Default On the mend

For last week I've been really sick. Started as a normal flu with fever.
Wednesday it moved into my chest and then I went down hill. I have been in and out of the hospital every 4 hours for Ventolin/steroid treatments ever since.
Well this morning the doc said I didnt need that anymore and have a perscription for my own puffer.
42 years old and this is the 2nd perscription I've ever had, 1st one was for beaver fever 10 years ago.

Glad to hear you are on the rebound. Being sick for a week is definitely not fun.

Wow only your second scrip. That'* impressive. Take all the medication, it'* very important. I know some people who don't take it all because they get feeling better and then they relapse even worse.... Good Luck and feel better soon.

Thanks guys, I am feeling better and will take all my meds to the hilt. Actually when I got viral paracardidas(sp) (what I call beaver fever) I only needed meds for one week but carried on for 4 weeks just to make sure I killed the bug.

With all the bed rest over the last week I watched alot of movies, just cleaning up the pile of dvd'* now.
The Chronicles of Riddick
Signs
The fifth element
Forrest Gump
x-men
Alien vs predator
The Core
Bicentennail man
Scorpion King
Master and Commander
The Day After<---------old movie
Indiana Jones trilogy

I have the Flu. Not nearly as bad as you, or some other people I know. I know a couple people that have had it so bad in the last week, they've had to go to the doctor to get an IV of fluids.
