    Take it seriously and take care of yourself. A surprising number of people still die from the flu each year, and pneumonia is no joke. Take your meds, plenty of rest, etc. etc.

    And while it is unlikely that deciding to post here had anything to do with your illness, I wouldn't completely rule it out...... :p

    Best wishes on your lurking. Hope you feel better. As long as you are discrete with your lurking you will probably not be arrested and be forced to be Tommy’s play thing.

    More important than welcoming you --- we want to keep you alive. With this flu -- if your fever DROPS it can be a sign of impending Septic shock. That goes quickly and you do NOT want to mess with it.. Especially KNOWING there is a secondary bacterial infection already.. For God's sake man -- take the meds and get into town..

    Get attention man. We want to hear more -- and welcome..

    Hello again. Gee, that post about septic shock would have been prophetic if i i had seen it monday. Anyway, it was touch and go for a few days that i dont remember much of. I just got home a bit ago and got on the internet. I honestly didnt have any interest at the hospital, but from monday to wednesday night i was out of it.
    Nothing to fool with for sure.

    Did you get yelled at the hospital also? :eusa_dance: Local radio talk show host picked up an article from the CDC that day. I just heard that warning and figured I'd share.

    Glad you're still a living USMB member. We hate to lose them before their Intro Thread is done.. :banana: Welcome to USMB..

    Would you like to arrange a meeting? :) Coming to the thread late but welcome ozro and I agree with the others that you may have dodged a bullet with this nasty stuff going around so take care of yourself and don't relapse. Looks like you're going to fit in here at USMB just fine so long as you don't forget your bullet proof vest and keep fresh batteries in your bulls**t detector. :)
