Look What I got!

Robb and I observe an occasional Holiday Tradition, where one of us gets stupidly sick. And oh boy! My present (pictured to the left) came early this year!

I am the lucky recipient of Hepatitis A, the cause of my nausea.

This rather rare virus is transmitted through the most disgusting circumstances, and I will be getting a phone call from the local board of health to discuss all the restaurants I have frequented recently.

I am also going to have a totally unpleasant chat with my co-workers because of the revolting present that someone left for me to clean up last Friday. I was probably already sick when I dealt with this, but clearly, a person who does this sort of thing is unlikely to be a scrupulous hand washer.

And no, I am not making any of this up.

We already knew you guys were "hep" to the art scene, but I guess you are to the medical world as well.

Sorry, I'm trying to make a funny, but being sick rarely is so. I have no idea what you have to go through, but I will look it up online. Also, I have no idea what was left for you to "clean up" but the power of my imagination is very strong. I can only imagine some one left you your very own alien autopsy to clean up, right?

I suppose you will have to rest a lot and swallow a bunch of antibiotics as well. Take a break from working and pamper yourself for a bit. Let Robb be the nursemaid for a while, and drink lots of hot tea.

For something as icky as Hep A, it sure does make a pretty picture. Hope you feel better soon.

What a rotten thing to happen to such a nice person. Take care of yourself and that liver of yours, eh? Blessings, s of the peas

Aw shit. So to speak.

I'm thinking some nasty thoughts about vectors, but I guess it's goor you got a diagnosis. I'll drink to your rapid and complete recovery... OK, until you can drink to it yourself.
