Cough Cough

Kelly's fever is down, but not gone (99.6), Jean's is lower as well. She says she feels much better than yesterday, though still draggy.

My cold blossomed in the evening, though it is still a non-fever annoyance. Cross your fingers. I'm walking the razor's edge. I took cough medicine last night to control my coughing enough to sleep. But cough medicine dries out my sinuses, which in my case can lead to sinus infections. So during the day I take Guaifed to promote sinus drainage, flushing the bacteria before they can get a foothold (cilia-hold?).

'Twas a fun evening, running around preparing snacks and fluids for two sick women. I only got to my own dinner around 7pm. I think tonight will be easier. Well, back to work!
