I still am sick after 5 weeks back on Augmentin 875 for my still sinus infection and a steroid inhaler for my lungs. I am so tired of being sick! However, the alternative is not good...LOL!

You might have a sinus cyst. My last MRI randomly picked one up, then my Southern CA Kaiser neurologist casually chose to ignore mentioning those findings at my last appt as she usually does with most my results. Wish I could see my hometown one more often.
Be prepared! It may be time....^_^v

Hachi, the only cysts I have are 5 to 8 years old and full of germs! We have two other teachers down with my similar symptoms. So that makes four adults down for over a week some of us out 3 weeks. We have to see how the new teachers do they may be out a long time also.

We still have kids throwing up all over the place! Get ready folks this is going to be an ugly year!

That steroid inhaler will fix the cough flumom.   Frustrating as heck to be sick that long,  Hang in there FM and you'll be fine in a few days for good.

Sick  ..... Feeling a little better, thanks.  Not exactly party time yet, but better.  

I suppose I saved a few bucks on the flu shot and got some needed rest.   No complaints here.   Probably gained a few pounds because all i've been doing is eating everything in sight.  If i don't see another bag of Halloween candy for a year I'll be happy.

Maybe you're just sick of the candy. I'm actually coming down with something myself. I suspect it is related to our chickens that we bought as chicks 6 months ago. They poo a lot! And all over the place. It's been a lot of work -almost all from me keeping their penned in coop area clean but we all know that's for appearances only. Their germs are everywhere and you can't exactly autoclave a back yard. But we are getting 8 or 10 eggs a day. And what does my pop do yesterday? Drags me to the hotel silly (wallmart) and buys two dozen eggs. We have four dozen from our chickens! Anyways, I've got something brewing in my lungs. A (caugh) little Farmers Lung never hurt anyone.

Watch out for those Canadians. My mother is full blown kanook born and raised in Toronto. I'm very partial to Canadians. What can I say....

Happy thanksgiving GN. So what are you thankful for?

Growing up, we always went around the table and had to say what we were thankful for.

We love Canada! ...We can always blame them later. I don't eat much if any candy either, A. So the Reese's won't work for me. What does is time. Time always did the trick. Like I once said, even Advil but rarely. No worries about the cliff. The cliff and I are one.

Are curds and cottage cheese the same? I'm pretty OK with cottage cheese but "curds" sound disgusting. I guess as long as we call it something rosey like cottage cheese I'm OK. Seals belong to the Eskimos. I've had bear once. Recently. It burned my tounge like a hot pepper and kind of got me high. Did not like it. Moose a few times or more. Reminds me of eating horse meat though I don't know what that tastes like. Really. Grew up on deer from the Hollywood hills. Was gamey as they say or was that smog? As for squirrel I had it once in W Virginia. Didn't like eating bones. The beaver now, they had those all over Burbank California. Sad thing is I left town long before I ever could catch one.

I tried that with my kids. It went OK until they got old enough to master sarcasm. 

I'm thankful we didn't lose our house when my husband died.
I'm thankful my daughter didn't die from Ketoacidosis last spring.
I'm thankful my sons are healthy.

For the first time in my life, I fear not being able to care for and protect my children. 
I'm thankful to have friends who understand, and who know there is more than one possible outcome with Ebola. (that would be you guys  ;)   )


Most of all, I am thankful my children have never been hungry, hurt by war, or left alone and afraid by a disease without mercy.

I hear they're attracted to shiny things. You should have used bait.

Did someone say squirrels.......Bloody squirrels, bane of my existence. Live in really old house, surrounded by massive trees and have huge attic that they think is their delux rooftop penthouse. Please Please someone eat them !!!!!!! My war with them has raged for 10 years, Just when I think I have won...they come back...

They are so fat and lazy that they hardly ever leave the roof. Other morning two are sitting in roof gutter bathing away....I got so fed up I filled a bucket full of soapy shampoo, ran up to very top of house leaned out a roof window and poured down shampoo solution into roof gutter, hoping to make their water supply yucky. No such luck, bloody shampoo was apple and hazelnut and the furry pests loved it, they had great fun chasing the foam....talk about rubbing it in.

Please eat them, they are big and fat and are now marinated with hazel and apple.....Albert I think they would be good for your cold.

That's a good one.  You've done this before.

Hazel - lol.... thanks on the squirrel idea.  I'll keep it in mind.
