I've just been thinking, which has been getting in the way of writing.

No news on First's nose yet. Today I will go harrass the vet about it.

Good to know. That you're still here, that is.

Also, you might be interested in this. It's an abstract of a study done about the effects of loratadine (aka Claratyne) comapred to phenylephrine and a placebo on hayfever symptoms.

Money quote: "There was no statistically significant difference between phenylephrine and placebo."

So bearing in mind that phenylephrine was used to replace pseudoephedrine in medicines because ZOMG DRUGGZ ARE BAD!!1!eleven! and phenylephrine is essentially a placebo, where does that leave those of us with colds, hayfever and runny noses? Hoarding our stocks of pseudoephedrine? Stocking up on loratadine? Investing heavily in companies that make neti pots?

I have a small stock of codral with pseudoephedrine, and it's MINE dammit MINE. :P

Was beginning to wonder what had eaten you (figuring that it had to be a bit drastic to keep you off the air/wires/whatever).

Good to hear you're OK, even if you still have no news on First...
