Being sick is no fun but over the years, I've learned that in order to make the healing process easier and especially when caring for a sick person, it helps to have a "Sick Kit" ready.
My definition of a Sick Kit is a collection of items that are useful for helping a sick person to get better. (In case you're wondering, this is different from a First Aid kit because it contains items that are more specific to a particular illness.)
In our case, we included the following:
- Throat lozenges
- Saline nose spray
- Box of Tissues
- Trash can for throwing used tissues
- Notes on my phone for tracking fever temperatures
Everything (except the trash can) was put on a small, portable table and positioned right next to the bed. Easy! :)
So while my husband and I aren't 100% recovered yet, I can safely say that a little bit of organizing (and tons of tissues) did help us to feel a lot better!
