Hit By A Mack Truck... & Da Wife Is On Da Couch!

May 20th, 2009

My apologies for not checking in once yesterday but you see.... I got hit by a Mack truck and I'm still feeling da effects.

A few days ago - late Saturday afternoon to be exact - I started feeling it: scracthy throat, light headiness, slight temperature.

Oh wait.... that was the post game effects of yet another disappointing loss. :roll: More on that later.

I got hit with something far more worse than any loss... I got a real bad case of the flu. Unrealz bad. It was so bad that Monday morning I deliriously called my doctor for an appointment, drove down doing my best to match the speed limit (was driving like a mukule granny in a Camry) and what really was about 50 yards to my doctor's office from the parking garage felt like trudging a mile through the Sahara on my hands and knees.

After spending about 40 mins waiting, I finally get called in and get asked the same ole same ole questions.... 10 minutes later when the doctor comes in, I get asked the same questions. I really don't know what that's all about. I wonder if it's trick questions to see if you answer them the same way 10 minutes ago or to test your patience? Or maybe your symptoms will change from the time you get admitted to the time your doctor sees you?

In any case, I've been house arrested this whole week and sent into quarantine per doctor's orders. :cry: I haven't been able to hug Da Wife and she's been kicked to da couch. Well, if I actually woke up in the last 60 hours to move, maybe she would have had a chance to kick me to da couch. :roll: If there is anything good about being sick it's that it's a sure fire way to lose weight!

So if I don't post for awhile, my apologies in advance as I try and kick this bad boy out of my system, but before I fall asleep for the next 48 hours I'd just like to send an E Komo Mai to WWD! Shout Out to all Da Lurkahs who popped in on Monday's "Represent" Blog and also to those who we haven't heard from in awhile too. :wink:

    Hey BL --

    Ohh, so DAT's what happened to you. I was wondering what happened since you didn't post in comments the last couple days. I thought you was getting smashed at work, not smashed in bed! :shock:

    Dang, I know how you feel. I was just sick the other week. Not full on flu, but crappy enough to stay home from work. I think was the vog that triggered it. Cough, sinus headache, body ache.

    Anyways, take care, get plenny rest and drink plenny fluids. (Not only beer, now ;) ) No need worry about the blog, just get some rest! Just put one empty topic, and we'll take care of the rest. hehe ;)

    Get well soon!

  2. jaydee:

    Bummers brah! You sure it's not the Swine Flu? Anyway get plenty of rest and get well soon.

  3. anklebiters:

  6. King Katonk:

    Ho BL,
    You had me worried for second; it’s a good thing you came up for air. I think you better rub some kim chee all over your chest in place of the Vicks vapor rub. That should do the trick. Hope you feel better.

    BTW - I’m just glad that you were only hit by a Mack truck and not by Patrick Willis.
    Then I’d be really worried.

    Props to Da Wife for sleeping on the couch while you get some rest. I’ve been there before and it’s not very comfortable. The sad part was that my spouse wasn’t sick.

  7. Center Of Thought:

    Hope you're feelin' better BL - that vomit, puke, barf stuff with da feva is no fun!

This last one, I ended up sleeping on the couch, and on the recliner cause I didn't want my wife to wake up in the middle of the night from my coughing. She gotta work. Anyway, I just getting over that coughing one. Throat still itchy and the beea no help. Actually make me sleep good.

    Mrs. BL must really love you to give you da bed. Either that or you're too heavy for her to carry/drag! (j/k - it's bad karma to make fun of somebody who's so sick.)

  19. Ynaku:

  20. hanapaa:

    @ Ynaku: Brah rememba now, no try operate da danga euipment afta you take da "medicine". I tink Long's had da Margarita-flavored Nyquil.

  21. acuradriver02:


    I think we can all sympathize with you, having had the flu before. I know I did before and there were a few times I thought just being dead was preferable to feeling so bad (NOT wishing that on you at all).

    Get well soon. I'm sure all your boys (the ones you coach and the ones you're on the team with) all miss baseball prowess.

    You gonna owe Da Wife big time - when I was sick, I mostly kept to myself in the downstairs part of the house, but my wife would pop her head in every once in awhile (from a distance, of course) when she hears me moaning and groaning...and get whatever I asked (more like demanded). If your wife doing the same, the anniversary/Christmas is gonna be expensive this year :-)

  22. 2B:

    Hope this one goes away after one week. Not like the last one that took 4 months to go away.....

  23. Bre:

    BL, I'm sorry to hear you are not feeling well. I hope you get better soon. You are too upbeat to be sick!!

  24. GA Bows:

    Take care of yourself and hope you start to feel better soon!

  25. theDman:

    Lance, brah, azz why no good hang aroun da peegs man!

    Take care and get well.

  26. kate:

    Get well soon Lance! Take care and get lots of rest so you can get better faster.

    If you stuck in bed, do you have a bell? I give my husband a bell when he's sick so he can ring me if he needs something. Good thing he doesn't get sick often.

  27. Ocean Lover:

    Eh BL...........we miss you. Hurry up and get rid of dat germ.....or virus....or green hanas.


  28. opso:

  31. 808 Dad:

    Hey Lance,
    Take care of yourself. Lots of fluids and rest. I usually lie out in the sun for hours whenever I get the flu. For some reason the sun feels so good and I try to sweat out bad bugs.

    Warms your throat and chest. Like magic.
    Helps with nausea too. Toss da Halls. Jus eat a bag
    Of this for a few days.
    I brought some with us on dis trip. Had some on da
    Plane and in da long car rides to fend off dizzy tummies.
    Hubby eating to keep a cold away and seems to be
    Helping. Go try. Taste like crack seed but intense in
    A good and helpful way.

  43. anklebiters:

  49. kate:

    Just checking up on you.

    Ring the bell if you need us. Don't want to use the baby monitor because I don't want to hear you snoring.
