    Just need to vent a bit here. My DH came down w/a nasty cough/cold(now wondering if it was actually the flu) a few days after Christmas. He is just now feeling better. My son started feeling bad on Saturday and has now missed two school days since vacation ended. He is asthmatic and is now using two prescription inhalers, an antibiotic, and Rx cough medicine. I'm hoping he doesn't end up needing prednisone or breathing treatments to get through this. Now for the really fun part! Monday I started to not feel very well, and by this morning felt like I had been hit by a truck. Aching all over, headache,sore throat,congestion. I am hoping my daughter is lucky and bypasses this lovely illness, but right now it is not looking good! Thanks for letting me vent, I hope anyone else who has the crud at their house feels better soon!!

    It is a short lived crud, which we had 2 weeks before Christmas. It is icky, but passed quickly. Stay warm and drink, drink, drink (water that is - smile).

    Are you sure it has to be water?! LOL!! I actually don't even feel like eating right now. Have been drinking a lot of tea, mostly hot, and eating toast. My DH wanted to take me out to dinner tonight, but took one look at me still in my PJ's, hair not done and yesterdays make-up smeared around my eyes and figured out quickly how bad I'm feeling. The worst part is there is a baby quilt sandwiched in my sewing room that needs quilting but I am not feeling up to it.Maybe I will feel better tomorrow.

    So sorry to hear you're sick. My DH got sick a week before our out of town company was to get here for the holidays so I moved out of our bedroom into spare room hoping not to catch it. That was not to be, as Christmas Eve morning I got up sick just as company arrived. I was sick thru the holidays and I am still sick. so sick in fact that doc won't let me join in the weight loss this month. She wants my immune system to build up first. Guess once the CRUD is in the house it is almost impossible to avoid it.

    Yep, we've had it too and it does hang on for awhile. I felt generally lousy for 10 days, but make to normal now.

    We had the CRUD too. Myself, DSand DDall had it the week of new years the only one who didnt catch it was DH so far. Just get lots of rest and fluids and ride it out it wont last forever.

    The same crud went through our family like Grant took Richmond.
    We all went down like dominoes. It's over fast but that's little comfort I guess.
    I hope you're all better soon.
