Hi <<First Name>>  

Our hot days of summer are finally starting to cool (a bit). We’re hoping our last 110-degree day will be this weekend.

 Hope you’ve survived your summer. Our hearts go out to those who are suffering from the aftermath of hurricane Laura and others who are struggling with COVID.

We had a 20+ day fight with Coronavirus in our house. No one was hospitalized, but it definitely wasn’t fun.

We followed a lot of the advice we wrote in our article: How to Beat A Cold in a Day or Two. Even though it took longer - we were able to battle symptoms with home remedies, a nebulizer with albuterol and some cough medicine.

We’re glad to have it behind us. We hope that you can either avoid Covid or that if you do get it that your case is mild.
