    Hello Everyone,
    You may have noticed my lack of posts over the past 3 days, sorry for that. I am getting rather frustrated here... I have been sick again and as I type this I have a 101.1 fever (and honestly all I want to do is sleep ).
    At first they thought I had phenonia but the X-ray was clear. Now it is thought to be virial as I had completed a full dose of Augmentin the day before all the symptoms came charing back.
    I know some of you tried to call me on Saturday - I will get back to you ASAP.
    I hope to be back to my old self very soon..until then Sarah - Reenie - Linda and the rest of the moderators keep things running and to all the new posters I welcome you all and am glad you have found us.
    Best wishes to all...now back to bed.
    Lisa

    Good wishes, Lisa

    Dear Lisa,

    That's way too bad. You were feeling so much better when we talked early in the week. Then, bam, sick again!

    I bet you'd feel better here in our sun--if you want to take some days off and come visit, please do! The spare bed is always made. That's the cure which was used most frequently in the 19th & early 20th centuries, you know, especially for respiratory diseases. The nurses would line patients up outdoors in the sun all day, then bring them in to protect them from "night vapours" at dark.

    Hey! Have you been exposing yourself to those night vapours???

    I'm sending my thoughts your way, Lisa. I hope they help, Pat

            bondage

            Dear Larry,

            I suspect that Lisa is getting up to early ----go go go is her motto.

            Does she need to be locked in her room for a few days to keep her from doing too much?



            Lisa is going to kill me if she reads this and she can get to Chicago fast enough!!!

              You might be right. Sometimes I think that she thinks the only thing that could hurt her is kryptonite or perhaps a teddy bear with a good left hook, and sometimes I think that too, but I'm sure it's not the case. :P

                The cause of my current illness.....
                Asthmatic bronchitis, ear/sinus infection, tonsillitis...and yeh not much of a voice!
                I'm on prednesone,atrovent, antibiotic, nose spray stuff and the purple pill for your stomach...because all the stuff is gonna kill my tummy..or so he said!
                I actually feel a bit better today - the meds are working on my lungs and the fever FINALLY BROKE!! that was the horrible 5 days straight between 100 and 101.2...together with the fact I could not sleep because I was coughing every 2 minutes!
                Last night I slept for a good 2 hours between coughs. That felt greats...
                as for you Larry...kryptonite is for sissys like Superman. :P

                I am locking in the house for several days as my lungs heal up a bit ( it is very cold here now!) I will be online a bit more now...but I WILL be getting my rest as I do not want to do this ever ever again!!!

                Thanks for all the good wishes!
