Laurie when will this all finally end for you!?!
I'm so sorry.
Not to try to lighten you up too much, but you know me, I gotta.....
If you kicked your own knee would it learn to behave?
Just a thought.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

Sorry to hear that you have golden staph Laurie. I have had that two or three times and it isn't pleasant. They have always hospitalised me which I think makes it even more unpleasant! I am sure that they have caught it in time and the AB's will knock it on its head. Don't make yourself too warm at home as it just prolongs it. Fans, sheets, cool wet flannels are the go. (There are never enough blankets to make you warm!) It should break your fever quicker - well that was the thinking last time I had it. As Babe said, keep your chin up. We are behind you.
Too many restaurants, not enough time...

Right there with you Laurie. God's blessing for a very quick reecovery.

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

Thanks Everyone. I really appreciate all your support and prayers. I am off for my second round of antibiotic. I had another mostly sleepless night....I thought those were over with! Anyways, hopefully I can nap when I get home.
Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!

Awwww... Laurie!

Laurie.... wow. I had no idea you've been through so much... (I have been "away)

I send you heartfelt prayers for a quick recovery... I have never had complications such as those that you speak of, but I do have a tip for you, if you're interested, since you're taking so many antibiotics...

It's called "Bio-K" and it helps to regulate intestinal functions. It has 50 BILLION fresh, live active cultures (L.acidophilus & L.casei), which, since you're on heavy doses of antibiotics, you'll definitely be needing to keep the healthy bacteria in good numbers and your body in balance. It comes in a refrigerated form, in a little bottle, and you drink it. Their number is 1-800-593-2465, if you want to locate a distributor near you. Ask your MD about it or check their website: Bio-K Plus - Probiotic - Beneficial bacteria - Regulates intestinal functions

I don't mean to offer unsolicited advice - I just want you to GET BETTER SOON, and I know from personal experience that this stuff works...

Thinking of you... and sending good wishes,


Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away... and you have their shoes.
