Out here in Californialand we have a virus.  It is called synctial respiratory virus.  I am always very careful not to catch viruses that attack my lungs.  But I have gotten this one.  Our good friends were over for new year’s eve.  One of them had the virus.  Now John and I both have it.  We like to share with our friends but not this.

 Yesterday, we celebrated Christmas part 2 with our kids.  We told them that they should stay away from me.  But, you know, it’s hard.  I wanted to get hugs from everyone.  I am really hoping that no one gets sick.  Sarah told me she is already not feeling well but while that’s possible, it isn’t possible that I gave the virus to her.  It just doesn’t happen that quickly.

On Tuesday we head off to Marco Island for our winter sojourn.  I am sure that everyone on the plane will be sorry that we are on the same plane with them.  But airlines make it impossible to change your plans.  I guess we will just have to try to isolate ourselves.

Or maybe we will be all better!  I have been taking Air Borne to try to boost my immune system and I have been eating in a healthy manner so perhaps by Tuesday I will be sympton free!

Every time I get a respiratory infection I think the Grim Reaper is standing in the wings.  Bad lungs are what have gotten a lot of the people in my family.  I feel like I walk around with a number on my jersey.
