Jilda the trooper

I've done everything right this flu season. When I went to the grocery store, I pulled my hand inside my sleeve, and used my cuff to touch door handles, and I used Lysol wipes to disinfect the handles of shopping carts and other surfaces.
If I heard someone coughing, or saw someone that looked feverish, I turned on a dime and headed the other direction.
I took handfuls of vitamins, got plenty of sleep, and ate my Wheaties. But last Thursday evening before we headed to the beach on Friday, I caught a nasty head cold.
Jilda was a trooper. She went above and beyond to ensure I had a good time on my birthday-beach trip.
I worried that with her compromised immune system that's she'd catch the crud, but it appeared that she'd dodged the bullet and escaped unbugged.........until yesterday evening.
I heard her start sneezing before she went to work. I thought maybe something had upset her allergies, but as it turns out, she now has a nasty head cold.
Things like this have a tendency to go south on her quickly so we contacted the doctor and he called her in a script this morning. She's felt like da da all day, but she's been through so much the last few years, she doesn't complain.
She doesn't feel that good here, but her hair looks great, don't you think.


  1. I hope that nasty cold leaves Jilda ASAP.
    Yes; her hair looks wonderful. Great cut. I always notice things like that.
    I have "crappy" (pardon that term) hair, and I am always so envious of those with beautiful hair.
    She is beautiful, too.
    Feel better soon, Jilda!

  6. Her hair looks really great here Rick, I hope she feels better soon... :)

  7. Oh boy, Jack and I had that same crud....I so sympathize. I hope Jilda is better soon. She looks like a teenager in that pic! Love her haircut! Both of you take care and try to enjoy the weekend.

  8. Yes, and I hope she feels better soon.

  9. She looks better than I do on a good day! :-) Since I work with school kids, I'm generally sick Oct and Nov and pretty much immune to everything by Christmas. Hope you both get back up to strength and feel better!

  10. She looks beautiful! I hope she's feeling better soon.
