“I just felt like I was hit by a train,” said Fairbanks. “But I think I only have really mild symptoms. I feel like I have a head cold combined with the flu. Sounds decently manageable, that’s good. “

“Hi, honey, it’s so good to meet you,” said Aniston. “I just have to say, God bless you and all of you who do what you do. I don’t even know how to express my gratitude for everything you do, putting your health at risk and all that. You are just phenomenal. “
