Last week, make that two weeks ago, I was supposed to go in and volunteer at Children's. That didnt happen. I woke up on Wednesday morning with a bit of a scratcy throat, and a little case of the sniffles. I didnt think much of it. The next morning I woke up, still sick, a little more groggy, a nasty cough. Immediately I called Sandy at Volunteer Services and told her that I wasnt going to be coming in that day, at my orientation they told us that no matter how small the sickness, we needed to be aware of it and distance ourselves from the children, becuase some of them have extremely weak immune systems, and what may seem like nothing to us could have extreme effects of the children. Sandy was very happy that I had called well in advance of my volunteer time, and hoped that I would get better soon. Instead of volunteering on Thursday, I took a four hour nap- and the cold was gone by Saturday.
