Oh Hippi, I'm so sorry you got the flu. I've been so bad about keeping in touch but this weekend I did think about you and your daughter. First place! You must be so very proud. I have granddaughters her age, and I must say I wish they had a mother who was as dedicated as you are to your daughter. She's a lucky kid.
I hope the flu goes away and stays away. Do you every try the saline rinse when you have sinus problems? I flush my sinuses nearly every day and sometimes two times a day. It helps me a lot. My pcp has given me the following plan of attack: 1. Use Afrin 2. Immediately after the Afrin, flush sinuses with saline water (I get the water as hot as I possibly can). And I don't remember 3 or 4. :) But then I drink a cup of tea just as hot as I can get it. This won't clear up a sinus infection, but it helps me get rid of those awful sinus headaches. And Hippi, make yourself rest.
I hope you get some wonderful souveniers from China to make up for having to be alone for the week.
Take care of yourself and let me know how you get on.
