Pf, I hope Shrek's surgery goes well.

Addie, I hope you get out of your funk and they are able to help you at the doctor's.

PF, they always say that colds, pneumonia, bronchitis, are NOT caused by being out in the cold with only a sweater. In fact, I've heard that you CAN be bundled up too much. DH wears a summer jacket all winter and rarely gets sick.

What is the difference between walking pneumonia and regular pneumonia?
Walking Pneumonia you are still able to function even though you are very sick. Regular pneumonia, you can barely sit up on your own.

Kayelle, this is so close to you - you and SousChef must be glued to the TV this morning!
Yes, we woke up to the news Cheryl..it happened about 15 miles from us.

The terrible train wreck that happened in Chatsworth seven years ago and killed 25 people, nearly had my Sous Chef on it. His train was going to be the train after that one. I was horrified that he may have gotten off from work earlier, and been on that one. I was shaking like a leaf until he called me. He knew many of the people on that doomed train.

Like Munky and PF, I seem to have caught what I call "the crud." I can't seem to shake it (started on Feb 6th). Went to my dr last week. She gave me an inhaler. The muscles in my shoulders and my ribcage hurt so bad---I'd cough until I would get the dry heaves and nothing was clearing from my chest. The "puffer" has moved this along quite nicely. Now all that lovely "gunk" is coming out. Enough already! I haven't been this sick in years. Thought I had bronchitis or walking pneumonia (the other terms for "the crud").

CW, I hope you feel better soon. Maybe you need a cup of my Aunt T's tea. She would use plain Lipton, or whatever bagged tea we had at home, with a little lemon, a little honey, and enough whiskey that you had best get into bed before you start drinking it! Again, I hope you shake that bug - the Girls need you.

Addie and cws, hope you both feel better very soon.

Princess, glad to hear Shrek's surgery went well.

Kay, I remember that Chatsworth train wreck - you must have been so worried until you heard from Steve. I guess that new collision absorption technology must be working, today's wreck could have been so much worse.

Thank you Carol.
Were all getting better.It's been one virus after another around here since December.My P/M Dr wasn't happy to hear that the clinic that I was referred to a week earlier refused to start me on antibiotics at the time.Knowing strep throat and upper respitory infections were going through my house.I was already showing signs something was going on with me.

The antibiotics and cough meds with codeine have been knocking me out.
At least all the goobers are going away.I'll be up and back around soon enough.My guys are starving.They say they will mow lawns for dinner.LOL!!!
Hey, they might even travel South and shovel snow for someone...Anyone!!!
