Re: [IPk] dehydration and stomach bug
yes, My thoughts exactly. I don't mind hospitals at all, but I know a hospital
bed with an IV is not a good place to have D&V from a purely practical point of

I think I'll see how I go tonight and maybe call a friend, i have a few work
colleagues who live round the corner.
