So the other major downside of working with both the hospitalized elderly and the school age outpatients is that I have been catching pretty much every cold that has gone around. Flu (despite the flu shot), URIs, head colds... I have had enough! It is pretty hard to time your hospital treatments around the 90 minutes that dayquil is working, and then I had to take a backseat far away from my medically fragile kids. Is my immune system ever going to catch up with this environment?
