When they advise plenty of fluids when you're sick, they mean it.
Well, I think I'm going to live a little longer. This virus knocked me out for over a week. I have felt BAD, but I think I'm finally on the mend. My house is destroyed - when mom's sick that happens. I can't complain, though. My husband really has been so great this week when I was just unable to do anything except lie on the couch and moan while the world spun dizzily around me. I cannot say enough about his sweet attention to all the things that he did this week.
I went back to the doctor yesterday because I was just not getting better. Turns out I managed to become extremely dehydrated in the midst of all the crumminess, so now that I'm drinking and forcing myself to eat again I am finally starting to feel better. Not yet 100 per cent, but on the mend.
I just looked at my Google reader and there are 175 unread posts in there. I have really dropped off the blog world map lately. Maybe I'll get back soon. I miss it. Until then, I'm off to drink some more Gatorade.
