Bringing back colds from across the country

My husband and I have both been sick all week. He had an upper respiratory infection when we flew home nine days ago, which made his ears hurt on the plane. When we landed he could not hear out of one ear, but it opened up the next day. Two days later I came down with cold symptoms, and they got worse before they got better.

I've stayed in most of the time since then except for picking up the mail and walking the dog. The weather had been cold and exerting myself outside brings on painful coughing spells. The good news is that we are finally feeling better.
