On Friday John woke up with a sore throat...which is how my sickness started. So, knowing he was leaving on Saturday for two days, he spent the day downing orange juice. Then, after supper, we made a quick trip to Walgreen's to stock up on zinc, cold medicine, vitamin C, cough drops and tissue.
On a recommendation from a friend (Heidi) at work, one of the products we bought was "Airborne." (Heidi swears by it!)
John took some (along with a little of everything else we bought) and he seems to have stemmed the tide a little...not sure if Airborne is what did it...but sounds like he thinks it just turned into a head cold instead of all out croup.
According to the package, AirborneÂ® was developed by a school teacher who was sick of getting sick in the classroom. It can be taken 2 ways: at the first sign of a cold symptom, or before entering crowded, potentially germ-infested environments, like airplanes and offices.
So...next time you're starting to feel that little sick tingle...check it out. You never know. There just might be something to it.
