you both get better so fast! Elaine, when I had bronchitis a few years ago, I would have to sleep partially upright to relieve some of the coughing…a few extra pillows might help you!

  13. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Mary, that is interesting! What can it hurt?…I will give it a try for my husband!
    Thanks again for you well-wishes! :-D

    Chicky ChaCha says:

    Before I opened my big mouth I should have checked with Snopes.com. Sure enough they said it is false but it is something that has been going around for years and years. Sorry Elaine and Ivy—I was going to try it myself. Hang in there Elaine–Chick hugs are coming your way!

    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    You know what Mary?…it still can’t hurt….who knows?! :-D

    Mary S - Sweet Chick says:

    NOOOO! Elaine, I hope you get better real soon! You have a very positive way of looking at it though; building an immunity to it the next time around! :-D Hang in there!
    Stay as compfy as you can and give that old onion a try!
    Who said Snopes always knows EVERYTHING?!
    HHHMMM?!!!

    Elaine, I am so sorry to hear that your title means what I thought it might…..Sure hope you and your hubby are able to get over this quickly and feel better soon! Wish I lived close enough to bring you chicken soup — it’s supposed to be great for whatever ails you, unless you’re a chicken! LOL Instead, I’ll send tons of Chicky get well soon wishes your way! :D

    I was out of touch over the weekend, so I just found out about your illness. :( Lots of Chicky hugs and warm wishes to you and your husband, and hopes that you will both be well soon. In the meantime, snuggle up in soft blankets, drink warm things (hot toddy anyone???), eat plenty of warm things (chicken soup, tomato soup, veggie soup…I guess any old soup will do!), keep the kleenex handy, prop up on pillows, and REST!!! BTW, I agree with Lynn about the pick, but it’s very cool ! :D
