UGH...I have called off 3 days this week cause my kids were sick...think the gods would have spared me and not let me catch it....right???? ..wrong---ooooo! UGH, by the middle of my 12 hour shift last night, I was coughing so hard I could hardly breathe and now my VOICE IS GONE (ok maybe my dh would tell you that is a blessing). But man this sucks when you are trying to do patient care and communicate in report! Not to mention, everyone gave me a WIDE berth on the way out (grin). So, who else has caught this respiratory crud, how long is it lasting for you, and can you give me some good oldtime remedies to help me feel better? I am SOOOOOOOOO sick! Off to bed now.
