How's the cold symptoms your chest clear yet?  I broke down and bought some mucinex today.  It's been two weeks and while I still have a productive cough, my chest isn't clear yet...thought I'd help it along.

Mucinex is a over the counter med that helps to break up the mucous in your chest so you can cough it out.  I used it a few months ago and it worked pretty well.  Gail where do you live?  I always thought for some odd reason you lived in Georgia (US) because of the ga in gachrons.  Now I realize it is part of your first name.  Sure hope you two get rid of those nasty colds soon.

Gail let us know what the doc says.


God Bless,
