Just to add to my Christmas joy – I now not only have a head cold of man-flu proportions (I am a *terrible* patient!) but gastro as well.  My only consolation is that I am not expected to be anywhere or do anything  today – although I do miss my family.  Next year I’m hoping to see them at Christmas. Today it’s probably just as well I’m at home.

on a kid’s health info page.  I am again guzzling hydralyte liquid and iceblocks, in an attempt to balance the electrolytes lost… and now it is time to lie down with an icepack again.
