Well, I 'm still sick, but it's not that bad. Both Bob and I are still coughing. It's 5 weeks for Bob and 4 weeks for me.

We are going to Texas to visit the Blairs November 6th! I can't wait to see them, but I don't want to give this to them!!!

So we got more antibiotic meds, hoping to help. Well, the Patient Education info states: "DO NOT TAKE THIS MEDICINE ON AN EMPTY STOMACH at least 1 hour or 2 hours after eating...." The next directions; "THIS MEDICINE MAY BE TAKEN WITH FOOD if it upsets your stomach..." We laughed as I popped the pill in my mouth. Bob left to school and I went to check the blogs and wait to eat my breakfast. Within 15 minutes, my tummy was churning. Oh, no! After another 15 minutes of churning I decided that my stomach was upset. So I ate, even though I didn't want to eat. I chose to eat yogurt, something easy on my tummy. It didn't work. I lost it, anyway! YUK!

I have to "TAKE 1 CAPSULE BY MOUTH TWO TIMES A DAY" So, should I use the meds or forget it? Then I thought about Elizabeth and Amelia. I decided to take the medicine last night "2 hours after eating" and I was good. This morning I ate a yogurt and I am waiting to eat more food "2 hours after eating" again.

I hope it works this morning. And this is the end of blogging about my stupid, long nasty cough! I Promise.

Amelia is being so stinking cute lately now that she can walk and carry things. And Elizabeth is learning so much. You'll be glad you made the trip even if you still have the cough.

Yeah, what James said. Seriously, I'm glad you didn't come last month like you'd originally talked about. Amelia's little personality has just totally blossomed now that she can walk and Elizabeth's speech improves week by week.

I hope you feel better! Sometimes a cough can just lag on! Jovie has a cough... therefore she wakes herself up... therefore she wakes the mommy & daddy up! It is just that time of year when the sicknesses begin!
