i thought i had managed to avoid it .. but apparently not.  maybe that is why i have felt so weird and cranky for the past few days!!  I KNEW something was coming ... was hoping it was  a respiratory bug ....
 
had lunches packed, kids in the car, on the way out the door .... lost my breakfast.  oh LORD .... i know it's gonna get worse before it gets better ... come on 24 hours ... hurry by ... and please GOD don't let my kids get this!!!!!!

I'm so sorry you contracted this.  Several people I work with have had it.  I hope you start feeling better very soon!

Check out your job post.  I put a recipe in that helps with nausea and vomiting.  It really does work, too!

I am so sorry that you caught the crud. I hope that this next 24 hours goes by fast for you and that it goes away. Will be thinking of you.

Oh dear LORD .. I've got it AGAIN. Was sick on MONDAY, better past 2 days, woke up at 10:30 tonight SICKER than before. ugh. i have graduated from nausea on Monday to full on - grab a bucket 'cause both ends are competing for the most dramatic misery!!! 

whipping up a batch of Sherrine's magic belly potion right now ...wow that stuff is sweet! 

please GOD .. I have not been to work since I left early on Thursday afternoon ... and now feel the worst I have so far.   I know  a flare will come from this .. but honestly .. that sounds heavenly compared to the way I feel right now.  I'll take all over body aches and pain vs. stomach flu ... oh yes, I would.

oh bless your heart! sorry ... i used to work in the radiology dept of our local hospital and felt so bad for the folks coming in ... always looked like they had had a wild night.

i heard the test itself wasn't bad ... the prep was the worst.

i took a phenegran, but barfed it up 15 minutes later ... so doubt it was down long enough to work. so now i am thinking about gettin my blankie and sleeping on the bathroom floor tonight ... if i sleep at all. ugh .... this is rough stuff!

hope all goes well for you (no pun intended) and that tomorrow is a breeze (again .. no pun. well, maybe a little one)

will be thinking of you!

Zofran is the bomb! Disolves! Learned that when I went into radiation and chemotherapy. Treated agressive. Starting chemo next month again...

maybe that is what i need to ask my doctor for. oh lord .. every hour since 12 ... both ends ... i feel like i am going to die, but it can't last MUCH longer this intensely, can it?

Sorry you're starting chemo again. When we found out my mom had a cancer a few years ago, she just needed radiation. so I don't have a lot of experience with chemo, but I'll be thinking good strong healing thoughts for you.

Yucky, yucky, yucky, sorry your going through this again Do-over. Desiree, sorry your going through the radiation and chemo. If you have never had colon surgery believe me the prep you have to do for scope is a walk in the park in comparison.
 
luv and hugs
