Thanks for all the support. I'm actually healing much faster than i usually do, so fast that i'm rather astounded. I am attributing it to the fact that i down 1/2 a teaspoon of Manuka honey every time the cough comes on. Manuka honey is serious medicine. It is used for a number of different medical treatments. Locally grown raw honey is good, too, but Manuka honey is the best when it comes to fighting off bugs.
Just for the record, the other things i used are: Holy basil; colloidal silver; coltsfoot; oregano oil; olive leaf oil; vitamin D3; grapefruit seed extract; fresh lemon juice (in tea); fresh grated ginger (in tea); licorice, peppermint, and nettle tea; astragalus. Oh, i also drank tart cherry juice, which is good for inflammation. This is off the top of my head, i may have tried a few other things.
I'm thankful to be healing so quickly from the assault. On top of the damage done to my lung by the sunflower seed, i let it be assaulted by medical care as well as they searched for the seed. (In this case i'm not running down the medical care, simply saying that the necessary procedure was invasive and would have done damage, too.)
I met two other Big Bear bloggers in the past couple of weeks. We went to Jeanne's home for a garage sale. Isn't her house gorgeous? I got a lap quilt for Duane's grandma at Jeanne's garage sale and all Duane's family just loved it. Yesterday i was blessed to meet Jeanine and her husband at the last Garden Club meeting of the year. I'm not much of a gardener, but i was so impressed with the group and how helpful and friendly everyone was. I look forward to being part of that group when it resumes next year. Of course, David is a long term blogger from here in Big Bear. I knew him before i knew he blogged! He is probably our "longest" friend here in Big Bear. I am so thankful that he is our (both Duane's and mine) friend.
I don't think Duane reads my blog much. He may visit on occasion, but he is not a regular reader. Why should he read the very things he hears me say (and re-say, as i tend to repeat myself)? So i showed him the last post on the funny knits. He laughed at the oversize, out of gauge (third) pic. But he really laughed at the last one. This is the change he recommended for it:
Hope y'all are having a great week! Duane is now gone off the mountain. He'll be back Thursday. I'm home, still recovering, but feeling much, much better. And very thankful, too.
