The Warning

Coach gave me one instruction (warning) for the remainder of my training:

DO NOT GET SICK!!!

This has been a tough instruction to follow as I work with kids and have always been highly susceptible to getting sick. But, now I'm on new sinus allergy medicine and I've been doing the Neti Pot. I've been washing my hands like a machine and using hand sanitizer like it's going out of style.

Yesterday I noticed Dave sneeze. I asked him if he was getting sick. He said no that he just had dust up his nose since he was sanding some Spackle. This morning when I was talking to him on the phone he sounded congested and I asked him if he was feeling alright. Again he confirmed that it was just dust from the sanding. I get home from work and it's clear that he is not well.

Dave is sick.

Great.

Tonight and maybe for the remainder of the week I will be sleeping in a separate bedroom. I will wash my hands like crazy. I will take zinc and continue to follow all my sinus instructions.

I WILL NOT GET SICK BEFORE THIS WEEKEND!!

That's our hope too, Lindsay! Night 1 on the couch wasn't so bad, and I'm actually feeling a little better today. *crosses his fingers*
