I have a DRY hacking cough. My wife as a stopped-up nose.

Misery loves company. What are your illnesses?

Cheers, Pete

Hubby had a pretty bad cold last week, and my sister is recovering from bronchitis (and still smoking cigarettes :roll: ). I have my usual allergy symptoms (itchy, stuffy nose) off and on (to what, at this point, I don't know), but otherwise doing ok, thankfully. After my bout with Lyme disease this summer, maybe I'm catching a break.

Sorry to hear you and wife are not feeling well, EconProf - I hope symptoms ease up soon!

Well, it is Texas Mountain Cedar aka Juniper pollen season ... really bad anywhere the S/SW winds blow the Hill Country crop of cedar pollen. It's actually been tracked as far as Canada, so no one is exempt, it seems. I see that there is a bit of it in that area of FL, too ... so that may be your culprit, EconProf. We really were adversely effected by it when we lived in San Antonio and currently the D/FW area is heavily impacted by it. Google "Texas mountain Cedar pollen" or "Cedar Fever" and you'll find all kinds of info. I was going to post a few links I'm familiar with and a study at the University of Tulsa by Dr. Estelle Levetin that I used to contribute photos to --- but the internet is so slow here right now, I'm having trouble loading anything!

GailJean ... lyme disease! :shock: That's serious stuff ... so sorry you went through that but glad you're better! And Pete, glad you and the family are doing well!

We had a "praise the Lord" result to this last biopsy on my hubby's skin cancer. Since he was at work, the nurse called me yesterday to tell us that the "margins are clear" and no sign of any further cancer. So, he gets his stitches out New Years Eve and he'll have an interesting scar for quite sometime, apparently! We're greatly relieved for the clean bill of health, for sure!

Agree about Mountian Cedar pollen in SATX. Really, really bugged my wife when we lived there - similar to pine pollen allergy whhen we lived in the Black Hills, SD.

Good to hear "clear margins" on you husband's skin Ca. We had similar good news in late Sept. for wife's breast Ca lumpectomy - clear margins and negative sentinal lymph nodes. Finished radiation, and now tamoxifen and closely watching for years.
Cheers, Pete
