Yikes. So, I have a way overactive immune system. So much so that even when J got really sick at Christmas, even though I was immunosuppressed with high dose steroids, I never got as much as the sniffles. However, apparently the long term stress of preparing for and taking the boards is a much more effective immune suppressant than prednisone. I am SICK!!!! So sick. J had it last week and is just feeling better. I can't really get solid foods past my gigantically swollen throat. It is no fun. I figure, I have 3 days to get better before my awesome trip. I've been planning this trip for months and months, so I will do absolutely everything I can to make sure this thing gets better quickly. We're already planning to bring all those symptomatic meds just in case we're both not up to par. But I'm willing to try any home remedies that might have some validity. If you have any ideas, let me know! And I promise I'll be resting with loads of fluids. So outside of those, please send ideas!!!!
