First sickness of the year. BLAH

Postby Dumbo » Sep 26, 2012 10:38 pm

Anyone else get a cold or flu yet?
I feel like crap.

Chest is killing me, hard to breath, and my left arm is very painful can barely move it... and my neck & jaw are killing me. Nitro is doing nothing.

Last time I had these pains I was in surgery for my heart.

I think I'm going to take a run to the hospital. Wish me luck.

If I don't come back... well.. *shrug* they told me I had only about 3-5 years left anyhow and I made it to 7. So, IN THERE FACE!

K ambulance time I think, getting hard to write with the only arm I can move.

Have fun! Be good to each other.

I leave Dave at the helm to twist the panties (or is it knickers??).

Well I certainly hope you are kidding about the chest pains. If not and the nitro won't stop the pain have them put brandy in the IV. Might as well go out happy. :lol:

a Pox on your house! Stay inside while you are at it; don't spread it, please! And no, I don't think you need an ambulance - if you are reading this, you have already survived the worst, don't you think?

It's a scientific fact that colds affect men more than women. I should know... 'coz I just did a quick study.

Both respondents, Tonka AND me, answered in the affirmative! :lol:

I hope it is Marc's weird sense of humour.. I seldom get colds myself, and when I do, they are usually mild. My heart attack symptoms were different; but I'll just say "Get well quick Marc" for whatever is ailing you.

What?????????? You are having a heart attack??? From what you have wrote, it looks like you are. Yikes!! :shock:

I sure hope you checked yourself into the hospital, Marc.

*Get well soon.

Get well.
Here's hoping that it is only a cold.
Had same symptoms a few weeks back, and continued for quite a while. Finally decided to go to emergency, and was told it was the tail end of pnemonia. Given antibiotics (only taken twice in whole life) and am fine now, but scared the bejesus out of me at the time

Getting really worried now, as he hasn't replied. Maybe he has been hospitalized.
