from bad to worse

Wednesday morning in Boston, and matters have gone to bad to worse.

I am feeling much better this morning, though I still have a touch of whatever it was. I'm running at maybe 85% of my old self.

Unfortunately, Parris woke up with a full-blown case of whatever the hell I had. (Guess that proves it was indeed a stomach virus of some sort, and not food poisoning). She's where I was back on Monday morning, which isn't good. We're not going to be able to travel.

We're still trying to figure out what this does to our New York plans. Maybe some of them can be salvaged, but...

Boskone should never have have left the Sheraton. The new con hotel appears to be the Hotel California -- we can check out any time we want, but we can never leave.

Sorry you guys are sick. This stomach thing is really making the rounds...
Feb. 21st, 2007 01:41 pm (UTC)
Ugh! Pass on our best wishes to Parris.
Feb. 21st, 2007 01:42 pm (UTC)
ditto :)
Feb. 21st, 2007 01:42 pm (UTC)
Oh no - poor Parris! Best wishes to her for a speedy recovery - I hope you're both back at 100% soon!
Feb. 21st, 2007 01:43 pm (UTC)
nice to hear you're better, hope Parris gets well soon -being ill while far from home sucks big time.
Feb. 21st, 2007 01:44 pm (UTC)
So sorry to hear this. My wife and I had the same (or a similar) bug about two months ago. The bad news is that you'll probably feel shaky for another week or so. The good news is, you and Parris will be through the worst of it soon.

On a positive note, I just picked up the Armageddon Rag, and I'm enjoying the hell out of it.

I hope you both get well soon. It's a really miserable type of ailment. You feel so uncomfortable, vulnerable and incapacitated. Not that you need me to tell you that.

How are you coping with the fact that Parris appears to have been right and that your little prawn was simply an innocent nibble?

At moments like this I'm always reminded of the question:

"If a man is in the middle of a forest, 100 miles from the nearest woman, is he still wrong?"

Feel better. Sounds what's been getting passed around here in the NE.
Feb. 21st, 2007 01:50 pm (UTC)
Ugh. I'm glad you're feeling better, but so sorry that she has it now. It's a horrible, horrible virus, and my speediest-recovery wishes go out to you both.
Feb. 21st, 2007 01:53 pm (UTC)
Yes, that virus is definitely going around Boston. Many of the people I work with have been stricken with it. Takes 3 to 4 days usually to get over it completely.

Vindication for my crustaceous brethren!!

I wish Parris as quick a recovery as possible. One should never be trapped for so long in a Con hotel -- unless this punishment for the sins of Cons past.
Feb. 21st, 2007 01:58 pm (UTC)
I'm so sorry to hear such foul luck befalling the both of you.

Give Parris my best wishes for her recovery and I hope you manage to get back to 100% soon too.
Feb. 21st, 2007 02:02 pm (UTC)
oh dear. not good.
pass on our best wishes to your lady, if you would. Hope the both of you'll feel better soon.
Feb. 21st, 2007 02:02 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you're feeling better-- hope this indicates that Parris's troubles, too, pass quickly. Good health to you both!
Feb. 21st, 2007 02:03 pm (UTC)
sounds pretty awful. glad you are feeling better, and hope Parris does soon!
Feb. 21st, 2007 02:15 pm (UTC)
How miserable. I hope you both mend up soon. Best wishes for a sudden, acute onset of perfect health.
Feb. 21st, 2007 02:20 pm (UTC)
Woe and biscuits. My sincerest sympathies and wishes for a quick recovery.
Feb. 21st, 2007 02:28 pm (UTC)
Shoot. Well, speedy recovery Parris!

Man this bug is making people drop like flies....and it seems to be spreading loike the plague.
Feb. 21st, 2007 02:33 pm (UTC)
I think you got the Nolavirus that has been going around the Northeast.

I was at a convention in Maryland (Farpoint) and one of the kids that was going with us got it on Sunday so we couldn't travel until Monday. We had already had it so we are fine.

I hope Parris is feeling better soon.
Feb. 21st, 2007 02:37 pm (UTC)
My best to Parris. This sounds like an urgy trip. :(
Feb. 21st, 2007 02:46 pm (UTC)
I wish you both a swift and complete recovery, with minimal discomfort.
Feb. 21st, 2007 02:48 pm (UTC)
Just echoing most of the above sentiments- glad you are better, sorry to hear Parris is ill now.
Feb. 21st, 2007 02:59 pm (UTC)
I hope you both feel better soon.
Feb. 21st, 2007 03:14 pm (UTC)
Feel better Parris! If there is anything that myself or any of your fans can do to make your life easier right now, please let us know. I am in NYC, going to boston this evening for work stuff, but if you need anything... there is not much worse than being sick away from home.
Feb. 21st, 2007 03:25 pm (UTC)
be careful
My boss ended up on an IV from a version of that bug.

Hope you guys feel better soon!
Feb. 21st, 2007 03:27 pm (UTC)
That's too bad; my best wishes for Parris's speedy recovery.
