I was in decent shape before all this!

Ouch! It never rains but it pours. :( Sorry you are going through such a crappy time and I hope things get better real soon. *HUGS*

So sorry Jo. :( Any chance home insurance will cover any of the repairs? Hope you're able to find a new job soon!

Good luck getting a job, Jo. Hopefully things will start to look up once you've got your run of bad luck behind you. :handgestures-fingerscrossed:

Just took Thing 1 to the doctor. She's had a cough for about 2 weeks, but has otherwise felt fine. But this week the cough is much worse. It's so persistent that I had to pick her up from school earlier this week, she couldn't get any work done. The verdict is that it's viral and we have to wait it out. Really glad there are no signs of infection. I feel so sorry for her though. The minute the cough medicine wears off she's coughing so hard she's practically choking.

I know. :( It's kept her up nights as well. There are a couple of other awful things going around the schools that I'm desperately hoping we avoid. I think these milder winter temps make the germs more prevalent. Don't get me wrong, I hate being cold and scraping ice off the car, but I'll take that over the germs.

I do hope Thing 1 gets rid of her cough soon, I found sitting up in bed helps till you fall asleep helps.

Good tip Dug, thanks! I always forget about trying that. Her cough is better finally! Not gone, but better.

Hope she's getting better catchup . Morgan is getting there. The choking cough has lessened and she is getting sleep.

Good cough tip.... drink a hot drink... hot water even.. it calms the diaphragm and can stop the cycle... and a hot water bottle or heat pack to the diaphragm works too.... too hot here for that one.

Hugs galore to every one who is feeling frustrated.

Jo: Look on the bright side hun ... you have a brilliant new roof and a boiler that you know are in great working order for the winter. Roof is an important thing. And if it fails then youbwould be up for oodles more money. And pat yourself on the back when you take a gorgeous hot shower.

You have two BIG things out of the way money wise... glass half full mate.
