Unavoidable

Posted Jan 28 2010 12:00am

I guess it was just wishful thinking that I wouldn’t get the stomach flu since I haven’t had it since I was in 3rd grade. I’m 24 years old. I guess I’ve been lucky!

I woke up at 2:30 AM feeling nauseous and fun the continued from there- ugh!

So I called in to work, which will be my 2nd day in a row now. I hope I’m feeling better by tomorrow. I can’t believe that it will be Friday tomorrow!

So my day has consisted of waking up this morning, taking a hot bath and going back to bed. It seems like I can be up for about 2 hours and then feel to sick to stand or sit. Nothing helps but laying down flat on my back.  So then I would go back to sleep for another 1- 1 1/2 hours and the trend has continued. I’m going to try to stay up now so that I can sleep tonight.

I’ve been drinking 7 up and recently a glass of water. At 2:30 I decided to try 1/2 of an Arnold sandwich thin and so far it is staying down- 10 minutes later. So I might try some chicken noodle soup tonight and see how that goes.

Hubby stayed home again today and it was really nice to have him here. He’s been taking good care of me. :)

I’m sure that I will lose weight tomorrow morning but I know it’s not “real.” I always get excited seeing low numbers on the scale when I’m sick and then it’s a little depressing to gain it back a few days later.

Looks like my plans for the weekend are to sanitize the house!
