    Hope you feel better RaycelR,
    I've had a sore throat the last few days, But I always get sick the week of an interveiw or P.D. exam. Don't know why.

      The other day I got home and sat down to a few beers. As I polished of the 4th one, a knock sounded at my door. I opened the door to this huge cockroach. It kicked me in the shins and then scurried away. I went to bed.

      Next night I got home and sat down for a few beers, and I hear this knock at the door. I answer, and this cockroach is back, and it punches me in the stomach, and then scurries away.

      Last night, I manage to down one beer when the knock comes. I answer the door, but this time with my pistol, and sure enough, the cockroach is back. Unfortunatley, before I can fire, this thing decks me, breaks my nose and kicks me in the back.

      Well, I manage to get to the hospital, and the doctor asks me what happened. I told him, and he said, "Yeah, there's a real nasty bug going around."

        My wife came home from work sick today. Truly sick, not just sick of work. So far, I have not gotten it nor has my daughter. I tend not to get sick though, which is a good thing.

        I hope that you feel better RaychelR.

          Not really sick, but kinda got an injury nagging me. During firearms re-qualification, while qualifying with shotgun, I had to run and take cover and fire. When I started running, my left achilles tendon started HURTING. I have limped around for about 4 weeks taking anti-inflammatory drugs, stretching, but the sucker still hurts. Went to Dr. today, told him drugs were not working, so he puts my foot in a walking boot to immobilize it for a month, and doubles up on drug strength.

          I guess no reserve deputy action for me for about a month, cause it sure would look funny getting out of the car with this big walking boot on!

          Oh, well, hope everyone else gets to feeling better. I'll survive.

            Does sick of life qualify? My poor H is traveling all over the country, my son can't drive, twice, his rides have forotten him and we've had to pay expensive taxi's to get him back and forth to work. I can't drive because my diabetes is affecting my sight...and I miss my husband a lot when he is gone.
            Thigs got so bad I got a bad case of giant hives yesterday. The Dr. gave me an anti-anxiety pill...I said, FOR HIVES?
            But apparently they were caused by nerves because they are gone now, Life sucks.

                I was a different kind of sick. I had my second operation for the kidney stones yesterday and thankful that it was just outpatient surgery, but OMG, do I feel beat up this morning. I've been a walking zombie since Sunday night because the pain was unbearable, so I pretty much lived on T3's.

                What sucks even more is my doc only did the stone on the left kidney and I have no clue what's to come for the stones on the right because one of them is so large. All I know is there is yet another operation sometime in the very near future. Thank God for medical coverage!

                Forgive the pity party. I'm just tired of feeling this way. I want to feel like *me* again.

                Raychel, I hope you feel better soon. Vitamin C and lots of fluids if it's a cold, if it's a stomach virus, God, I feel for ya even more. Go for the BRAT diet.

                  SO I take it that your stones are too big to be broken up by sound? I had heard that they could use ultasound techology to break up kidney stones so they could be passed more easily.

                  Anywho hope you feel better soon Katey.

                    My doc had a very difficult time breaking up the stone on the left side but did manage to get it. Because the stone on the right is so large (2cm) and in a very difficult place, I don't know what will happen, but probably one of these options:

                    a) he'll try the lithotripsy anyway
                    b) he'll go in with a scope and then laser it
                    c) he'll make an incision in the back and remove them.

                    Like I said before, thank God for medical coverage.

                      I know what you mean about the medical coverage. I am thankful for mine even though I have never had to use it. I do hope that you get better soon and that everything goes the easiest way it can.

                          I'm just getting over being sick. I mean, I was really sick! Coughing up crap, runny nose, raw throat...the works! I even lost my voice! So I know how you guys feel. And like Mike said, there really is a nasty bug going around!

                            I went to the beach when it was raining and I was practically the only one on the shore with my friends. I was running around the beach on the sand in my little shirt and shorts and bare feet in the rain and I got sick from that. Still coughing and sniffing but getting better.

                            I hope you get well soon.

                              OH GREAT! Now I've got it!

                              Which one of you did this??????

                              A video of Mrs. Fish running around on the beach in the earlier post might help things though... [Wink]
