My doctor has a separate waiting section for sick patients, but I’m pretty sure I picked up this flu from all that coughing while waiting around last Friday in the lab.

I sat there with a paper towel over my face and tried as best I could not to breathe deeply. I made faces at those coughing people, too. Lot of good *that* did.

Right. Escalator handrails. Anything the general public touches. Kroger’s has handy wipes for the grocery carts.

We both carry germ killing hand spray and we use it!

After Mass, I make him use his hand spray. He has not be able to go to Mass for well over a week and that’s upsetting to him. He goes every day.

You probably did catch something there with all of that coughing going on.
The other thing that I won’t do is read anything in a waiting room except for my blackberry.

Our pharmacy still delivers anywhere in the county. I’ve known my Dr to make a house call or two but only in dire situations.

We still have young men who carry our groceries to the car and help us load.

Nothing like a small town.

We are both meticulous hand washers, and I have taught him to never touch his face after touching the hand of another or a shopping basket, grocery cart, etc. That’s how common colds are easily spread.

**************************

Exactly. I'm usually here, and am very careful about avoiding germs, but if Mr. t isn't, it makes little difference.

At the same time, it's my understanding that viruses can spread just by touching a piece of paper that someone else, who was ill, had touched.

Had to be from that lab. Coughing, hacking people, blowing noses, and nowhere for me to go! The room was large enough, so I sat far away from all of them, but air born germs travel.

That really stinks. This is why the old system worked.

I think our local pharmacy, (locally owned) delivers, and it’s a little over a mile from here. All I need to do is get properly dressed, but that requires a shower or a bath and right now I don’t have the energy. I will have to make it my mission for sometime tomorrow.

You’re right. Once saliva or other bodily fluids are aerosolized, they are much more likely to gain a foothold and infect.

“Service” is a dying art. My M-i-L lived in a tiny town and the local grocery still delivered. At least the did in the 90’s.

All you need is a robe, or a pair of pajamas, or a sweatshirt and sweatpants. Then put on a baseball cap. Believe me, whoever makes the delivery doesn’t care what you’re wearing.
