LOTS of fresh garlic. well, don't make yourself sick or anything, but as much as you can handle as soon as you possibly can. with lots of simple carbs to digest it and help stave off tummyache from it, then lots of green tea and fresh fruit. garlic is my family's go-to for colds and if you eat it soon enough (swallow chunks with water or chew if you really have balls ), it will kill the virus every time.

Hey 2ndchances,

How are you feeling? Thinking of you and wishing you the best of luck. It sounds like you're in good hands though =)

Thank you all so much for the thought and prayers everyone! I'm not sure how I've been so blessed in life to have so much love and support, but I certainly feel it! My brother, who I haven't seen in 6 year is here with me, my mom, who I haven't seen in 5 as well.

Today I've gone from giddy, to crying, to completely nauseous several times. One more load of laundry, last minute things to put aside, and that's it. 4:30a alarm is set, 6:00a arrival at the hospital, 8a is surgery. Thank you all for being there!!

xoxo
