Meme Friday #27



Today is not such a fun friday for me. It all started Wednesday when my sweet boy work up with what I thought was a cold. By mid day he had a significant fever that was only going up. I quickly called the DR. and got him an appt. Turns out it was a virus...thank god it wasn't strep...I didn't want to deal with a 2.5 year old who had strep - he was whiney and clingy enough as it was. We made it through the day wednesday and we woke up yesterday - my nose was running, my throat tickled and I knew I had caught what he had. Except I didn't....well I did, by mine is worse...

I have strep :( I am eating loads of popsicles. Because that's about all that feels good on my throat. I can't talk - when I try I barely squeak anything out. My husband had to work, so here I am all sick and such, dealing with a sick (but thankfully much better) boy. It's hard to talk to him or anything, which means I have a lot of movies playing and basically have him sit down by my feet.

So on to my Aloha Question:

When you are sick what do you eat and or drink? What soothes your soul?


Like I said I am eating a lot of popsicles because they not only numb my sore throat, they go down easy. I am drinking water, because it's truly the only thing that doesn't make my throat feel worse. I bought some soup that I am hoping to have at lunch, but we will see!

You can join in the fun. Head over to An Island Life for the rules and to link up.

I love Sherbet if my throat is really raw... or I drink loads of Sleepy Time tea with lemon and honey. It always warms me and makes me feel better. Hope you feel better soon!

And thanks for stopping by my blog.

Aw, get well soon!

I usually have chicken broth or hot tea. And Chloraseptic drops.

For me it depends on what I am sick with... but good ol' saltines and 7 up or tea with honey and lemon are some goodies for me : )

My sinus infection morphed into strep - so I feel your pain!

Popsicles are definitely something I use for a sore throat...and hot tea with honey seems to help, too. Hope you and the little ones feel better soon!

When I'm sick I eat what I usually eat, just not as much at a time.

Sorry you're both sick. I had strep when I was a kid and it's not fun!

I hope you feel better soon.

I drink tea and eat chocolates or something sweet. Or nothing at all, unless I feel hungry.

And then there are times I force myself to eat a bit to keep strength for my body.

Popsicles are the best when it's strep...milkshakes or smoothies are good too.

So very sorry that you and your son are sick!! I was sick the week before and thank goodness for very hot chicken soup and a chocolate frosty when I felt a little bit better.

I sure hope you are both completely better very soon, Denise!!
