I've been battling strep throat and ear infections for a little while now and have compiled quite a basket of goodies to help me overcome this nasty sore throat that won't leave.
A good book
Chicken noodle soup
Prescription throat gargle
Hot broth-y soup
Yes, I did say tea, and for those who know me you will know how unlikely it is for me to admit to this. I hate tea. I don't like how it looks and I detest how it smells. However, after days of throat spray and gargle having no effect and almost instant soothing after drinking the above-pictured variety, I am a new convert. Well, at least when I have strep throat. I'm not making any promises after I'm well.
Also on the list of necessary items:
Calls from loved ones
Not necessary but pure delight:
Flowers from Daughter #2
A clean kitchen and sweet goodies from Daughter #1.
I am blessed beyond measure...exceeding abundant.
