    Raf, this reminds me of the time when I came down with the flu about eight years ago. Like you I decided to carry on working regardless, and ended up with a nasty chest infection that immobilised me.
    The thing that really sticks in my head is being laid up on the sofa at night on my own, coughing up this nasty mess for hours, while watching Raiders of the Lost Ark on DVD. And you know how when a DVD finishes it returns to the main menu and plays the intro endlessly on a loop? Well that was me, so weak I couldn't even get to the remote, listening to the first fifteen seconds or so of the Raiders theme - on a loop, for hours.
    So here's a tip - if you're planning to rest, and you're feeling weak - take the TV remote to bed with you. Or have a shoe or something to throw at the screen in an emergency.

    Thank you all my friends , was able to spend time with my friend nick , but he is actually in a coma and they had put some kind of medication in him to paralyze him, as to not have the shaking and bad heart rithym , they lowered his body temperature to avoid more brain damage , but are now slowly warming him up and taking away the paralyzing med, to see how he will react, doc says he may move normally but he thinks, or better yet , he says that there is no hope that if he survives this he will ever wake up , there is too much brain damage , or worse he will die , as his heart will not take it , so we will see what happens in the morning , it's easy to say I'm preparing for the worse , but no matter what , your never prepared , thanks for all the :love:

    Thanks buddy and I'm sorry for your loss, today we found out that my friend nick is actually gone, neurologist said to much time without air to the brain and he will not come out of it and if so would be a vegetable , even though he is breathing on his own but a little help with oxygen ,he recommended for the family to just take everything off and let whatever is needed to happen happen as he said he would not continue the treatment since there is no hope, I stayed another day but tomorrow morning I go back to Santa Barbara and I know I will soon be getting the call .
