Our Strong Son is back at college. Spring Break is over. He had been invited to go to the beach with one group of friends and to go hunting with another. He wound up staying at home, and as it turned out, that was the best thing for him.
He had been battling a cold for weeks. The week before Spring Break he called to say that his cough was worse, and he was coughing up a little blood. "Get to the doctor," I said. A chest x-ray ruled out TB and pneumonia. He just had a deeply imbedded cough.
I fed him lots of vegetables while he was home. I didn't forbid him to eat grain. (You don't exactly forbid a 22 year old to do things. I trained him right when he was little, and pray for him now that he is own his own) I just didn't fix many things with grain, even beneficial grains for the As.
SS has always been a night owl. He was in bed soon after midnight most of the nights he was home, and I let him sleep in every morning. Nine to ten hours of sleep worked wonders.
The night before he left, I asked about the cough and was delighted to hear that it was almost gone. "I just needed fresh food and lots of sleep," SS said. Isn't that the truth for all of us!
