Here is one of Sheena's "crazy Baba's" recipe that works for her "crazy ant"
Cut up a lemon
Put pieces in a pitcher
Pour boiling water into pitcher
Stir and squish up the lemon pieces a bit
Pour in some honey - not too sweet - not too sour.

Drink either hot or let it cool down and keep it by your bedside all day and night. A lot of Vitamin C

The other Crazy Baba recipe is break open a raw egg on one side and guzzle it down. That one I could never do!

The hot lemonade one sounds very good. However, I have no lemons. I will have to wait until one of my male slaves does some groceries for me.

I forgot - you can keep topping up the hot water once the juice gets low. The lemon is good for a few fillups. I made a pitcher of this once and kept it at work on my desk - everytime I felt a cough coming on - it would help soothe it. One season of that crazy Toronto air gave me bronchitis for many years after when I moved back to the Peg.

Are you feeling any better yet, Sheena? Did you try a walk-in clinic?

Warm Get Well wishes, Sheena! Thank goodness you're not as deathly ill as you were two(?) years ago.
