Cold

How in the world do you get a cold when you are isolated in your house for a week???? I had to call the pharmacy to find out what "cold" medicine I could take with the blood thinner they have me on. I have tons of soup, but nothing tastes good. All I feel like doing is watching TV with remote control in hand. Hope everybody is having a good weekend.

Your immune system is worn down from all you've been through. I suggest Emergen-C. Whenever I have a cold, I take several packets a day. Do check with the doctor or pharmacist first since you're on a blood thinner. I can't think of any of the ingredients that would be a problem, but I'm not a pharmacist!

Then you do absolutely that! There is a priority here and that is to get well, so if it means watching TV, then so be it!
I'm glad you have plenty of soup and are inside bundled up!

If you immune system is weak, you can pick up any germ in your house. Feel better.

I have no idea what can cause it, but I think you had an op, you are on meds of different kind - maybe an open window in these temperatures is enough to snap at you. Some days ago I had lost all taste and smell, the coffee in the morning was nothing else but hot brown water - I knew that the whole appartement would smell of it as it always does when I prepare my morning special, but I could not sense it - very odd. This slowly turned down, senses re-appeared, slowly.
Sometimes there is nothing else to do but watch tv. Just make sure that you stand and walk enough, even if it's only floor-up floor-down. Your muscles need this.

Aww sister. Hope you'll feel better in no time! I hate having "cold"...But you know the trick: lots of fluids, plenty of rest!!! God bless.

Oh dear, I'm sorry you're sick. Take it easy. Watching TV wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.

Wishing you well,
