    :laugh:..... can anyone doubt for a second why I love this child? And she's twice as much fun in person....

    Its true... megots a flu.... there're only 2 reasons I stay home from school #1. Having no voice... 'cause I try to sing anyway (instinctively, like the basses go flat and I sing the right pitch just to see the look of confusion replaced by the look of "Ohhh - that's what's wrong!") and make matters worse #2. When I have a fever and am apt to start an epidemic amongst peeps I love ;)... So B_K is safe for another day (guessing gestation periods and all she may still get it if we were exposed to the same source on Monday..... Don't tell her... psychosomaticism and all ;))

    *thinks to bring a heavier kilt next time*

    Oh! THAT kinda' sick!!! :laugh::laugh::laugh:

    The voice is the first thing to go with the flu... good thing you don't have to perform for the Superbowl halftime or anything! :laugh2:

    Here are a few helpful pointers from Doctor G! ;)

    There are different strengths of flu: The most common is least serious, even if it leaves you feeling like death warmed up. Expect to be floored for three to five days (followed by a few weeks of fatigue). Stronger flu strains tend to break out every few years, so see your GP if your symptoms are particularly acute. Stronger forms of flu can keep you bedridden for around seven days, and make complications more likely.

    Ditch the antibiotics: Sorry, but they're ineffective against flu, too, plus they weaken your immune system in the long term and should only be taken as a last resort. By all means consult your doctor if the symptoms are unusually severe or if there appear to be complications (i.e. chest pains, rash, or stiff neck). Just don't go thinking they can hand out cure-all pills for the virus itself.

    Get plenty of sleep: Often this is all you'll want to do, and you'd be wise to simply go with it. Just make sure someone's checking in every now and again to make sure you're OK.

    Drink plenty of water: An illness such as flu can leave your fluid levels low, so be sure to have a ready supply of water, or a soft drink of your choice, within easy reach. Eat when you can, too.

    Pain relief is at hand: Muscular ache and a high temperature can be eased by popping a painkiller such as paracetamol or aspirin (always read the manufacturer's guidelines first). If you're taking flu remedies at the same time, make sure you're not overloading on paracetamol.

    Rest up: Flu can leave you feeling exceptionally run down, and it's important not to fight this if you want a swift recovery. So avoid strenuous activity until your strength is back up to speed, because you could find that it floors you.

    See your GP if symptoms persist: Flu that lasts more than a week to ten days deserves some time with your doctor, but don't deny yourself an appointment at any stage if you're concerned for your health.

    The best and fastest way to recovery is recommended you do a combination of this: lay your ass in bed or plant your ass in front of the pc and surf around on Midibuddy for love and support, entertainment and friends who make you laugh your ass off! (Laughter is the best remedy!) :laugh2: :laugh: :wiggle: :laugh2:

    Poor Jean. I think you should fly to a warmer place to speed up your recovery. :)
