For those of you who know me, you know that, by nature I am a very sharing person. When I was a kid I used to share my clothes with my girlfriends. I shared my toys with my brother Dovidle, I shared ideas with my fellow teachers.

I shared.

But somethings shouldn't be shared. Like when my husband was coughing all week and I had to take him to the emergency are such bad patients. Pneumonia! In my life I never heard a cough like that.

'Honey, did you go to the doctor?'
'Honey, I think you need a doctor.'
'OK, it's your life.'

Next day.

'Honey, I think you have to go to Magen David Adom (our Red Cross).'
'I don't think so.'

The next day 11:30 at night.
'I have pains.'
'Chest. Left side.'
'Arm feel funny? Sweating?'
'OK. Let me get dressed and we'll go.'
'Magen David. Wait, I'll call and see what hospital is on duty for heart problems.'
'Heart problems?'
'I think it's muscles from your cough. But we have to check.'

PNEUMONIA...and lack of oxygen cuz he waited four days before seeing a doctor which caused his blood pressure to go wayyyyyyyyyyy down and hence the chest pains.

In the middle of all that I went to babysit sweetsie tootsie and sweetsie girl. Had to sleep over...boy do I love that...and sweetsie girl has bronchitis. COUGH COUGH COUGH.

Now my throat is sore and my chest is beginning to feel yukky and I'm starting to cough.

Those germs they should have kept to themselves. I wouldn't have minded if they didn't share. I mean it wasn't necessary. But go tell that to a sick man and a little girl.

But there is something I really want to share with you: My Favourite Muslim--Achmed the Dead Terrorist!!!

Damn funny if I do say so myself.

So between giggles and coughs let me take a moment to wish you all a sweet shabbat shalom and to tell you that I'll be back, tfu tfu tfu, next week...same time, same place. I miss you all already.

Have a great day...stay safe...and thanks for dropping in.

I want to share this information with you. Purely by accident, I came across a medicine called "Mucinex DM". It's a non-prescription expectorant/cough suppresent, and it really works!!!
Don't know if you have it in Israel, but maybe there's something comparible. The ingredients are: 1200 mg guaifenesin and 60 mg dextromethorphan HBr, extended release. Ask your pharmacist. Seriously, I will never be without it anytime I have a cold in the future.

Olive Leaf is also beneficial for fighting viruses. Vit.C, and echanacia too. And of course, Cambell's Chicken NOodle Soup!!

Hope this helps.
