Need Zinc


Caught a cold---the painters in my home hid my vitamins so I couldnt take em ...so..BAM...a sneaky upper respiratory germ slid in! Well, I've been slammin zinc & Vit C down my throat, sucking on Coldeeze and pouring chicken broth and tea down there too...and the germ is almost all gone. A 2-day virus......that'll teach it!!! So my running, biking and swimming has been on a hold til I shake it off a bit....unfortunately I got those damn Girl Scout Cookies in the cabinet!!! ( why can't I create new paragraphs on here??!!--this formatting stuff kills me)

One of my favorite patients, Roy, gave me a cutting of his amarylis plant and pussy willow tree. I have two amazing flowers that just bloomed on the amarylis. Unfortunately, Roy passed away last week while I was gone. His wife called to tell me and when I told her about the flowers she said it's like they came out just for my Dad and Roy. I don't know how that part of the world works, but I like the thought.

Amaryllis blooms are just amazing, aren't they?

I'm sorry to hear about Roy, but it is a beautiful thought about the flowers.

Hey, landed on your blog, nice stuff. I found a cool new tool for our blogs... www.widgetmate.com It helps get latest news for our keywords directly on to our blog. I added it on mine. Worked like a charm.
