For the second time this winter my Type O son and I have had respiratory viruses. The first we picked up Thanksgiving weekend. The second he had right before and I had right after Christmas.
I ran fever for about 24 hours. I feel fine now except for a sore spot on the back of my throat and a dry cough.
My husband and daughter are gloating that Type As are better, because neither of them has been sick so far this winter.
I found the NAP article on Blood Types and Flu very interesting in this regard. It seems that Type As do have something to gloat about during flu season. I am e-mailing the article to both my parents and my husband's. If you haven't read it yet, here is the link.
For the first two nights I had this virus, my husband slept in my son's room. He was out of town with friends for a basketball tournament. Last night my son was back home. I didn't want to expose my husband to the sore throat or the cough, so I slept on the sofa.
I didn't mind the sacrifice, but if I have to watch my husband and daughter do another Type A victory dance, I may start breathing germs in their direction.
