Awww...poor, sick Mr. Sweet

He woke up with a terrible cold...
nothing makes you feel as bad as an old cold.

The thing I worry about is that it's in his chest, too.
Pneumonia is very scary to an olden person and I sure don't want 
him to get it.
He feels too bad to go to the doctor today...
just feels rotten.
Maybe tomorrow.....

In the meantime...


The doctors say there really is healing in CHICKEN SOUP..

I know they probably mean
HOMEMADE soup...

but no chicken to boil....

and 2 large cans of Campbells...








 ...and we all know the healing power of Vitamin  C





I fixed my silly self a large bowl ..... just in case. :)


I would love to know that you are saying a small prayer for Mr. Sweet.
It becomes much harder for an 80 year old to shake anything....
even a simple, common cold.
THANK YOU !

  1. Oh how sorry I am to hear this. Homemade chicken soup works wonders....the Italian wedding soup or a homemade chicken pot pie. A prayer for being resored to good health is coming you way....please take care and stay warm! Sending a hug too!

  2. So sorry to hear he is not feeling well. Praying for strength and quick recovery. Colds are the worst!! And yes, having it turn into pneumonia is so scary.

  5. Hi Maam Sweet Bj,

    I am so sorry to know Sir Sweet is having a cold. I have colds too. Got this when I woke up yesterday. But I am only 56 (soon). So, guess I cope up better that Sir Sweet, physically matter.

    Boil fresh ginger, honey and lemon is the best remedy (Filipino way).

    Hugs to both our Sweet in blogsphere.

  8. Oh, I really know what you are talking about. Pneumonia is awful. Had it once, and don't want it again. Hopefully, the soup will hasten the healing!!

  11. So sorry Mr. Sweet is down with a cold. My hubby and I are just getting over it too...it has got be so much harder when you're 80...praying he is well soon! And about the soup...I don't know that I have ever seen "Dry Egg Noodle Recipe" on the can before. Is there a difference between that and just plain ol' Campbell's Noodle Soup??

  19. Said a prayer for him. I have gotten up the last two days with a sore throat and sniffles, now a cough, by hubby is insisting I go to the doctor. Maybe in the morning, but it's going to be 14 degrees. Yiks!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Will say prayers for Mr. Sweet. I know how a 80 year feels, will be 80 in July. I try to stay away from people that are coughing and go the other way. I always wipe down the grocery cart with the wipes and stay out of crowds. I had pneumonia 5 years ago and almost died and it's not fun. So take good care of Mr Sweet and give him lots of Homemade chicken broth.

  21. Hope he gets better fast -- your cooking will do the trick!! I'm on week two of the cough, but feel so much better. Take care, Sally

  22. I hope he recovers from his cold. I know even as a 20 something they are not fun, I can imagine that's probably ten times less fun for him.

    Also noticed you had some of those cuties citrus clementines/mandarins. Those are the best. They kind of ruin regular oranges for me. Like Honeycrisp apples doesn't make me want any other apple

  23. I SEND UP A PRAYER FOR MR SWEET. THIS YEAR A LOT OF FOLKS ARE VERY SICK. HOPE ITS ONLY A COLD.

  25. I hope Mr. Sweet will be feeling better soon, and that you don't come down with it. I believe that Chicken Noodle Soup really does help, and even if it didn't, it tastes good. So it helps psychologically. It is 7 degrees outside right now, and so many people around here are sick. It makes me sure we will not be going to any restaurants or fast food places for quite some time. I get paranoid that workers there might not be washing their hands as well as we would like for them to before touching the food. When I go to any stores I slather Purell on my hands when I get back out to the car.

    I'm sending healing thoughts you and Mr. Sweet's way. Take care and stay cozy.

  27. I'm honored to join with Mr. Sweet's prayer warriors, BJ!
    You know, I used to sort of scoff at that chicken-soup theory ... until I discovered the most amazing chicken matzah ball soup at a nearby deli. Now, come the first sore-throat of the season we go running for take-out. Take good care of you, too, please?

  32. I hope you both feel better real soon. Yes, drinking plenty of water and chicken soup is really good, especially if you add onions and garlic to it, they are natural antibiotics. Another thing that is quite helpful is ............ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHGqL-Evsrc
    It really helps and is tasty, too.

  33. I pray your guy is back to his old self soon...be healthy, both of you. I think hot "anything" is good for a cold. Some tea with honey is great...it coats the throat so the coughing doesn't irritate it. I know you will take good care of him, BJ!

  38. I will pray for your SWEET MR. SWEET that he heals quickly and that you don't catch that stinking cold! Chicken noodle soup and a p'nut butter and jelly sandwich always makes me feel better:) Have a blessed day dear B.J. HUGS!

  39. I am just on the other side of a 2 month bout with pneumonia and it's not much fun for a 50 year old to heal from it either. I will keep him in my good thoughts.

  43. Oh bj ... so sorry Mr. Sweet has a cold. This kind of weather is just perfect for that. Chicken noodle soup is the best. I make a chicken noodle soup that I call Grandma's Cure All. It really works. Sending Get Well wishes, warm hugs and a little prayer.

  44. When I was growing up, a hot Toddie and potato soup was a sure cure all. I just knew I would die from that drink tho. Trust Mr. Sweet is feeling better soon.
