Sicker than a dog

Wow, I don't think I have ever experienced a real 24-hour disease before yesterday… I apparently caught the 24-hour stomach flu. 3 a.m. I woke up with an upset stomach. The day before I stuffed myself silly, so I thought I was just paying for that. Oh no… by late afternoon my system was completely empty, I had absolutely no energy (I couldn't even lift my fingers to type most of the day), and my entire body was so sensitive everywhere that I felt like one big bruise. The worst was my lower back, which made sitting and lying down excruciating.

I felt so horrible because I have not vomited in over a decade, and yesterday I did twice. It was that bad… I can't even begin to explain just what a mess I was! I tried to get some additional sleep, but I could not keep myself warm. So I had a sweater and a blanket wrapped around me underneath the covers without success. Poor Hoyt, when we finally went to bed, me all wrapped up, had to put up with my icy hands and feet because he was like a pool of heat I couldn't resist. :-p And about 3 a.m. I woke up from the heat! It was definitely 24-hour. But now that my stomach is completely empty, it's hungry but still very sensitive. What a pain.
