First Post Sinus Surgery Cold

So, I work with kids everyday....lots of them. Holding little hands, hugs, and of course tons of smiles are some of the fringe benefits of my job. With those fringe benefits come a few thousand negatives. I'm referring to germs! Lots of them! actually an ever abundant, never ending supply of them. I eat right, exercise, take vitamins, get enough sleep, and tend to be overall pretty healthy, however, this year I can't seem to go more then a month without catching something. Now mind you my immune system is probably a bit compromised due to the steady progression of the allergens I'm being injected with weekly (allergy shots) but whatever the reason....this is all just a very long way of saying that I'm sick AGAIN!

Now I'm hoping that it is just a cold. I have been working pretty closely with a little boy who was sick the other day. So I'm pretty sure it was him who shared his cooties with me. The question really is....will it run its course like a normal cold, or will it turn into a sinus infection. The worst part of it all is that I leave for Maui Hawaii on Friday for 2 weeks. I so wanted to feel good while I was there, to enjoy my vacation. Instead it looks as if I might be enduring a summer cold.

Please let my sniffles be swift, like maybe gone by Friday!.....PLEASE!!!!

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you that it's just a normal cold and it doesn't turn into more on you. Enjoy your trip to Maui! Next time we go to Hawaii that is where we would like to go! There and Alaska are the next big trips we would like to take, and here you will be in both places in th same day! But both of those are a LONG way from New York. Enjoy your trip and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you.

    How is your mother doing?

    Hi Brandie, hopefully you will get over your cold quickly. By the way, people who use Neti pots swear by them. I just recently purchased one. Its supposed to really cut back on colds so you might want to give one a try. Enjoy your Hawaii vacation--post lots of pics! Mary

    Hopefully you'll be feeling great in no time!
    Have a wonderful, warm vacation! I am so jealous. I hope to get there one day soon. New Hampshire is also pretty far from Hawaii.
