Well, I caught it

For a little while, my son has had a cough. Now, it looks as though I've caught it. As much as I don't like getting sick and didn't really want to catch it, I figured that I probably would sooner or later. It's not a pleasant thing. It seems like a lingering kind of thing. Looks like I'll be drinking a lot of tea. Hopefully, we can get rid of this cough pretty quickly. Such is life sometimes.

It does happen, especially when you have sick kids around. I will definitely try to rest and feel better soon.

It is no fun to be sick when one has to take care of children . All the best for a prompt recovery.

I don't think many people like getting sick. I sure don't.

@dodo19 When I was a kid, I was happy to be a little sick because I was allowed not to go to school.

@LadyDuck I usually had to be really sick to stay home. But that didn't happen too often.

When a family member caught with disease, probability for us the bacteria and virus be infected to us is high.

Exactly. If someone is the family gets sick, chances are other members will get sick as well. It happens.

we can never evade it, it really hard to avoid your own family.

Both of my kids are sick right now with colds, but on the tail end. Knock on wood, so far I seem to be doing fine. My daughter's birthday is on Thursday, so I'm really hoping I stay healthy at least through next weekend. I hope you feel better soon, and that you and the kids return to strong health quickly!

@dodo19 I am off this whole week from work, so if I do happen to come down with something, I can lay around and rest and recover without having to worry about work!

Hard not to catch something like this. I finally caught a cold this year after not getting one for several years. Ya, such is life.

I hope yours clears quicker than mine. My darling granchildren shared their cold. Now five days after the onset....I'm still a coughing, snotty mess. I have t been able to go to visit my father in hospital for a week. I'm hoping tomorrow will be better.
