Going viral.


Upper respiratory infection – viral; aka “cold”.   UGH

“The common cold generally involves a runny nose, nasal congestion, and sneezing. You may also have a sore throat, cough, headache, or other symptoms.”


Yep.  I have that runny-nose-scratchy-throat-sneezing-and-coughing-so-you-can’t-sleep thing.  I held it at bay until about 11:30 pm Christmas night.  We fought.  It won.

I look like Rudolph, but sound like Herr Bergermeister.  Bleh.

We actually had to have a sign like this (I just got it from google-images) on our front door in Des Moines, Iowa when my brother Tim and I had Scarlet Fever in the 1960s.

One thought on “Going viral.

  1. Scarlet fever is much more common among children aged 5 to 15 years than other people. It used to be considered a serious childhood illness. However, modern antibiotics have made it a much less threatening disease. If left untreated scarlet fever can sometimes lead to serious conditions that affect human organs, including the heart and kidneys.**”^
