Wehav here, still coughing, doc gave me new antibiotics but my regular doc is off today so they didn't give me the new inhaler... So I'm not confident I'll be sleeping tonight...

But I'm sober. And we have cake and kittens. And jokes about manflu. I love you guys!
Think Positive _ Draw Positive.

Feel better soon!

Saline rinse may help too. Hugs.................

Added at least 30 minutes to my morning routine, but I don't mind.
Nothing is by accident, Melki. So glad you're here.
