    Brutal Virus

    Sorry folks if I haven't been active around these parts lately. About 2 weeks ago I came down with the nastiest virus I've had in years. It is not as bad as the flu but worse than a cold. I've had a thrumming headache, mucus sucking, general debility and a hacking cough all this time. Add in the Christmas festivities and the grandkids and it's really drained my energy.
    I seem to be improving about 5% per day. Finally got off the decongestants but I still need cough medicine to sleep at night.
    Hopefully I'll be back to normal in the New Year.

    Ray, hope you're better real soon. Given the 5%/day improvement, certainly at the worst in 20 days, you'll be back at your usual 100%+ !
    Regards, T Bone

    Even a broken watch shows correct time once or twice a day. I ought to know, I have a few!

    Be well Ray. I've been seeing it here as well, just a few hours down the highway from where you are. Hopefully it passes though quickly.
    It is now my duty to completely drain you.

    Hang in there and get better.

    We have a staff member in our office with the same thing and I have not seen her for almost three weeks.

    Hope you're 100% soon, Ray. I got it in November, and it lasted six or seven weeks. The cough was the worst; turned into bronchitis, so be careful about that.
