I thought Eler Beth was getting sick last weekend, but she got over it quickly. By Sunday afternoon she was as bouncy as ever. She was fine when she went fishing on Wednesday, but by Friday she was feeling bad again. I think it's just allergies, but she's getting a lot of congestion in her chest, and last night she was up coughing.
I'll probably have to take her to the urgent care center tomorrow for some medicine. I don't think I'll want to wait until Monday. I've doctored her up all day, but about an hour ago she started REALLY complaining about the coughing; and it is getting worse. She has been adamantly against taking Thera-Flu, which I know will relieve the cough. I had told her earlier that if the cough came back really bad tonight, that she'd either have to take the Thera-Flu or some whiskey, honey, and lemon. She chose the whiskey, honey, and lemon. So I mixed some up for her and she took the first tablespoon easily. The second one didn't go down quite so well, though. I didn't push for a third.
A few minutes ago she came to me, crying, complaining of being dizzy. "Whisky can make you drunk, right?" she whimpered. "You get dizzy when you're drunk, don't you?"
I assured her that she was probably dizzy from the congestion in her head, and that the amount of whiskey she had had would neither have made her drunk nor dizzy. Poor baby. I hope she can drop off to sleep soon and get a good night's rest.
We had some rain Wednesday night and Thursday morning, and the temps were 20 degrees colder than the day before. But Thursday afternoon was full of very bright sunshine, and we've had nothing but sun and fairly mild temperatures since. Okay, I guess that catches up my rather boring week. I hope everyone is having a good weekend, and I'll try to get by to say hi to each of you soon.
