Poinsettia

My son walked in our door on Monday with this beautiful Poinsettia. So sweet of him.

My husband gave me the horrible cold he got at work, what a gift. Raging sore throat that lasted 2 days along with a runny nose, sneezing, sinus and teeth pain and a huge headache. Sitting up to sleep so it does not go into my chest.
Lots of water, tea with honey, kleenex, cough drops, turkey soup that I made after Thanksgiving and Tylenol. Flu vaccine apparently did not include this and this is going around.
So I stay inside with it so cold outside and just started raining. These are the good things, well the rain especially.
It is pretty. Hope you are getting over that cold.

@princessm Thank you, Decima. Not one of my best photos but did not want to go outside in the daylight. I hope this cold is going away. My husband has had it about a week longer than me at this point.

@darsphotos Sounds like a hard one to shake off.

I know how you feel. Hans had the flu, then it went into his head, his throat and now into his chest. I'm trying my not to catch it. so far so good. he is in his 3rd week, but it looks like it's almost all gone. he was so weak and had to rest quite often, also took short naps during the day we both take five to sick drops or organic oregano oil every day. it seems to help me. Hans also had a flu shot. I don't take any.

So nice of your son to surprise you with this beautiful poinsettia. just love that orange/red color.

So pretty. Hope you feel better soon, Darlene. My daughter gave me her cold but mine is mostly gone now.

To brighten up your day and to brighten up ours too! A lovely colourful pot plant! I'm still trying to get rid of mine!

@bruni Poor Hans. I feel for him. Sounds more viral when it travels like that. I stayed away from Dan but in the same house is impossible. 3 weeks is a long time. Glad it is almost gone. Dan is working and took no time off. He is tired but doing ok. I am resting as I can as it is hard to sleep very much. I have not heard of Organic Oregano. I take a flu shot every year and got a shingles vaccine too as I had Chicken Pox as a kid and so did Dan and he got one too. His boss is in her early 40's and got Shingles and the nurse that gave me my flu shot said her daughter had shingles when she was 2 years old. Would not wish any of this upon anyone.

My son is a sweetheart. He and his girlfriend walked in after being gone on a weekend trip and a day of rest, Erik with this plant in his hands. Thank you Bruni. Stay healthy.

@mittens Thank you, Marilyn. I hope this goes away soon too. Not a very good gift to get. Sorry your daughter was sick and you too. Hope it was short lived for both of you. Had a coughing attack tonight that took some very warm almost hot tea and a cough drop to calm down and then my nebulizer as my lungs burned and my back hurt so much from coughing. Take care and feel better soon.

@maggiemae Thank you so much, Maggiemae. I was not into taking a photo but did. How long have you been sick and what have you done to get well? I am ready for this to go away and for my husband to be well too. Cold rainy weather sure does not help. Take care and feel better soon.

@darsphotos I got sick about 11 days ago, Darlene - just a cold but the cough hangs on... Can't do much about it other than eat lots of fruit!
