April 21 - Doctored Up

Bless Jeffrey's heart he's so sick. I have been trying to come up with things to make him feel better. We've given him a bath with peppermint oil in it. He's done the sinus busters. I rubbed grapefruit oil down his spine. Anything to help him get over this cold/flu. He even took Claritin D last night. Wow, last time he took it he went on and on about how great it was. When I was sick though it didn't do diddly! This time when he took it. . . same thing (didn't do diddly for him)  :(  boo.

Tonight he made up some mullein tea (which "naturally" acts as an expectorant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antihistaminic and is also calming) and added honey and lemon (which is a natural suppressant). He was hoping that he could break up all the gunk in his lungs then quiet his cough so he could sleep.  I also got him some NyQuil hoping that this herbal and medicinal combination would do the trick to let him sleep a bit better tonight. Here's hoping that being all doctored up today will do the trick. Then we can both feel a little bit happier.
