Mmmm, looks like a yummy combination, doesn’t it. Take 1L of water, mix in two tablespoons of sugar, one half teaspoon of salt, one half teaspoon of baking soda, and add Metamucil with psyllium fibre. Drink one litre every hour. Take acidophilus tablets, drink tea with honey, bananas, plain crackers, toast with no butter, plain potatoes with salt, and pasta with salt only. No butter, oil, or anything else with flavour allowed. And enjoy it all with a hefty slug of Pepto-Bismol when needed. That’s what he was allowed to ingest today.
Poor guy, he wasn’t feeling great Friday, and things went straight downhill from there.
The nurse figures he contracted either a Noravirus, or something closely related.
He’s on the mend now, but he hasn’t had a fun few days.
And I’m glad I had a flu shot since it probably gave me some degree of cross-protection.
