My Mom use to say, "If you want it to rain, don't bring an umbrella." A Murphy Law sort of thing.
On another note, when I would say to my Mom something like, "Oh that never happens to me." she would say with a sweet little smirk on her face, "Never say never." And guess what? She was usually right.
So one would think I would learn.
I thought of my Mom last night. Would you believe it was just hours after I wrote on my blog that Pulsatilla always works on my cough~~~that I suddenly had a cough nothing would touch. Finally after a few doses of Pulsatilla, Vicks on the soles of my feet, the vaporizer on, and a spoonful of Robitussin, I was able to quiet down and fall asleep about 2am.
The cough was much better today, practically non existent, but a fever took over where the cough left off.
I really thought I would escape the virus that ran through our house (and hotel) over the holidays. McKenna~McKay~Grant~Tyler~Richie~even Dennis came down with it.
Karen and I were the lucky ones, or so I thought. Thankfully she's still fine!
It's been such a long time since I've experienced a fever. I had forgotten how much it takes out of a person. I actually watched three episodes of House Hunters. I had no idea it costs over $450,000. for a 500 sq foot apartment in Manhattan. There wasn't even a bedroom in that apartment. Just a Murphy Bed to pull down from a wall at night. And if that isn't crazy enough, it was on the 22 floor!
I also found a new APP for Dennis in next month's issue of Good Housekeeping that arrived today. He can check his heart rate by just placing his finger over the camera on his iPhone. Azumio's Instant Heart Rate.
If I learn anything else tomorrow, I'll let you know.
Seeing this was a bright spot in my day.
