Just gave him a backrub, and he fell asleep.

3. Mrs. Venation is taking very good care of me.
Poor Paddy. Give him my love and a big hug, will you please?

BTW, Tony, congratulations on your nomination. You rock! How is your face/eye healing? Gonna get an eyebrow stud to hide the scar? ;)

7. Thank you very much!
I'll give him a hug when he next wakes up, and tell him it's from you.

I got the stitches out yesterday, and the scar will be hidden in my eyebrow, thank God. :)

Lemonade seems to be the preferred beverage, though.

Hope padraig gets better soon and that you don't get it, too. :hi:

11. Wish I had somebody to take care of my single self...*moan*
Edited on Fri Jan-23-04 06:48 PM by nu_duer
worst case of flu I've ever had, will it ever end?

fever, chills, horrible "smelly" cough, weak, achy muscles, no energy, stuffy head, cloudy mind...ugh
-

antibiotics. some tussin syrup, ibuprofen, caugh drops, runny nose med, Diet RC Cola, and for some reason, a lot of hot baths...

How long does this damned thing last?

:(

(edited to remove part about not having insurance and therefore getting a perscription of anitbiotics from a relative - because that's illegal and I surely would rather take my chances than to break any law ;) wouldn't want to leave the wrong impression)

15. No insurance. I am so sorry.
I don't know how long it lasts, but be careful, please. Talk to people around you, ask their opinions, and remember Jim Henson. He died of pneumonia because he didn't get care--didn't think he was that sick.

"smelly cough" -- my sisters & I call it "musty-dusty." Blech.

18. She's right!
Take your temperature, and if it gets over 102, call a doctor or go to the emergency room. It could be a secondary infection.

19. Thanks BV and CL
If this thing isn't on the way out, or gets worse, over the weekend, I'll see a doc, but I'm hopeful the antibiotics and vitamin dosing is starting to have a effect.

Dangit, I thought I'd gotten thru the flu season unscathed.

There sure is a down side to being single when you're sick tho, imho. I'm gonna have to find myself somebody to run ragged before the next time - :evilgrin:
