Don't know what is making the difference. Probably a combination of medication kicking in, 11 hours sleep last night, use of a humidifier, and the effect of time. But I do feel some better. And it is very nice to have my mom's help with the first period class every day, which means I don't have to be at work so early.
And Mike came home from work tonight - sick as a dog again. When one of us goes up, the other goes back down. We're pitiful. I couldn't even give him a hug because he didn't want to give me, nor did I want to get, his germs. Happy Valentine's Day!
