    Good Morning, although it's waaaaaaaaaaaay past my bedtime!

    Thanks for starting the thread, SueB! Glad the shift wasn't too bad, now get some rest!!!

    Spent the afternoon at the beach, and got home from around 11:15, have been vegging and downloading piccys into puter. I put three images in Members Gallery, the sunset was gorgeous tonight! Had a nice walk on the beach, the temp was perfect: not too hot, and with a cooling breeze. Water temp wasn't bad on the feet, when the waves caught me as I walked. Nice, nice day to be at the beach. Kids played with their boogie boards . . . no dead sea lions washed up on shore, either, which was good.

    See you all in the morning! -- D

    Ugh!! Some advice to y'all that I obviously didn't take as seriously as I should have.

    ~Tuesday, I had a patient to visit in a local LTC community. There were big signs all over about the Noro Virus. Asked if my patient had any symptoms, was told no, and completed my assessment, treatment and med orders.

    By Thursday afternoon, I had such abdominal cramps I couldn't stand it. Vomiting up absolutely gallons, along with massive diarrhea. As well as a headache, chills and generalized miserableness.

    Let me tell you - diarrhea and vomiting at the same time is not only not a pretty sight, but it is impossible to do both in the same bowl, at the same time.

    By Friday I was so miserable there was no way I could work, and finally remembered my mom recommending coke syrup for n/v, so my daughter went out and bought me Pepsi and Coke. Ah.........the only thing I've been able to keep down.

    Saturday was better, but my diet still consist of Pepsi and Coke. Now that it is Sunday, it is starting to get better and think I may actually attempt to eat today.....later anyway.

    After this experience, I may start getting like Howard Hughes - so paranoid I won't shake anyone's hand or touch anything without gloves on. Not a fun way to spend a long weekend, let me tell ya. :uhoh21:

    Oh, BTW, Good Sunday Morning to y'all. Now let's all go and wash our hands!

    Oh weezie - I've been sick like that and wanted to die. Once was food poisoning.

    Glad you are feeling a bit better.

    Here at work - the ER is hopping with results of too much partying at the fair.

    We are not hopping down here though - just 3 patients.

    Stayed too long again at the fair last night - and had a great tri-tip sandwich.

    Looking forward to some days off.

    I didn't see the announcement about Roy except on this thread so I am sending a big hug and congrats to Roy!!
