I'm starting my first treatment the day after tomorrow. I have two boys that live at home with me; they are 17 & 11. I also have a daughter away @ college in Boston. With the boys in school, it seems like they are always coming down with something this time of year... between a cough, the sniffles or a sore throat. Thankfully, I rarely got sick. I was always a true believer in "Airborne". As soon as I would feel a slight ache or pain as a sign of something coming on, I would take "Airborne" and would feel better the next day. My oncologist told me I can't take that. I'm scared to death! I know the normal washing of our hands, and spraying Lysol around the house to keep germs at bay, but are there any other tidbits on how to keep from getting sick with kids around? My older son just complained of a sore throat, my little guy has the sniffles, and I'm feeling something coming on myself. Will this stop me from getting my first treatment? UGHH... so much to think about, my head hurts!
