There is light...

at the end of the tunnel! I haven't mentioned it, but I have been sicker than I have been in years. It has gone on for just about 2 weeks now. The kind of sick where you are nauseous, everything you drink or eat, comes back out, and so tired that it is hard to function. Yep, that has been me. I am not one that likes to complain. I have gotten a few sweet phone calls, asking if I was ok. Maybe my blog says more about me than I thought. :) I have been having tests ran, and have been to the Dr. 3 times in 10 days. Soooo not fun! So far my tests are coming back good. I was actually getting a little nervous. Yesterday the Dr. told me that there is a flu that they have only seen in a few adults this year. It is one that totally knocks you flat out. Well, I am thinking I just upped the number of patients that have had this. I told the Dr. I have to get better...I am going to Utah next week! I am sure there had to be humor from hearing that. She told me to take the nausea medication, drink Gatorade, water, and rest. That is the hardest part! I have such a hard time letting myself actually rest. I did take the nausea medication. NEVER again! It knocked me flat out! Drugged flat out. I felt like I was on a different planet. So I have been drinking a lot of Gatorade, and water. I am feeling better this morning! I am praying that I have served my sick time, and the sickness is leaving my body. K, enough of the drama about me! I hope everyone is having a happy morning, and enjoying the cooler temperatures!

Hope you kick this soon and are back to feeling good again! maybe you need a book to keep you resting and occupied! did you read the twilight series? it is enough to suck you in and keep you resting for a day of two but not to heavy to make you tired or have to concentrate much! perfect sick bed reading! feel better soon!

I am so sorry that you are sick....espically for two weeks. Glad that you are finally feeling better. I was only sick for three days...and it knocked me flat on my back.

This explains a lot!
It has seemed as though you disappeared, and I'm so, so sorry for your misery! I think I am familiar with that anti-nausea drug. My last two pregnancies were 7 of the 9 months throwing up! There is no functioning on that drug...gratefully they gave me a better one called Zofran (?). It works wonders!

Hope you recover VERY SOON!!!

Michelle, I am sorry you feel so sick! And that flu you were talking about is rare? I know of a handful of people that have been super sick here the past month- my mom and dad both, and my mom is NEVER sick but she was out for a long time. This was right around the time I found out I was pregnant, so at first I was thinking I was getting the flu too, but it ended up being morning sickness- not sure which one I would rather have! :)
Get some rest- I am jealous of your trip to Utah, can you pack me in you luggage?!?!

Oh no!!! :( So sorry to hear it has gone on for so long - that's awful!

You need to stop trying to be so strong and let people help once in a while (hard for me too...).

Wish I were closer & I'd deliver some soup to you.

I'm sorry you're sick! Are they sure it's the flu and not feeling naseous from the kidney stone? I've been throwing up non stop for 2 weeks now as well because of kidney stone pain - so not fun! I'm with you on the medication - it's worse than the throwing up! I hope you get better soon so you can enjoy your utah trip! sometime you'll have to come when we can get together. I'd love to meet you sometime!
