Martha,

Try taking 2 capsules of echinacea with goldenseal every 4 hours along with heavy doses of vitamin C. Your friendly vitamin store will have what you need.

Actually, he's right. I closed me eyes for a second and next thing I knew, it was over. I was a bit annoyed cause I told the the doc that I wanted to remain a wake during the procedure. Didn't want strangers messing with my a$$ while I was out. Although the doctor advised against it, I even rode my bike about 10 miles back home.

"GoLytely": Isn't that the example used in Webster's Dictionary when you look up the definition of "oxymoron"?

That's what my Crystal Lite reference was about. Helps the flavor a bit. Good luck.

I'm not sure just how far you plan to take the round by round commentary, but I think I'll pass on the next round and pick you back up tomorrow afternoon .

Does that probe have a BAC sniffer on it?

Re: I'm all stuffed up!

Nyquil and a beer! No really, the Nyquil is great for me, knocks me out all night, and strangely, I'm without symptoms for about 3 hours in the morning afterwards - which is more than any other drug has done for me. That three hour window always kept me sane and made the other 15 waking hours tolerable.

NORDS, ROTFLMAO!!! I'm seeing you and 50 Cent knockin' back a case of it with your homies.

Yeah but, you don't wash them enough.

Not only did she give me her cold, she took the couch, the blankie, and the #%^*%#!!!-ing TV remote. What's a DH to do? Maybe leave the toilet seat up before I go to bed?

Man, do you have a death wish?

It's just a TV remote. You can buy an extra one at any Radio Shack, and then you both can play channel games...

Re: I'm all stuffed up!

I still have the remote, as I lay on the couch with my computer.

Watched too much HGTV yesterday. Even commercials. Commercials for cholesterol lowering drugs interspersed with double stuffed Oreo commercials.

Dog52, are you back from your "procedure" yet?
