Let it never be said that I don't practice what I preach. Since falling ill to a nasty and fluish sort of virus six days ago, courtesy of a patient who didn't cover her mouth while coughing, I've taken:

1. Tamiflu (just in case it was the flu)
2. Robitussin with codeine (only way to sleep through the night with total body misery plus cough)
3. Levaquin (just one--wanted to start antibiotics the moment the sinuses gave way to infection)
4. Biaxin (the choice of Dr. Ed Hepworth--Denver's top sinus doc--because it not only kills bad bugs hiding in dark moist places, but also decreases the inflammation of those infected spaces)

This afternoon, I finally felt well enough to eat two dark chocolate turtles on top of the a.m. Starbucks coffee cake. Back to business as usual!
