My sore throat improved when I gargled with warm salt water,but I had to get a doctor order to be allowed to do it. It helped get rid of the swollen sore throat thing. I had plenty of fresh oranges for vitamin c naturally. I wiped down with a washcloth dipped in ice water to cool down when I felt hot and kept it on my forehead. I drank ice water to cool inside. I drank hot tea to sooth my throat. I ate a salty pickle so I was thirsty and could flush my system with plenty of fluids.
Everyone is getting sick here.
My other roommate had stroke and does not talk now. She will wave and smile at me. Well she has been coughing like she is congested. I keep telling the nurses. One raised her bed a bit. So I tell another one. Today she pushed her lunch tray on the floor. Wonder what she wants to communicate. No one comes in. No doc comes. She cannot complain so I keep telling them she is coughing rattle croupy cough. No one checks it out. I hear her choking on phlegm.They raise her bed up but that is it. Guess they let it run a course.
