Oh YUCK. I brought a sickness home from BrainShare. One of my SysOps was sick the last couple of days of BrainShare and now many of us that were around her are sick......and your mom has caught it from me. I'd suggest no kids come home in the next few days because this is a nasty one...cough/headache/head stuffed with pudding.....etc. My ribs hurt now when I cough. The SysOp that had it last Thursday still has it pretty bad so I'm not holding out for getting better tomorrow. So.....you medical people.....what's the best thing to do for a viral infection like this? Watch movies and wait for it to pass? (I already know what to do if it's bacterial)

Yeah, this stuff hit like a ton of bricks!!! I haven't had anything so nasty for a long time. I felt like I was going to pass out, just from being on my feet last night. Steer clear of here!

not much you can do besides get lots of rest and keep yourself hydrated and well nourished. Watching 24 helps time pass!!

I was afraid that's what you would say is the treatment.

Well, Kim can eat. It hasn't effected his appetite. But mine has hit me differently. Nausea. I haven't eaten more in the last 2 days than I could have easily eaten in one meal. But on the bright side, I am in the 149 zone now, weight wise which is great (I used to be 162 1 year ago). So hey, I guess I might as well enjoy the fringe benefits of being sick, right?

Oh, yes. I thought about watching 24, but Chad took it a while back, so not an option. But we got a whole lot of other movies that I can watch. But so far, I just have done 1. I figure I am gonna feel yukky no matter what I am doing, so I have been working on picture books and geneology. They don't require much energy.

Ouch. Sounds pretty gross. How 'bout I'll avoid your place for a little while. Sorry you're feeling gross. My remedy is to eat more kumquats and Crasins. Not that it will necessarily help you more than other things. But they taste really good. And that advice was free of charge.

Thanks Brett. But don't quit your night job for the prospect of playing guru at the top of the mtn, yet:)
