We have been relatively healthy lately, but, I fear that is about to change with the weather. I have noticed a few people around here sniffing and this morning I have a sore throat. A sore throat sends me into panic mode because two years ago, at Christmas time Karrah and I came down with Strep Throat. I thought I was going to die. I had never had Strep Throat before and I kept thinking I would get better, I didn't. By the time we went to the doctor's my throat was white and I couldn't swallow, it hurt to breathe and sleeping was impossible. After three days on the meds, Karrah was feeling better while it took me about a week to even be able to sleep again. I never, never, never want to get that again. So you can imagine the thoughts that run through my mind when I start feeling a sore throat coming on.
I know just where all these germs are coming from to. My boys sit in a classroom every day with more than 30 other germy kids. They all touch the door knobs and the chairs, and the drinking fountain handles. GROSS!!! I can only imagine where those hands have been. It's a wonder we all make it to adulthood. We must be the hardiest of the hardy. But still, keep your germs to yourself. As my son pointed out yesterday, I am past half way to death so nobody push me before my time.
