Dr. Beamish prescribes dry toast and 7-Up.

It's horrible. I had it for a week. The doctor prescribed medication that caused constipation, which was even worse. I finally kicked it myself. I drank lots of green tea and only ate soda crackers.

Hope you get well soon!

You didn't go to Taco Bell or eat green onions did you? Just trying to make you smile. I know how bad you must feel. Hope you feel better soon.

Gayle: Drop Grizzly Mama a line about the Green Tea. She won't listen to me :)

Cube stole my best line.

But get well AOW!

I did a thing today on the push for fitness centers under Sharia law. You have probably heard all about it by now.

Get your rest, sip hot tea, get better, AOW!

Watch some funny movies while you heal. :D

I somewhat know what you're going through. Lucky for you though - my "gastroenteritis" turned out to be something called Dysentery. I caught it while visiting Karachi Pakistan. Imagine that. That experience was the worse pain EVER.

Feel better, I will hold down the fort and swat the Duck on my site.

don't eat cottage cheese - EVER!

You know what? Walnuts, bananas and oatmeal will clean it right outa there. From experience, trust me.

PS - just make sure you are near the bathroom at all times.

what does this do to a person?

symptoms, please.

It not only bulks up the intestinal tract, it cleans out most of the bacteria that causes enteritis as well. Plenty of water is recommended.

Dear Lord! thank you for nurse tmw and doctor steve!

is gastroenteritis just a nice way of saying someone's full of it?

hehehe...glad you're on the mend, aow.

Nanc,
I'm feeling human today and am upright --somewhere other than on the john.

And just now, my cousin pulled up to demolish the bathroom. Our one and only bathroom.

Sleep it off! Sleep is the best medicine!

Get better soon, my friend!

Juice can irritate, drink gatorade, it replaces the lost salts and trace elements you lose to sweating from fever and, how shall Isay this, digestive upsets?
Applesauce, rice, bananas, dry toast, the ubiquitous BRAT's diet, gentle on the abused organs!
And lots of rest or sleep!

tmw
fuss, fuss, fuss, I'm in Mother Mode!

Just for the record...I don't eat anything from Taco Bell. Ick!

Gayle,
I had it for a week.

A week--that's an unbearable thought!

I think that I'm getting better today. My husband, though, has been laid up since early Monday morning.

i like baby food - specifically third foods peach cobbler and fruit mix - when i feel good and when i don't. yes, we eat baby food at nanchouse.

Hope you start feeling better soon.
Steve might be right but the last thing I want to do when I'm sick like that is to eat anything.
I'm glad to see that you weren't eating tacos.
I pretty much stay away from fast food even though I admittedly enjoy Big Macs.

I hope your feeling better soon. My Wife is down sick now too.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

tmw is right. If you're having diarrhea, you must replace the electrolytes with a Gatorade-like drink which is better than water. Also, binders like rice will *ahem* coalesce the stool into a more consistent consistency.

This is one miserable virus, worse than the usual 24-hour bug.

I'll be doing a lot of sleeping. I'm weak, and my stomach is still iffy.

Anonymous,
Hello, PA friend! I'm inching my way back to normality.
