Getting well (I hope)

Hopefully I am on the mend. Jim talked me into going to the doctor today. One of the things that the doctor brought up was that it was possible my pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine had worn off and that that could be why I had a cough. I asked him if I needed a booster and when I said that my last tetanus shot (which is part of the same combo vaccine) was as an undergraduate he went ahead and had them give me a PDT (Which I think is pertussis, diphtheria, and tetanus). He said it wouldn't help this time but perhaps help some other time. So I guess this is a reminder that even as adults we need to think about getting the occasional booster shot.

We are all still sniffing and coughing. I had to pick up Rachel from school today for a sore throat. If it's still really sore tomorrow, we're going to the dr. for a strep test. There are at least two cases in her class. But we're all really sick of being sick.

Well, I heard that the flu and strep throat are both going around
