Better your still alive to have a hay season. Hopefully you get over it quickly. There's some nasty strains going around that are proving very tough to fight.

I'll vouch for nasty strains...
Last year I spent 2 weeks in the Hospital, 8 days in ICU... :shock:
Went from nothing to ICU in 72 hours...
And that was on antibiotics!
Respiratory failure, on a bipap while in ICU...
Still on a bunch of respiratory meds...
If you get worse go back for another look see by the doc...
Trust me you will know when it gets worse...
High fever and shaky hands, I could barley hold a water glass before I went to the ER...
Neb every 2 hours was doing jack *censored*...
When that happens it is time to go to the ER...

Yep...
You know it is bad when...
All the doc's are doing rounds...
but all the doc's stop in to see you... :shock:
Never thought 'a little pneumonia' could do such damage...
As a nurse my wife must have been exposed and was resistant...
Because she never got it...
Our youngest had a mild strain...
But I got the grand prize...
They threw everything at it and it just laughed back...
Even had a doc that specialized in infectious diseases at MGH looking over the chart...
Ya gain an appreciation for life when something like this...
dangles you over the edge and you get a chance to come back...
