Maureen, have you tried Vicks on your feet for your cough? At least at night when you sleep. I saw it a couple times online and finally tried it, it does work. Just apply to the bottoms of your feet, rub it in and put a pair of socks on. It really works.
Errr Chet, is this for real? Coughing here right now and don't want my wife laughing hysterically if I try it!
