Down with the Sickness

I really had every intention of publishing something worthwhile today, but as it turns out, nature had other plans for me.

I'm talking about the 102 fever, constant vomiting, no sleep at all last night kinds of plans.

I'm not at work today and I probably won't be there tomorrow either, and if anyone got the license number of the truck that ran over me and keeps backing up to finish the job, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Sorry folks -- I'll return when I return.

If this is too intrusive just ignore it or insult me or something. It seems like you get sick quite often. Does that have anything to do with your surgery/resulting medications? I'm assuming most of them are normal viruses, of course. I don't really know anything about the kind of surgery you had and I'm just curious.

If you don't want to get into it publicly, I think you have my email/facebook.

PS Admit it, you just want to escape the constant politically punditry at least we scrubs can all change the channel/turn the TV off.

Feel better soon!

I get sick after a tooth visit too. Which is why I no longer make tooth visits.

Fucking periodontists.

Heidi said...

Awww...feel better, Chez. The interweb is definitely going to have a you-shaped hole in it until you're back in fighting form.

You better be feeling better soon because next Tuesday I'll be in NYC for work.

Kept a sharp eye out. I'm a 6 foot, 175 pound white guy with dark brown hair. I shouldn't be hard to find.

Drink some chicken broth or something.

Chez & boo - It's really common to get ill after a periodontist visit. They break up the germs in your mouth and often break the skin.

Some people swear that if you brush, floss and rinse with antiseptic mouthwash right before you go and rinse again after (but it will sting like a bitch) that you can avoid it.

Of course if you were brushing, flossing and rinsing with antiseptic mouthwash - you probably wouldn't be going to the periodontist in the first place. :P

While you are sick, may I suggest some good reading... The Replacments: All Over But The Shouting: An Oral History. Great read for any 'Mats fan. Love the blog, feel better man.

A swift death to your cold. I always look forward to reading your posts.

Look at the bright side; right now, your macrophages are going to town as the helper t-cells are calling upon killer-t and memory b-cells to mount a defense of biblical proportions. Soon, anti-bodies will be swarming whatever it is you have, and any infected cells will have to answer to the killer-ts. Fortunately, when all is said and done, suppressor t-cells will be on the scene as everything is clearing up to stop the inertia created by the defense and in essence, prevent your immune system from attacking healthy you.

Eat some meat if you can, as the immune system is mad crazy protein. Gotta keep up the supply lines!

Strength and honor to your immune system!

Some interesting laws for you to ponder whilst sick

In Florida it is illegal for single, divorced, or widowed women to parachute on Sunday afternoons.

A law in Oblong, Illinois makes it a crime to make love while fishing or hunting on your wedding day.

In Ada, Oklahoma if you wear New York Jets clothing, you may be put in jail.

And, in New York slippers are not to be worn after 10:00 P.

Feel better!
