Lucy . . can you spare some popsicles??
« on: June 25, 2009, 11:25:35 AM »
Lucy,

I am in desperate need of some popsicles right now!!!  I've caught a cold bug from my hubby and my throat hurts so much today.   :(

Does anyone have any suggestions for easing a really sore throat?  This is my first experience with a Sjogren's cold.  Let me tell you, I DON'T like it!!!!  Guess I'll go gargle with some warm salt water and then change my clothes and head to the grocery store in a quest for popsicles (sorry Lucy, I'm impatient . . . LOL).

One tired Bucky

Hi Bucky

I'm sorry to hear your husband has been sharing with you. Tell him from me, he's far too generous ;) ;) When my throat is sore I find cold yoghurt very soothing.

Hope you feel better soon.

Awww Bucky, I am real sorry to hear that you have a cold. I use Halls throat drops or Halls sugar free Vitamin C drops when my throat hurts. Of course the old stand by, Sucrets can help too.

I found these great popsicles. They are Lifesaver sugar free and they are yummy. There are five great flavors but they are stacked on top if each other on one popsicle. Very yummy and they make my dry throat feel good.

I hope you start feeling better. Colds are so miserable and summer colds are especially nasty. Be sure to rest and take good care of yourself. Don't make me bring the jet up there. That's right, I have custody of it this week.  ;D ;D

Hugs,
qt

Hi Bucky,

Tell hubby to quit sharing the germs and I sure hope that you feel better soon!

Take care of yourself, and have a ton of them!

Aww Bucky, there is nothing worse than a sore throat and a summer cold.  Yuck, Yuck, Yuck!!

Take care, drink lots of liquids, get some Vit. C in you, and enjoy those popsicles.  Even without a sore throat and cold, I live on the Weight Watchers Giant Latte ones.  I get my coffee and popsicle all in one.  :D

Take care,

Hugs, Pooh

Greetings from my computer w/lotion tissue beside me, popsicle in hand.   ;D

Lynnmarie, your icon is an exact replica of me!!

QT, I'm a little better thanks, my throat doesn't hurt AS bad today.  Today I "sound" like I have a cold - the deep, husky voice.  Went outside and mowed the grass for two hours today - don't feel any worse doing that than if I just sit around inside.  At least the grass looks good.   ;D

This is just going to have to run it's course . . . yippee zippy.   ::)

Everyone have a good weekend . . . . last weekend in June!!!   :o

Hugs (I promise not to breathe on you . . lol),

I'll never tell, lol. All that matters is that I have it this week, but I am willing to share.  ;D  Hurry before hubby takes off for parts unknown to avoid his knee surgery. Although I will say, it is not good with take out windows and it's hard to park at the doc's office, so maybe I should pass it on to one of you next week.

qt  ;D

Quiggs,

How in the world, never mind, you are a lady with a few tricks up "her" sleeves! ;) :D 

Don't forget to rope that hubby up and drag him to the docs to get all better!  ;) ;D

Hey Bucky

Hope you're beginning to feel better.  Summer colds are so miserable, but at least you have a good choice of popsicles (are they ice lollies in UK speak?).

I'm about to have two weeks between types of chemo so I can (finally) spend time with sick friends.  So if you need a hug then I'm your woman!

Take care - Chickpea

Hey Bucky,

Sorry to hear your with a cold.  That sore throat thing is miserable, I hope you got past that.

My remedy for everything, is ice cream and Hershey's syrup. I take it every day for medicinal purposes. Makes me feel better.  ;)

Although at 10:30 tonite I ask my husband to take me to the sonic for a hot fudge sundae, and he did of course. I feel better already. If you came over I would take you and have another.  :) And we could feel even better together.  ;D

love and hugs, kimbo
