She slept better last night, between taking rescue remedy at night and sleeping on the couch rather than her bed (so she can stay elevated) she's at least in better spirits from not being sick AND sleep-deprived. Her coughing sounds just as bad as before and the skin around her nose is all red and raw from nose blowing.

I feel like I'm coming down with something, so I've been getting extra sleep, taking raw garlic, extra vitamin C, and proberry. It's hard to tell how much of my fatigue/ickiness is from PMS and how much is from possibly getting sick. DD2 is also showing sign of "coming down with something"( ie, extra tiredness and irritability) but she's resistant to taking supplements. DS is overall better than he was, but is still coughing and still has a runny nose.

Quoted from ruthiegirl
I started her on extra vitamin D a few weeks ago. She won't take any vitamins with gelatin (she's more stringent about kosher vitamins than I am) so I bought a liquid D that comes in a dropper bottle; it's just D3 and olive oil. 1 drop is 2,000 iu. She's been taking about one drop a day- should she increase that? I've also been giving it to my son, but not very consistently.


Was with someone this week and he said it is not possible to get a source of Vit D that is vegetarian.

She's no longer a vegetarian- she just wants to avoid gelatin that has not been kosher certified, out of concern that the  gelatin may have come from pigs. The vitamin itself is normally sourced from fish, right?
