I've gone and caught a sniffle...

What is it about pregnancy lowering immunity?

I, honestly, was very impressed with myself, until today that is.

My wife, Laura, had caught some sort of sore throat and sniffle virus, most likely from her job of teachin' those little snot nosed... okay, anyway... my point being I was thinking to myself...

*Sniff*

"Wow self! You are doing pretty good. Laura has been sick for three days now and you haven't gotten her bug at all... you must have a good immune system!"

*Sniff*

Well, here I am now at work with a tissue in my hand.

I mean it isn't the flu or anything, but getting a cold, well lets just say it... sucks!

So lets say it all together, will we?

"Get well soon, Eric!"

Aw, Eric, I hope you AND Laura feel better soon! I was always lucky, and my immune system seemed to be boosted with pregnancy. Well, usually. Anyhow, get well soon!

It's simply a precursor of things to come...those little germ-factories they call Daycare, will bring you all sorts of unexpected tummy gurglings and sinus infections!

Rum and coke my man. OH, and throw some lemon in there so Laura doesn't think you're just "having a drink."

You think your imune system is compromised now. Wait until the little champ comes along. And if you plan to have him in day care...fugetaboutit!

Get well soon.
