I woke up this morning after being sick all night, crawled out of bed and got ready for work. After throwing up three times in less than an hour, I just gave up and took the day off work. I hated to do that to everyone since we had a big old truck delivery today, but I think they’d rather I not give them whatever it is I have…feels a lot like the flu, maybe a mild case…hopefully I’ll feel better in the morning.
One positive about being sick is the calorie intake certainly plummets!! All I really tried to do today was drink, was hospitalized once years ago with dehydration and don’t want a repeat of that. I’m still feeling a little icky (yes, that’s a medical term, ask any doctor), but I hope I’m on the mend.
Now on to the negative part of being sick, beyond the obvious ickiness of it, no exercise. Just a lot of sleeping and trips back and forth to the bathroom. Blah. Felt so bad for most of the day that I didn’t even log on to the computer…now you know that’s some kind of sick!
Spooky enjoyed the day though. She slept cuddled up to me all day. Then I came downstairs to watch Days of Our Lives and she came down to sit on my lap as I’m sitting on the stability ball. She kind of watches television, or at least the fast movements. See, I think she actually sees what’s on the tv because she loves to watch the bird shows on Animal Planet or PBS. Hmm…should I leave the tv on for her when I go to work? Nah…I think she spends most of her day under the comforter on my bed.
So I got a flu shot a week ago, do you think there’s any possibility that I’m feeling sick because of that? I’ve always poopood that, and still don’t really think you can get the flu from a flu shot. What do you think?
