In my best American idiom, I noted "In that case I'm screwed, aren't I?" and she laughed out load and nodded her head. then again, she doubled the amount of antibiotics she allocated to me, so my directness probably broke the ice

Sailingdog - I didn't inquire about "Zofran" patches; I didn't realize they existed!
Umm.. this was the second time I've mentioned them. Most people don't know that they exist. Their use is relatively rare, and they're probably fairly expensive...but if you can get them... they're a relatively high-confidence, low side-effect way of stopping seasickness. From what I understand, Zofran has far fewer side effects for most people than does Scop.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
