Anyone have a colonoscopy scheduled for tomorrow?  This bug I have is doing a better job than my last prep.  I'll gladly pass it to you. tongue

LOL...I'd take the prep anyday (of course not the Fleet...then I'd take the gastro virus..lol)

Hope you feel better soon.

I hope you're on the nightly Rowasa...and do make sure you consider probiotics..they're realllllly a good thing.

bwahahahaa evil evil stomach viruses!!!!
 
I got one about two weeks ago that just had me screamin at my hubby to take me to the er.
 
Wanna hear something funny? sorta completely disgusting?    It was so bad that I ran to the bathroom to throw up in the toilet and as I was puking I had explosive D and it went all over the bathroom door...   I've NEVER experienced ANYTHING like that before.
 
At the end of the night though I was so dehydrated and exhausted and shaky from blood loss through D that I just wanted to die hahaha.
 
Thank GOD it was over in two days.

Oh poor you!! When it happened to me, I had a pail on my lap while sitting on the toilet...horrible...and all my husband could do was look at me as if to say "I sure hope I don't get it!!"

Oh no! Are you feeling better? Let me tell you...you haven't experienced the tummy bug until your 2 1/2 year old has it. He was so sick he couldn't tell me when he was going to throw up. It wasn't pretty. Luckily he was still in diapers!

Oh yuck! I remember my last flu bug - over a year ago - knock on wood. Miserable. But, unlike many others, I was back at work a day later. Maybe I'm just so used to feeling like YUCK that I thought I was "normal". Or maybe the "normal" peeps are just wussies! :) hehehehe

I hope you feel better soon!
