    Getting stir crazy in quarantine.

    Getting sick not much fun. :( I'm holed up in bedroom by myself to limit chance of getting the rest of family sick, and end up trading illness. Tons of fluids and soup.

    I've been doing much the same the last couple of days. Got an extra "Christmas Gift" from my daughter. At least she's fine now. Lots of Hall's cough drops.

    That's what I'm trying to avoid, vet.

    Send out or have somebody go to a Chinese restaurant, and get some Hot and Sour soup. This stuff is GREAT! And between the hot peppers, garlic, ginger and vinegar, it will remedy any cold known to man.
    I believe it would cure death.

    Have the family get you an Airsoft. That way you can practice shooting coins off your dresser while you are recovering.

    Watching the pinstripe bowl from NYC. What is all that white stuff on the field?

    I feel your pain my friend. I spent a full month in hospital isolation when I was 25, and diagnosed with kidney failure and an MRSA infection of my ankle from walking into a rowing machine in a hallway without a working light one night 3 days earlier. It's miserable being not only restricted to a small room, but not seeing anyone else who isn't in a mask, gown, and gloves. That was abck in 1996, too, before we had nice, affordable laptops and nearly universal internet access. I watched a lot of Wild Wild West on TV.

    I am so sorry.

    The stomach bug just ran through our family. Both kids and I got it; husband miraculously escaped. And that was good, because he had to take a day off work when I couldn't get out of bed. A preschooler and baby projectile vomiting all over the house is no fun (except for the dogs).

    We have a great little real Italian restaurant by us. Pasta fagioli kept me going the whole duration.

    im lucky that I never had to spend time like that in a hospital. Spent six weeks after a back surgery at home though, but I at least had a laptop.

    Wow! I'm surprised you lived with kidney failure and MRSA in 1996. You're really lucky.
