    I'm leaving Friday evening and feel a little light headed and my throat is swollen. I hope I just need sleep! Tonight I have rehearsal for a gig on Thursday night, so I can't just go home after work to relax. Being sick would suck for my Christmas Solo Vegas trip.

    Anyway, I just had to rant.

    Well, I hope you aren't, it just seems to be that time of the year. My work is like a sick zone. We have coughs, colds AND the stomach flu going around. Good luck!

    I got the airborne, tastes terrible but that's okay.

    I'll wear a mask at MC with a straw for beer.

    Within an hour last month of my plane landing my gout set in. It sucked. I liken that to being in Vegas in a leg/foot cast. Being sick wouldn't be much better

    oh no, feel better fast! On my April 2012 trip, i was feeling run down prior to travel and on my second day, I had a fever and a bad sore throat. We ended up calling a doctor to the hotel room and he gave me a rapid strep test and antibiotics. Not fun at all and expensive. However, the option of a hotel doctor is a good thing in a pinch. Feel better and have a great trip!

    I get there same time as you

    I have been paranoid this last week about getting sick. I still remember December 2010 when I was sick as hell

    I actually wasted my first night sleeping in the room. Just terrible bringing tissues with me everywhere

    Ughhhh... I feel for ya. I've gotten ill a couple times before a trip and kept convincing myself I was OK, cause I wanted to go so bad. I lived through it, but obviously didn't enjoy things as I should.

    I didn't sleep well and woke up dizzy. I stopped by the doctor and she said looks like the beginning of a virus but not necessarily the flu. She advised rest and told me not to drink alcohol. She also gave me an anti-bacteria prescription in case I get worse and I'm in Vegas sick. Basically if it doesn't get worse then let my body fight it.

    Thanks for the kind words and I look forward to a good night's sleep!

    No alcohol? She probably told you to drink lots of water too. Who is this quack?

    It's a proven fact that alcohol fights infection.

    I'm leaving on Dec 26th and I started to get sick this past Wednesday. I loaded up on Zicam, Mucinex, and Vitiamin C and Airborne. I feel better today, going to keep up with the meds...I don't want to be sick in Vegas.

    I am going to Mexico at the end of Jan. I almost always get a winter cold, but this year I havent yet. All my coworkers have been sick, but not me. I almost feel like putting myself around sick people to try and get it now, before my vacation.
