    Was on a 600 mile Spokane run yesterday and it hit like a hammer.
    Boss was calling every 30 minutes to check on me, I`m officially off the road til I`m better. I slept for 13 hours last night,never done that before..
    Anyone got there Grannies secret flu recipe ?

    Tamiflu from the doctor. Will make you a lot better in about 3-4 days.

    Man I know how bad it is on the road and getting sick. What are the symptoms? I believe I once had food poisoning and it was coming out every opening. I was lost in the sticks in Indiana no less. I finally shut it down and slept over night in the sleeper. Next morning I was feeling ok and found my way to unload. The truck I mean since I had already unloaded everything I had last night. I sure was glad I had that roll of toilet paper in the sleeper for the past year. Geeze I was thankful for it that night.
    If I am feeling sick but not throwing up then I will force myself to upchuck to get it out of me. I sure hope you are at least in a motel.
    Hope you feel better to get home for Christmas.

    Hot tea, lots of lemon juice, and lots of honey. Good luck, we've all been there occasionally.

    Darn you! You obviously forgot to wipe your keyboard, and now I'm sick. Both me and the misses are queasy and have no equilibrium, making us want to bounce off the walls as we walk.

    Havasu........I have heard spiked eggnog has that same effect so it might not be flu you are feeling coming on.
