    Hi All,

    Not having a good run, battled a colf/flu thing for over a week, thought i was starting to get better yesterday then crashed hard today with severe dizziness and breathing issues (was like having the rug pulled out from under me ugh). Doc says "rageing sinus, throat & chest infection". Now on antibiotics and hope to turn a corner in a day or so. Spending most of my time at bed & sofa lately, will get back into my emails and APUG support as soon as possible. Thanks

    Sean

    Sean,

    I hope you are feeling better soon. However when that happens there are two Labrador Retrievers here who would like to discuss your sick as a dog analogy.

    Is the Dog Flu another mutation of the whole flu craze?
    I sure hope we don't have too many other animal variations as it starts to be more and more difficult to find edible meat that doesn't sneeze or cough.
    May you survive this illness with as much of your internal organs and sanity intact as is humanly possible.

    We all seem to have something over here as well. Maybe it's an internet virus.

    Take it easy, get plenty of rest (the best you can) and drink as much water as you can. Don't worry about upgrades, everything is just fine, these things take time, that's the best nature can offer. The antibiotics take some time to kick in, until then go easy and take care.

    well, after 6 days of antibiotics have gone backwards again (mainly with my chest), today they started me on a course of cipro. Hope this knocks it out in a couple days :/
    I've gotten caught up a bit but still a lot to do.

    Thanks,
    Sean

    It may take some time, look for smaller improvements and the rest will come in time, after all the body is complicated. It sounds like you have a good doctor and the first treatment is not always the one that does the trick. It's a drag for sure feeling under the weather and wanting to get working but take it slow and don't over do it.

    You are in our thoughts here and everything seems to be working just fine on the site. Take care and get all the rest you can.
