Item is in distress tonight. Keep him in your thoughts please.
Damn, that sounds bad. I hope they're at an ER by now.

*fingers crossed*

Ouch, yea. Hopefully people yelled loud enough in that thread to convince them to go.

I don't want to get all political but how fucked are we in the US that this scenario is even possible?

Very, octothorpe. Man.

Can't wait to hear that item is out of danger, and sending my thoughts and prayers and energy.

That sounds dire. May wellness find you soon, item.

I know that the expense of the ER can be scary, but count me as another person who hopes they're there. Or, at least, that he's been able to take in some fluids.

geez here's hoping he's resting comfortably in a bed at the hospital with beaucoup fluids coursing in his system. Thinking of you guys.

From the last post, it looks like they went to the ER and he's on an IV.

netbros, please give us an update on item if you can.

On preview, good.

I suspect that his illness is karmic retribution for having dressed up like Super Hitler. I know -- I have pictures.

(Get well soon, item!)

God I hope they're okay.

These are the decisions that none of us ever want to make. GOD I HATE THIS COUNTRY SOMETIMES.

On the bright side, though, you know one time my son - about age 12 then - was vomiting like that for more than 24 hours. The doctor was completely dismissive; there was no suggestion of even bringing him to the office, let alone the ER. Finally (I think it was hysterical phone call number 4) he gave me a prescription for those phenergan suppositories and lo and behold, the kid was totally and completely fine 6 hours later and within 12 hours was begging for McDonalds.

Late to this thread, I hope item is feeling better now.

Sounds like he's on the mend, which is a damn good thing. Hopefully he or his SO will report back here (or there) when he's on his feet again.

He can be a contentious guy online, but I've met both he and UCotC a few times (hell, even had 'em over to my house before), and they're good, kind people.

Hopefully when my work slows down a bit, I can finally go eat at his restaurant and, money provided, tip very well to help with the ensuing hospital bills.
