Just in time for swimsuit season


*groans*

Oh, Dumplings.  I have the stomach flu.  It came on quite suddenly overnight and I've spent the morning trying to keep my insides from escaping to the outside.  Posting will be light (oh hell, probably nonexistent) over the next day or so.

I will miss you all more than Brad Pitt misses solitude.

Weak pats on the derriere,

Raina

I do feel sympathy for you, I really do -- but green with envy is more like it (to understand this schadenfreude you have only to refer to my recent Nero post on trimming the phat.)
But in all seriousness, hope your insides get sorted soon and do return to us as soon as possible.
The quip about Brad is priceless, btw.
Cheers, Alcira

Whew, thought you were gonna say that was your doc and that you shaved his chest hair! Drink plenty of fluids and read lots of junk, watch bad TV and feel better soon!

That sucks puking over and over again is misery. Don't know if everyone else does this but random things pop into my head when I have my head in the toilet. Potato! Chalk! then it follows with me crying and promises of me being nicer if the holy man himself makes it all go away. True story. Anyone else?

Wish you a fast recovery.

Aww Raina, feel better babycakes.

I see your sense of humor remains intact. Otherwise I would really worry.

I wish I were there to apply a cold compress and some motherly love. Feel better R-nut.

xxoo-n.

Oh, I'm so sorry - to me, there's nothing worse than that. Take care of yourself.

I like your photo. Does he make housecalls, I wonder?

Stomach flu is the WORST. EVER.

So sorry to hear you are suffering -- wishing you a speedy recovery!

Also: pedialyte is your friend.

*** Raina, I THINK that, if you stare long enough at "Mr. Chest", you WILL feel better... MUUUUCH better... and pretty quickly, too!!! (That pic makes ME actually WANT to get back on the treadmill today!!!)...

You'll be missed~ just hope you are up n' about n' feeling "normal" (such as it IS! Grins!) S*O*O*N!!!

Healthy hugs,

"more than brad pitt misses solitude"

i think puking makes you even funnier.

Robin said...

So glad illness does not interfere with your serious and academic nature.

If I were closer I would come over and hold your hair for you. Have some ginger ale and read trashy gossip mags. Feel better soon!

The Zhush said...

Agree with Jenny! AND...this reminds me of the Sex and the City quote..something like "I'm only a stomach flu away from my old skinny jean's size". Feel better!

David said...

As you know all sorts of sickness swept through our house...its the worst. Wishing you much sleep and a speedy recovery.
