It was inevitable, I guess. That little tickle in my throat...the seemingly innocent sniffles I tried not to notice as my daughter was getting hooked up to IV fluids last Monday... the headache and sore throat that reared their ugly heads when my husband came down with the stomach bug. Yep, they caught up to me today. Too much stress and germ paranoia make for a sick caregiver. Not surprising. The good news is my upper respiratory infection seems to have prevented the stomach virus from taking hold. At least, for now. Maybe I should have stayed in the mountains.
