Sinusitis? I recommend Getting this: NeilMed Sinus Rinse Kit

 This weekend has been absolutely brutal for me (Rob) with a bad sinus infection (that followed asthma and bronchitis). My thanks to all who recommended a Neilmed Sinus Rinse Kit or a Neti pot. I got the Neilmed Sinus Rinse Kit and it helped a lot. (if you have an infection - green mucus - you should go to the doctor and get antibiotic to clear it).
   I've used nasal saline solution and it winds up burning the back of your throat. With this rinse, it doesn't. There are 50 packets of medicine that include some salt and baking soda in a  gentle mix that must be mixed with purified or distilled water (get it at the grocery). You fill the bottle with water and mixture and leaning over the sink, squirt it up one side of your nose - it will clear out the congestion through the other side of your nose.
   I've been doing this a couple of times a day, and it really helps. You can get it at CVS, Target, etc. Everyone with sinus congestion NEEDS to get this. It's about $10 and so worth it.
    OTHER THINGS TO DO  Take 12 hour Mucinex DM, Sudafed PE, Motrin, and 12 hour cough syrup. **SLEEP sitting straight up. It helps drain the sinuses - whether propped up in bed with pillows, or on a recliner.
After 2 weeks of sickness, I'm HOPING to be better by the end of the week.  - Rob

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
