Flu Friday

My case of "drag ass" yesterday turned out to actually be a stomach flu. I felt worse and worse as the day progressed, and by the time I went to bed last night I had a fever and was nauseous.

The barfing started around 1 am and continued through the night and early morning; then the 'rhea kicked in and I didn't know which end to put on the toilet. It was awful.

All day today, I have essentially been a pile of dehydrated goo, unable to keep anything down until late this afternoon. Thankfully, Jerry took the day off work so he could take care of Norah this morning, and this afternoon, he took her to DC.

I don't think I've been sick like this in years. Ughhhh...

Hopefully I feel better tomorrow for Halloween festivities. Which I think I will. I'm able to keep down Ramen and Ginger Ale now. Woo-hoo!

Oh Yikes, personally I've never figured out why no one has designed a bathroom where you can "Sh*t & puke" at the same time....

Get better soon!!

Maybe you're meant to be a zombie for halloween and the sickness is just to give you the living dead look temporarily.

Jess, I feel for you, I'm down for the count also! I don't have all of your symptoms but feeling like crap. Hopefully you'll be better for Halloween.

That's the worst kind of sickness, when it's coming out of both ends.
