Hazards of the job...

This is just one of the hazards
of the job...I am surrounded by GERMS! I can
usually protect myself with my kick ass immune
system and some good handwashing, but a
bad one slipped passed me Wednesday and
has had me on the ropes for the last two days.
It started with that "not so easy feeling" and
peaked with and all exits blow-out of epic
proportions! Needless to say it is a good thing I
work in the ER where I got much needed fluids
and meds...and I got to take my IV home for
additional fluids. I also got to leave work 30 min.
early in hopes of not sitting in traffic and being
forced to poop or barf in the car! I would have
left earlier, but due to staffing shortages, I was
forced to stay :o(
Luckily I was only sick for about 36 hours, but now
I feel like a limp noodle. I have no energy and
even less interest in finding any. However, If
I don't get up and around soon, I am going to
develop bed sores. Maybe I will ask Robert
to turn me every couple of hours :o)


  1. Oh, no! That's horrible, but I'm glad you're feeling better!

  2. Glad you are doing a little better, but I bet it is really hard for you to avoid. You do amazing work my friend. Very honorable. Thanks for getting sick on all of our account = )

    Chicken soup, apple juice, and couch - STAT!
