From the Sick Bay

Me: I am so sick.

G: You've got the flu.

Me: No, I don't think so. I'm just throwing up, etc*. And that's gotten better. I think this is like a stomach flu.

G: Well, that's the flu, isn't it?

Me: No, if you have the flu you have a fever, and it lasts a week. I already feel better than I did this morning.

G: Mmmm. OK.

Me: I do have body aches, though. My hip is killing me.

Both of us: TOXIC SYNOVITIS!

Me: Naw, I can walk on it. I took some Aleve and that helped.

G: Throwing up, body aches? I think you have the flu.

Me: Naw, I don't have a fever. I bet I'm better by tomorrow.

A few hours later, I sit here, more or less upright, not throwing up (or otherwise purging my body of every possible ounce of liquid, if you know what I mean). But now I have a fever. I hate it when he's right.

*If you know what I mean.

Feel better. That Toxic Synovitis is a killer.

Sorry you're not feeling well and hope it doesn't spread because you will be the one cleaning up the mess. Keep pushing the fluids and rest when you can.

I love your understatement. What you've got is the very definition of hellish misery. I do hope you take this rare opportunity to take it easy - milk it!

Take care, pal.

Are you still sickly or have you beaten the germ infestation?
