The funny thing is having at least two mothers giving me advice and I haven't even called my mom yet. :) Thanks, friends, it's nice to be mothered when sick.
A good sign is having an appetite. Means to me that my body needs ammunition to fight these buggers off so I'm going to load up on zinc, C, garlic and honey. Give the immune system the heavy guns. Pushing fluids big-time as well, to keep the casualties of the battle from clogging the avenues of fighting. Once more into the breach!
