OK, gross subject, I know. But all these sickness threads reminded me of a question I had a few weeks ago when I had some version of the flu. It hit me suddenly--fever, sneezing, runny nose, nausea. I couldn't possibly eat, but really wanted something to drink, and nothing would stay down. When you're in that predicament, should you keep trying to drink something in hopes of a little hydration, even though you throw everything back up? I was finally able to keep down ice chips and Gatorade, but my kidney area was hurting, and I know that's not good. What should you do???
