Default Help...sickness

I'm suppose to leave for a cruise on sunday with my whole family, but I think it might be cancelled b/c my dad has been really sick for over a week now. Does anyone know what could be wrong if someone has a really, really high fever, chills, shakes, and weakness?

hey Zora if i were in that poision i would like convince my dad (if he get a little better) to go on this cruise, u know y??? cuz on this vessel ur going on, most definitly, has a health center so if he feels worse u can go to that on like the bottom of the ship or W\E!
In the meanwhile maby he should take peptbismal or advil or tylinal (my favorite lol)
And if theres like sum1 on this teen cruise board that there parents are like a docter or a nurse or sumthing maby they could ask what for ur father to do! Anyway i feel for ya man, god, i'd hate having to go on a cruise cuz of sum stupid flu or feaver.

oh and Zora when did this sickness start?

He started getting sick a week ago, and no change still. He goes to the doctor tommorrow. If it were the flu, i think i'd be gone by now. But thanks for everyone's input.

what was wrong with him? see, I wasn't gonna say anything till he had gone on to the doc, cuz I didn't wanna scare you, but they said my dad had the flu too. he ended up actually having a staph infection in his heart valve and he died within two weeks. don't worry though. it is VERY unlikely.

It could be mono... i know he's old and all, and they don't usually get it, but if it is...then it may not go away for a while... i know from experience. I'm like the queen of sickness... most likely its the flu, and those always suck, nothign you can do. HOPEFULLY its bacterial, so he can get PILLS for it... if its viral then you'll have to wait it out. Best of luck w/ him getting well...!!!
