Ok so not really but it sure should be! My wonderful holiday weekend was totally ruined by the FLU. No, not H1N1. I got the good old fashioned gastrointestinal flu.
It hit about an hour after I got home on Friday [thank goodness it waited until I got home!] and from then on it was pretty much the couch or bathroom for me all weekend! On Saturday I wasn’t throwing up anymore but my tummy still felt gross so I still couldn’t eat. Friday and Saturday I hurt absolutely everywhere and found it hard to sleep more than a couple hours at a time. I finally tried a piece of toast Sunday morning after not eating since lunch on Friday and it stayed down and in so I was deemed “well” by mom and allowed to go to the family “Happy ThanksMas” [so named because we were technically celebrating Christmas but it was the day after Halloween and we had to fit Thanksgiving in there somewhere]. So I attended the festivities and ate more than my tummy thought appropriate and felt not so hot by the time we left. When I got home I went straight to bed again. [yup, that’s my exciting weekend for ya!]
I must say that I fared far better than my aunt and friend Christy who DO have H1N1 – both have come down with pneumonia as a result of that particularly nasty bug! I’m praying that they both get better soon!
Upside of this weekend, on Friday morning I was down 6lbs from my stupid hypo/cancer weight gain… now I'm down a total of 12lbs! I’m sure that will come back on as soon as I can get rehydrated but I will enjoy it while it lasts! ;o)
