~taking a beating~

Too much excitement here lately....

On Monday night I went to bed at 11pm and all was well.

At 11:15pm I was up and worshipping the porcelein god...all of a sudden....I do not know where this came from.

At 12:20am or so, it happened again.

At 1:30am or so, back to the bathroom for me again

This continued every hour ON THE HOUR until 6am.

I finally called the on-call doc who instructed me to come into the ER.

I spent 5 hours there yesterday, but miraculously was not dehydrated, but I sure was DYING for some water. I was sooooo thirsty.

Anyway, I received an anti-nausea pill and then finally was able to take in some liquids. After holding them down for 2 hours, I was released.

They never really diagnosed me there, but when I called my doctor at 4pm yesterday afternoon complaining of constant achy legs, they told me that I've probably got the Flu! Argh!

I got my Flu shot about 10 days ago. Apparently they do not offer protection until 4-6 wks afterwards. I did not know that. :-(

I was in bed just about the entire afternoon and fell asleep for the night at 8pm!!! Wow -that's early for me. I slept straight thru 'til 7am today.

I'm working this morning, but certainly not feeling 100%. Thankfully I got people to cover my shifts @ SB last night and tonight. We'll see what happens tomorrow.

Oh god that's awful, I'm sorry! I'm sorry puking has got to rank up there as one of the worst feelings in the world. Not just the puking, but the whole disgusting "Oh god I'm going to puke" feeling that comes right before it. Feel better!

And how you feel all hot and feverish right before you throw up and then you're freezing w/the chills right afterwards.

Yep, it's awful.

A few months ago David was out of town, and I woke up all of a sudden in the middle of the night with the unmistakable feeling that dinner was coming back up. I SO did not want to puke, and I laid in bed, not moving at all, saying over and over, "I will not puke, I will not puke." Thankfully, surprisingly, it went away. I think it was a fluke. I'd say you should try that next time but, somehow, I don't think it would work 6 or more times in a row.

Yeah, I would have a been pretty lucky for that to work 6-7 times.

Are you feeling better?? I've come down with a sore throat. I shouldn't complain. I'll take the sore throat over a barfing any day. Hope you feel better real soon!!!
