Sniffling,Sneezing,Coughing,Oh My!

I tried.I really tried.I did everything that I could think of and I still got my husband's cold.The woman above is not me.Actually,she looks better than I do at present.I found her here.In addition to sneezing,sniffling and coughing at times I have a watery left eye and nostril and my back teeth on the left side hurt.With my sweetie Steve it was the right side.That amused us greatly as I told him this last night as we sat on the couch together watching HGTV together.We have been opposites on many things at times so why should a cold be any different(she smiles in amusement).Steve's been a real help since this came on Saturday.He bought burgers from a local fast food place for dinner last night so I would not have to cook(NOT from McDonalds thankfully).We have to babysit again 4 days this week as spring break commenced last Thursday.Not an easy task when we are well but even harder when we are not well.I made up spaghetti while I felt better earlier this morning.Steve very kindly took my soon to be due library stuff back to the library for me a few minutes ago so I would not have to babysit alone in a few minutes.He's such a sweetheart of a guy.Thankfully I slept okay last night.Having my Bi-Pap machine and extra oxygen through an oxygen concentrator help.Steve has sleep apnea as well but his is mild and mine was diagnosed as severe so I am never without the machines at night(or when I nap during the day with Steve and our cat Shadow).Steve was able to sleep without his during his cold which is nearly gone now.Thank you Jesus!It's cold and windy but partly sunny here today so I will focus on the sun(the Son!)and try to ignore the longing for warmer temps and the sometimes painful face. :-)As always,prayer is appreciated.
Blessings to all~Sharon

Take care of yourself, Sharon. I'm trying to get over the same thing - shared by my husband. I tried to tell him he doesn't have to share everything! ~Adrienne~

I had this same crud and am just now feeling better. I've been sick for nearly 3 weeks! Fortunately my DH didn't get it, but my daughter did. So glad you visited my blog. I see you proofread. I am an editor, so we have something in common!

My husband always shares EVERYTHING TOO! Even the things I don't want him to share with me.
God bless THEM!
Many blessings for a quick recovery.

Hi Brenna!
Glad to see you stopped by and left a comment!This is day 5 for me of this crud.I am hoping it lasts only a week or so like my husband's did.I love proofing work.Never been to school for it but discovered God naturally gifted me that way.Have loved words and books since childhood.Books were like friends to me...Blessings~Sharon
