I've Been Sick

You haven't heard from me in a while.  I decided to take a little break after the Holidays, and then I got sick. I kept putting off getting health insurance, hoping I can make it until I'm ready for Medicare; now I wish I hadn't. With health insurance I think I would have gone to the doctor sooner.
This time even eating right and using my favorite herbal cures couldn't take care of me.  I finally had to go to the doctor.  Diagnosis ---- ear infection, bronchitis, and early onset pneumonia.  So I caved in and took the antibiotics that were prescribed for me. It's now almost 5 weeks into this thing, and I'm still not up to par.  I do my job, cook, and clean and even did a little work in my garden, but my energy is not coming back as quickly as I would like.
When I was feeling the worst, Mom's recipe for good old-fashioned chicken soup, was all I wanted. Ginger Ale always tasted good and felt good going down my throat, too.  What are your favorite foods to eat when you don't feel well? I'd love to hear about it.
