Glad you're ok mate. Just shows none of us knows who may be struck down next. Hope you and your labourer are both fine and back to doing what you do best in the near future. Does that mean there are some uneaten Hob Nobs in the Mods. lounge ?
Glad to hear you got through it Dave! Definitely sounds like an ordeal and your general health probably got you through when it turned out not to be a mild case. Hope you keep on the mend now
One of mates is pretty sure he had it a few weeks back as his flat mates sister was confirmed to have it a week after she last visited them then him and his flat mate both fell ill. His fairly unhealthy flat mate was largely ok with mild symptoms yet he was floored for a week with similar symptoms to those you describe. He's 26 and a fit as a fiddle rugby player so just shows how it's pot luck how bad you get it.
So WTF were you doing running this site while you were so ill. Even the PM took time out from running the country and running this site must be harder than running the country Glad you're over the worst and on the mend but as requested I won't post a get well message.
