Not For Da Faint Of Heart

March 14th, 2013
By

Maybe it was a trigger for things to come but once Da Wife mentioned it, things started to happen.

We attended a baby 1st luau luncheon dis past Sunday and everything went good from da setup, to da company to da grindz, to da "refreshments". :mrgreen: Since it was a close friends of Da Wife, we had "duties" to do from prepping da area, finishing up the desserts (had a huge dessert table), Da Wife and anoddah friend was checking in people and I got roped into being da photographer.

Well, on Tuesday Da Wife asked if Da Baby or I was sick and I questionably replied, "no... whhhhy?". She goes to say dat eight oddah people got sick (food poisoning). I told Da Wife, "it's a good thing we got some iron-clad stomachs huh?"

Spoke too soon cause as soon as I came home aftah practice, I felt queasy. Aftah giving Da Baby a bath, it started: chills, fever, bathroom, chills, fever, bathroom. Well, not in dat particular order and definitely more of da bathroom thing than any oddah.

Wassup Wit Dat!

It wasn't pretty and got to be pretty sore aftah awhile if you know wat I mean... and no ack like you don't know wat I mean.

Da Baby felt sick earlier in da day wen Da Wife asked if we were sick but da doctor said it was anoddah ear infection (geez, dat makes it like a thousand or so by now... WWD!) so we were just relieved dat it wasn't food poisoning for her as dat certainly wouldn't have been pleasant for any of us.

I called in sick Wednesday, which is rare as Haley's comet, but there's something about using your own bathroom dat trumped sucking it up and going to work.

So wat's worse, da flu or a stomach illness?

I would take da flu any day of da week and twice on Sundays..... at least das wat my okole tells me.

    Aloha. Food poisoning is neva, eva pleasant. I got one wen we went to Japan fo vacation. I swear it was Noro-virus or e-coli. Da thing is you cannot take stool hardeners 'cause dat makes dem worse. Gotta take lots of fluids and let the germ work its way out. Good luck!


  2. DIO:

    Brah, I think you could've put a better warning on this. Perhaps something that says, "Not For Da Faint Of Heart, Weak Minded, Weak Willed, Squeamish, Those Under 18, Those About To Eat, Those Who Just Ate, etc." :lol: I'm just minutes away from eating when I read this blog entry. :mrgreen:


  3. Fat Bastard:

    BL, in that situation, you gotta dab, not wipe...


  4. M:

    Howzit BL,
    You got to hydrate when you get dat kind sick. I get this cough fo 2 weeks ladat, just cough, no soah throat, no running nose, just coughing. Wen stay home fo 2 days and wen go get antibiotics, stay coughing less now.


  5. snow:

    let's not forget that a stomach ailment can give you the fever and the chills, too. :( the only thing good about it - compared to the flu - is that it usually doesn't last as long.

    since i'm not a drinker, i never understood the need to hangover a toilet... in fact, it grossed me out! however, i got food poisoning on a trip and spent the night praying to the porcelain gods! grossness be had (i mean, your own toilet is bad enough... but a hotel?!? aiyaiyai!), there was no other way around it... i was literally too weak to stand up for an extended period of time!


  6. Glenn D:

    Rememba...keep foods colda dan 41 degrees or hotter dan 135. If no temp control, have to throw out cold foods afta 6 hours, 4 hours for hot food. But den, it only takes one person to go lua and not wash hands den handle food to get others sick. Pilau yeah?


  7. Cojef:

    Just finis lunch, so no problem. Been thru what you experienced, like you were married to toilet seat cuz you couldn't stay close enough and get back on it several more times than you think necessary. Hydration, preferrably warm tea is best. Lucky you keiki did not have to go through what you went through. Wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Hope you feel better quick.

    :cool: Good Health to Everyone!!! :cool:

    ... hey Braddah Lance ... I love the brutally honest blog ... brings back memories ... bad memories, of course ... but yeah, I think we've all been there ...

    ... I think you forget to mention the cramping and the beads of sweat running down your forehead ... haha ...

    ... *knock on wood* ... I don't want either ... but yeah, I guess the flu would be the choice if we're talking pain and discomfort ... because you can always sleep off the flu or take lots of medication ... stomach pain is usually inescapable ... it'll wake you up from a sleep ... and there's really no medication that will help that much ... a bathroom "purge" is the only solution ... haha ... pains me to think about it ...

    ... Happy Digestion to Everyone!!! ...

    Das da biggest "benefit".

    Ha ha ha.... I'm laughing with you, not at you. :razz: Dat happened to me as well years and years ago back wen Vegas had dat outbreak and basically everything you touched, you had a good chance of catching it... and I did along with three of my oddah friends. :shock: Uh, four guys, one bathroom... do da math. :roll:

    Da food was "within serving time" from wen they got it..... but da question of whether it was out by da caterer is da question. But always a good reminder for potlucks.

    But den, it only takes one person to go lua and not wash hands den handle food to get others sick. Pilau yeah?

    Rogah, dat is not too good.

    Uhhh... wat you like, da ROCK or da HAHD PLACE, eh?? Gee tanks, BL :roll: :D

    I'd take the stomach thing (had the exact same thing 2 days aftah Christmas) over da flu ONLY 'cuz of the duration - NOTHING MORE, trust me. LOL! :P


  11. lowtone123:

    I know what you going through when da buggah all raw from all dat wiping.


  12. kamaaina808:

    Forgot to mention - When even Charmin feels like sand papah, 'Tucks' are your friend. :cool:


  13. Da808:

    Bet you wish this was one of those times you had one of those fancy toilets that just shoots a gentle spray of water and then shoots warm air to dry... !!


  14. Cojef:

    Da808, you got it right. The wife has one of those Japanee toilet and swears by it. Me, no like, something shooting at my okole and wet, even after warm spray. Use "Wipes" after toilet paper after every time make unko.


  15. dihudfan:

    not a good feelin... especially wen no mo medicine to take to relieve the pains... s y hud... hope you feelin bettah!!


  16. wafan:

    Brutal year for my kids. A bunch of them had the upset stomach thing. Several of them mentioned they were sooooo glad their bathtubs were right next to the toilet . . . must be rough when both ends go at the same time.

    Now, BL, you know why someone invented the donut pillow. Tough to sit, yeah?

    Worst thing with the flu and the runs is the need to cough and the fear of possibly doo-doo'ing (sharting?) your pants while in bed or the chair or on the floor or . . . yup, been down that road before. Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

    Oops.


  17. pnutgrrl:

    Whatever stomach bug you suffered on Tuesday did not have anything to do with what you ate on Sunday. Food poisoning happens pretty fast - within two to six hours or so of eating the bad item.

    You definitely had a stomach bug on Tuesday but it's probably that from something you ate on Tuesday. Or maybe you touched something with your hands (elevator button, door knob) that had cooties on it and then touched your mouth or nose. Even that might do it.

    Oh, by the way: Let's say your wife and you eat the same things, but a few hours later, only you get the runs and start vomiting, etc. It's entirely possible that you ate the one and only bite of the food that was contaminated. All it takes is one microscopic bug for someone to get sick.

    Feel better and enjoy your day!

    You know, at first I was tinking da same thing but eight oddah people from da same party got it too albeit a little sooner than me, Monday I believe.

    Did I mention I was fully active (baseball, weightlifting, running etc) wen I had a ruptured appendix....... for a week?! I've been told you literally die from septic shock within two. :shock:

    It's entirely possible that you ate the one and only bite of the food that was contaminated. All it takes is one microscopic bug for someone to get sick.

    It would be me to eat dat one bite of contaminated microscopic bug. :razz:

    BL, hope you can soon fut wit confidence....


  20. NKHEA:

    Howzit BL

    Use da baby wipes ;)


  21. sally:

    I don't know if this helps, but ... at least you not in Vegas.

    Feel better soon!


  22. Ynaku:

    I got feeling after drinking Primo Beea with NKHEA when he came to Waikoloa. He could RUN to his hotel room, but I had a LONG drive back to HILO. When da urge comes, make like a pencil and SQUEEZE 8) until you find one bathroom.

    When I go outdoor parties, I kinda avoid the salads with mayo if not on ice. Still yet I sked cause I've been BURNED too many times

    Watchout cause the stomach virus going around too. Grand daughter stayed home 2 days cause she was so sick and kept throwing up all day. Poor thing :cry: No worries, Papa stayed home with her :)


  23. Annoddah Dave:

    BL: Caution to those who use baby wipes...they are NOT Flushable! All you need is a wad of the wipes in the toilet to back it up and then you got yourself another problem! Flushables should be limited to one or two each time. Nothing like an overflowing toilet filled with kukae!


  24. NKHEA:

    Ynaku............DUCK 8O Yeah BL make shua u stay away from Primo beea till everyting clears up :mrgreen:


  25. Ocean Lover:
