Not a Love Bug

I am still weak, shaky, and my muscles feel atrophied, but I think the worst is behind me. That isn't meant to be a pun. I have suffered. Monday night I felt nauseous, and then all through that night and until Thursday late afternoon, I was stricken with what I thought might be Ebola, or Typhoid or some other death sentence. At first I guessed it was a 24 hour bug that was ravaging my system, but apparently is is more of a 72 hour horror show. One that got worse as the days passed. Imagine intense nausea, incredible amounts of liquids exiting my intestinal system every few minutes, leaving me dehydrated to the point of dry heaves and shakes. I called a nurse Thursday morning and she said it's just a bad bug and to drink as much Gatorade as I could and that unless my fever was over 102 to just ride it out. Ugh! So I've made it to the other side, and I hope none of you get this thing. I have no idea of where I got it.

As bad as it all was, (and still is-I'm so weak and lightheaded!) the worst part was having Annie see me so sick, and for me to see her so alone and exposed to T.V. I couldn't offer much else! Thankfully dear Jen and Johnny scooped her both Wednesday and Thursday for a lot of fun and play! I felt so relieved and cared about!

Oh my goodness. So glad you are on the mend. And knock wood that Annie didn't catch it too.

I look at the time you posted it and wonder if you are up making a bathroom visit or have you had enough sleep and you really are on the mend?
I worry!

Glad you're feeling better, I'd missed your blog, and was wondering where you were!
Hopefully it's all going to get better from here :)
