... in the form of strep. Probably contacted from darling daughter who carried it home from her friend's house where both she and her husband suffered a very recent bout. Darling daughter is NOT stuck with the ouchy throat, probably because she's been exposed to this particular bug before and her immune system knew what to do with it. I, on the other hand, am stuck with an ouchy throat.
My remedy ... which is actually somewhat tasty. This would make an awesome sauce for baked chicken! But swallowing the stuff with an ouchy throat is not easy.
The honey and garlic are local. The garlic came from Good Earth Organic Farm ... I found them at the McKinney Farmer's Market and they grow and sell the most amazing greens. The honey came from AP's Apiary. I so appreciate my local whole food sources around here. It's probably because I eat locally grown whole foods that this dumb sore throat isn't any worse than what it is. I don't even have a fever ... just a pain in the neck! hahahahaaaa
Forgive the cheesey joke, I'm not totally myself. Blame the hydrocodone.
Here's a shot of his instrument of torture ... um I mean, rack ... um, I mean range of motion machine ... the poor guy has to stay in this fuzzy contraption for 6-8 hours a day for who knows how long! He's blessed with even stronger pain meds than hydrocodone.
When he's not being tortured by the range of motion machine, we are doing our best to keep Nino from thinking it's a $4K chew toy.
Time for another spoonful of medicine ...
