PSA: Influenza

This is a public service announcement. If you have the signs of influenza and you visit your doctor within 48 hrs of the onset of the fever, there are antiviral medications they can give you to shorten the duration of the illness. If, however, you wait until you’ve had the fever for 3-4 days, all they can do is treat symptoms and mine gave me Generic-tussin with codeine. I’ll be in a drug-induced haze for the next couple of days.

  1. Feel better soon!!
    When you’re more recovered, I would love to get some advice on the chocolate flowers. I tried– without succeeding– to make them for a shower last weekend, and I was hoping to get some hints on how to be more successful in the future!
