Prognosis negative

Well, diagnosis negative is the accurate title, but bonus points to anyone who can identify the source.

Anyway, pediatrician suggested cough suppressant, since the cough is mostly horrific at night. If it's still bad, bring her in Monday.

Clinic turned out to be a breeze. But the strep test was negative, lungs are clear, so just (just!) a cold. Warm liquids, rest (ha), cough drops.

The title is from Seinfeld. However, I can't take credit Ben knew it immediately and I truly have no idea what either of you are talking about. He's cooler than me.

I am glad to hear it is "just" a cold. However, I have had "just" a cold for almost two weeks. I hope everyone in the house gets lots of rest and healthy very soon.

Oh Susan and Rich,
Really really sorry for both/all of you. Hope it gets better soon. Put out an APB if you need support.

We have this thing from Germany called Umckalaobo
(sp?). I've only taken it once--woke up sneezing this am--and feel better already. I know it's available here as Umcka--it's homeopathic and Teo takes it willingly enough when he has a cold.

Glad it's not swine flu or flu or strep!
