Bad cough, somewhat sore throat, coughing, sneezing. This is going through our family at a slow pace. How long will this keep going on?

My grandma Birdie Finkel said that no matter what you do, it is 7 days in and 7 days out. Treat the symptoms; rest, fluids, tea with honey (and possibly a jigger of rum), chicken soup, ice cream, ginger tea, Tylenol.

Feel better, dear skfinkel.

Longer than you’d like.

You may feel low energy for a couple of weeks and have the cough hanging around for three.

Colds will always be one day longer than you want them to be.

Right up until the time you start to heal and it goes away.

It will seem like forever, but when it has passed, you will forget it ever was.
