Norovirus. This is the 'stomach flu' that's going around. Of course it's not really the flu as the flu is a respiratory infection caused by an influenza virus, but I digress. This thing is really nasty. Some of you have had it already - my MIL and the spousal unit have had it but my FIL and I were spared. Here's some information that might keep you from getting sick - http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvrd/revb/gastro/norovirus-qa.htm Read the thing - you'll find it fascinating. But - if you don't have the attention span: 1. Apparently the 'stomach flu' is spread through contact with vomit or stool of an infected person. Wash your hands. A lot. As a matter of fact, go wash them now. Keep your fingers out of your mouth. 2. You're contagious for 3 days after the symptoms pass. Go wash your hands again, dammit. Don't prepare food for 3 days after you get better. 3. There's nothing a doctor can do for you but you can see one if you want to. OTC antiemetics and antidiarrheals and lotsa fluids will make you feel better. Drink lotsa water so you don't get dehydrated. 4. This too shall pass. This ends my public service announcement for today. We now return you to your regularly scheduled bass forum, already in progress.
