Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Posted: 24/11/2014 at 12:58

I usually have a pretty good immunity system, and it appears to have cleared in 24 hours, but mum started at 1am yesterday and is still ill.  She is still on liquids only. I have to say I couldn't get comfortable in any position yesterday. Imodium, Buccastem , and paracetamol seemed to have sorted most symptoms.

HELLO FORKERS!

I might have been premature starting the boil washing. Looks like OH is starting with it.

Outbreak of Norovirus at Kings Mill Hospital, Mansfield.

Mum has it, I have it,and OH has just started going nauseous and complaining that his stomach feels like its been kicked by a donkey, so I guess he's about to start with it. Pretty inevitable I suppose. We should probably put a big red cross on the front door to keep away marauding cold callers.

Our aussie lodger decided to stay elsewhere last night, for that reason.

Well I spent yesterday between the bed and the toilet. I phoned mum to say I couldnt do the hospital run, and she had been the same. We assumed we had food poisoning from the buffet at the party, but no one else was affected. By lunch time I figured Norovirus as I ached all over as well. My sister did the hospital trip. Lots of signs up at the hospital warning of norovirus. One ward in lockdown because of it. It looks like we picked it up in EAU on Friday.

My dad thought he should go home to look after mum!

My sister opened mums back door, threw a large pack of dettol wipes through, and legged it.

I'm feeling a lot better, about to start boil washing all towels and sheets and  bleaching all surfaces.

 

It's the weekend people lighten up!!!!

I hope you are on the mend soon,marion. Did you have a flu jab.?

I have only had flu twice. Both times it came on very quickly, and I spent three days in bed with every joint aching. Painkillers, manuka honey and lemon juice helped me.

I hope you have someone local to call on if necessary.

Something of an apology.

I think posting local events would be a good idea. It may help gardeners to get in touch with other like minded people in their area, instead of feeling isolated.

My niece and great niece aren't going, otherwise we could get five generations of the female line in one photo, since I am a great aunt too.

Is this an escaped pet (or a boas dinner) or a natural occurring albino?
