Damned flu. I've already missed a week at work and I still have a low grade fever so it doesn't look good for going back tonight. Plus I couldn't go to my family's Christmas get-together today. Doc told me Friday he was afraid I was getting pneumonia but my chest was "mostly clear" on the x-ray. I am miserable.

Thank you for letting me rant, now you may continue with your normal activities.

I hope you get to feeling better, being sick during the holidays really sucks.

Week three here....first 10 days are a killer then it just kind of settles into a cold that won't go away. After the full gambit usual your nose will run like a sink.

It's hitting everyone that has a people job.

This years strain is a definate hard one.

Hang in and good luck.

That really sucks. Sorry to hear you're sick, Mark. I didn't get a flu shot this year so I'm really crossing my fingers that I don't get sick. Hang in there and let us know if you need anything.

I hope you get better soon!

This flu has been quite weird. They offered the flu shot at the company. I got it and so far doing OK. However, many people who also took the shot got the flu.

Anyways... do not forget to drink a lot of water or juices.

Cheers!

Is Bacardi rum considered a juice?

Hmmmm Rum's made from sugar cane JUICE

That might work. Better yet, I have some Bombay Sapphire, Gin's made from Juniper berry JUICE. If I drink all the juice I have I won't give a shit how I feel.

I like the way you think.

Dr. Colt's remedy:
Eat everything you can keep down.
Drink all the juice you can stand.
Take every vitamin you have in the house.
Sleep until everyone thinks you're dead.
Take off work two weeks--one to get better and one to screw around when nobody knows you're better.

Hope you're over this soon. Doesn't really seem to be a cure.

Yeah, right. Drink all the "juice" you can and let us know how it goes. Of course, if we do not hear from you after a while we will know what happened...
