It may sound odd but i used to get horrible sore throats all the time and I found the best cure for me was to crush an asprin on a spoon put a little water with it and swallow it. The asprin would coat my throat and really help the pain!!!!! Just my two cents worth .

Yesterday evening I got dizzy suddenly for no good reason, and it just got worse, so I went to bed early. Even lying down, the bed spun unless I lay very still. I wasn't dizzy when I got up this morning, but I didn't feel right all day, and still don't. I think it has something to do with yesterday's dizziness somehow. I may stay home tomorrow if I feel the same in the morning. But that's nothing compared with what some of you are dealing with right now. You're all in my thoughts.
I hope you are better today, Merry! {{{hugs}}}

If that doesn't work, I guess I'll just go back to business as usual tomorrow and try to work through it. Momnan, I wonder if the maneuver would help with these after-effects even though the whirlies are gone? Couldn't hurt, I guess.

(((Merry))) praying you feel back to normal soon !! xo

Good Thursday afternoon, my Christmas friend!

Please forgive any typing errors, i'm using my cell in my hospital room. Also wathing the Christmas episode of "The Mentalist".

I had 2 more blockages in the same vein, so the doctor put another stent in. I'm feeling much better now. He said if I weren't already taking all my medicine, i would have had another heart attack. He said this was just another unexpected fluke, and i should have anymore troubles. Here's hoping!

I'll check in tomorrow. I hope y'all have a great evening, and thanks for the prayers!
