Poor kid.

Clone has steadily been getting worse through out the day. He seemed okay this morning, but as the day went on, the grouchier he became. He complained he didnít feel good and that his cheek and tummy hurt. I feel bad for the poor guy. Thereís not a lot of anything I can do. Heís been getting his medication on schedule, but I donít know if thatís helping any.

Heís lying on the couch crying right now. I wish there was something/anything I could do to comfort him, but nothing I do seems to work. For most of the day Iíve sat on the couch with him watching movies and TV. Weíve seen Curious George and Cars, along with various Nickelodeon cartoons.

To all of you stay home mothers out there, are the kids cartoons this bad all the time? Iím just wondering, because these were even more stupid then I normally find kids cartoons.

Iíve tried getting Clone to take a nap, but he wonít. Iíve even tried laying down and taking a nap with him. A nap could do me good today, but even with that he wouldnít go to sleep. I just donít know, itís hard to see your kids feeling bad and not able to do anything about it.

I *hate* Rx antibiotics - they're often some pretty harsh stuff.

Since he's so advanced in his symptoms, it's almost closing the barn door after the horse is out, but you might shorten the length of his suffering this way...

If you have a nutritionist (health food) store nearby, grab some Olive Leaf Extract. Sublingual is probably faster-acting (especially if it's difficult to swallow pills) but the taste will probably make him hurl. You'd definitely only trick him ONCE! (Even I won't take the liquid - blecch!)

For the pinkeye and earache, I'd recommend Colloidal Silver - topical. The two working together ought to put the little guy straight in no time (OLE will help the external conditions as well).

I'm not a granola-nuts-twigs-and-bark kinda guy - but someone turned me onto these two in my darkest hours of suffering a few years ago. I've been sold on 'em ever since... Skeptical? Good. Do the research yourself! :)

I will say that since Mrs. Who spends her days with little rugrat-vectors, she tends to bring a lot of crap home with her. I used to get sick whenever there was an outbreak in her classroom. Now, whenever I'm aware that I've been around someone who is sick, or if I feel like I *may* be coming down with something, or if I'm in a situation like, say, being stuck in an AIRPLANE full of coughing idiots - I take Olive Leaf, and maybe spray my eyes, throat and sinuses with Colloidal Silver. It saves me from getting sick nearly every time.

(I even tried c.silver internally when I got food poisoning one time - I was fine in no time at all. Internal use of colloidal silver is a bit more dodgy, however.)

For cold symptoms, I've tried Zinc with little or no overall 'dramatic' success. Of course combined with vitamins C and E it's better, but still not as effective as olive leaf and silver...

Mrs. Who used to be skeptical - now she's hooked on my "voodoo" too! :)
