NOT a fun day!


Monday was probably the worst day of my life so far! I was feeling great on Sunday...but when 3:30am rolled around, I woke up sick to my stomach. Over the next 3 hours I threw up about 10 or 11 times and took two baths. I finally asked James to take me to the emergency room because I could not stop throwing up. I arrived with my bucket in hand and they took me right in. I got an IV and a few doses of nausea medication at the hospital and they told me that I had some kind of intestinal virus. A couple hours later, I went home with some nausea medicine, glad that I would stop throwing up. Not really the case. The rest of the day was awful and I continued to have horrible stomach pain and throw up until 6pm. I was finally able to eat Jell-O on Tuesday afternoon and an "Uncrustable" sandwich for dinner. I stayed home from work on Tuesday as well because I still felt like a zombie, but I finally feel great! It is illnesses like these (although this is the worst I've ever had it) that make me grateful to be healthy! And now the weather is so nice and I feel good...I feel like a new person! Sorry this may have been gross to read. At least you weren't James! I feel so bad to have put him through that, but so lucky to have him take care of me all day on Monday and for my mom having her suitcase packed, flights checked, and a ride arrainged from the airport, to come out early Tuesday morning if I wasn't going to stop being sick. I wouldn't have let her come, but it is nice to know how much she cared! I am one lucky girl (well except on Monday & Tuesday). And hey, I lost 6 pounds...don't recommend it though.
