This morning, my temp was back up to 101, so after getting the boys out the door, I took two tylenol and slept til about 11:30. Woke up sweating like mad, which is probably good. Took a nice hot steamy shower, got dressed, and did dishes. I'm almost done with our taxes - just a few more things (like getting TurboTax for Virginia, since we have to file both states this year ) I think I'll chase out and get some of those Sudacare vapor things for the shower - and stand in the steam for an hour. Maybe then my head will un-stuff. I've been blowing my nose every 10 minutes, and trying not to cough because it feels like someone is jamming a wirebrush down my throat when I do. And my splitting headache spikes when I cough.

Unfortunately, all I can do is vapor stuff, hot liquids, and sleep - with my high blood pressure, I don't dare try most things. Last time I took a Sudafed, I nearly landed in the hospital. So I get to suffer instead.

Off to blow my nose - yet again! Someone buy stock in Kleenex - you'll make a mint right now.

I hope you feel better soon. Did the hour under the steam work at all?

Those little vapor things sure don't last long. But the steam helped a little. I'm gonna do it again tonight. I also picked up some of the cough medicine specifically for people with high blood pressure. I didn't cough nearly as much during the night, so maybe it helped.
