Ed Pratt: I was careful. Then I felt something coming on, and it was more than a cold — positive

It’s mid-morning on Tuesday and I’m starting to feel a little off. Actually, I had felt a little different Monday night, but it could have been anything.

But now, I’m not right. It feels like a cold is coming on. Yep, that’s all I need is a cold or worse, the flu, I thought.

As the day wore on, I began to feel worse. I considered going home to get some rest, but that’s not really in my nature. By now it’s mid-afternoon and I think I can last the day. I made it!

Just before leaving, though, I started to feel a little feverish.
