omg it will be! trying to get everyone all set.

and now - i MIGHT be getting sick! hoping it's just cuz i'm run down. i've been super stressed the past few days, getting all this set up. starting taking airborne this morning. that usually kicks most of my stuff. ugh

thanx for pointing out my boo-boo! LOL

Re: Lav 08-04-11!

Oh no!!! I don't know what all is in airborne, but I've found that vitamin C and plenty of fluids helps me fight off things too. I'm sure you're in overdrive right now, which wont help. The good news is you'll have plenty of time to rest soon? Hope you're doing better ASAP

Re: Lav 08-04-11!

thanx, kbid! i have to run to the dr office to drop off my deductible at lunch time. i will prob stop at walgreens or somewhere & grab some vitamin C. i never take it, so maybe it'll help, too. the airborne has some vit c in it, but i actually just read that it might not be able to be consumed for some medical procedures. ugh! so i'll ask the dr about that, too.

Re: Lav 08-04-11!

Please do not take any more Airborne before you check with your doctor. Airborne contains Vitamin E. Vitamin E should not be taken before surgery as it can slow blood clotting, which could cause surgical complications. It also contains high doses of Vitamin C, which some doctors do not allow their patients to take prior to surgery.

Please call your doctor today. (Not the receptionist)

Hope all goes well for your surgery.

Re: Lav 08-04-11!

Catherine: Thanx for the update! i won't take anymore airborne. after reading it, (of course, after i took it - duh me!), i saw that it said not recommended before some surgeries. luckily, i only took 1/2 a pill.

i am going to the dr. office today. i will definitely check with them. i'm thinking it might just all be from being stressed & run down. i just came off of Augmentin that my dr's partner put me on 3 wks ago. surely to goodness, i'm not REALLY getting sick..............

a good nite's sleep (which i don't ever get) might actually be the cure. hopefully.

thanks so much for the advice!!!!
