Where Have I Been?

Sorry I've been MIA since last Tuesday..I was victim to a terrrrrible GI virus all last week.  Everything was fine and dandy last Monday and then everything went to shit and went downhill when I came home from work that evening.

When I got home, I laid down on the sofa and eventually I had a fever when I woke up from an unintentional nap--I checked my temperature Monday night when I got in bed and it was around 102.3 so I did what any normal individual would do and took some Tylenol and went to bed.  I woke up Tuesday feeling just as gross but chalked it all up to missing my Monday night dose of antibiotics because of that nap. Well, Tuesday morning I threw up on my walk with Rusty and I had a fever all morning even with taking Tylenol but I figured it would eventually go away so I went to work anyway with a massive headache and fever.  Let me just say, Tuesday day was unbearable. When I got home, it was like a repeat of Monday night but worse. My fever had gotten up to 102.9 so my mom told me to take more Tylenol and then go to sleep so I did. WELL, I woke up Wednesday feeling TERRIBLE.  I started throwing up around 7-7:15am and it didn't stop until around 11am when my mom got to my house.  In between running to the bathroom, I called my mom and my doctor and I made an appointment with him in Danville for that afternoon so my mom left to come pick me up from my house since I could barely hold my head up.  It was so uncomfortable because I was beyond nauseous all morning/day/afternoon.  My mom got me to Danville in time for my doctor's appointment and that took almost two hours so that was a lot of fun. They tried to take blood (when one arm fails, just try the other one!) and then I fell asleep while we waited for the results and from there my doctor told me it was a virus, gave me an RX for a super powerful anti-nausea medicine and we were off.  My  mom took me to Target to get my meds and stock up on gatorade  since it was/is the only thing I can stomach. After, I just passed out for the next 18 hours. Annnnd that was my Wednesday & Thursday last week.

The rest of the week were a bit of a blur with a dash of depression on Saturday because I was way too weak to run in one of my favorite 5Ks in Danville- the Nestle 5K they hold every year during Festival in the Park weekend.  Also depressing= missing Festival.  My mom took me to Festival just to get a little change of scenery on Saturday so I went and was totally exhausted after.  When we got home, I literally slept for 5-6 hours without any benadryl inducement! 

Needless to say, the past week away from my blog (I left my computer here in Greensboro all week) was rough but it was nice to be able to get rest, sleep, and recover from the virus without the distraction of keeping up with my blog posts!  Don't worry, this week I will be back in full force with my posts, even though I'm still too weak for any kind of exercise (still can't stomach any food). 

Finally, i would like to dedicate this post to the 3 things that got me through last week: Rusty, my momma, and yellow gatorade.

How do you deal with unexpected illnesses? Do you still need your mom's TLC when you're sick like me??!
