That Sucked

K. So as for my last post on here..I had just become ill. After that ...the worst Flu bug ever struck me...VIOLENTLY, and is still attacking me to this day a little, but it's becoming better and better everyday. I am hoping for full relief by this weekend but not counting on it.

So. On Friday my illness started in the late morning/ afternoon with tummy cramps and " toilet running " nothing I couldn't handle. THEN came the extreme and I do mean extreme nausea. Kinda felt like i was on a large boat all by myself ready to get sick but the boat just kept on rocking to make me worse. Then just after supper Mike and I thought we would go out for a light stroll wit the kiddies to get some fresh air. NOT A GOOD IDEA. Only to have stopped 5-7 times to chat with friendly neighbours-my tummy had other ideas. It started cramping up to the point where I had to crouch down to the ground & pretend I was playing with the kids meanwhile I was trying to hide the agony my tummy was putting me through. And to make things even better you did not want to get up fast or you would fall from becoming dizzy..and of course the DO NOT Pass Wind as you will leave a surprise if you do..if you know what I mean. I'm pretty sure I burned a ton of calories that night just squeezing my buttocks together to get home.
Finally arrived home, got the kids to bed and I tried to rest on the couch, but kept groaning in pain, and so uncomfy. Mike then stated that I might want to try a warm bath, so I took his suggestion and off I went, slipped into the warm tub trying to kept my "floating belly" under the water.lol. I'm pretty sure I was in there for maybe half an hour or so, and i decided to get out( as I am not one for baths). So I stood up and stepped out of the tub. That's when I knew I was in trouble. I yelled for Mike with a panic stricken voice: " Mike, Mike, MIKE". Finally he heard me and came pouncing into the bathroom, I then said in a slightly off voice : " Somethings wrong I can't stand up, catch me...I was resting in his arms with a towel draped over my body when I pulled back as I felt sick again then...I fell to the floor-yep there lay my large wet naked body on the bathroom floor. I was as listless as a dead dandelion in the summer heat. I know Mike was asking me questions and I do recall one was: " What do you want me to do"? My first response is: " Call my mom"!...I want my mom!! So indeed that's what he did. She told him to lay me on the couch and make me rest as much as I could. So I tried, but no luck I then called her back and said I feel like I'm in another world..not even here. She says to me :" Oh honey..just rest you are going to get sick tonight VERY SICK but once you do you will feel soooo much better.
And on that note, she was right. I can actually say that I have never ever been that violently ill in my life that I can recall. And like I said I still am not feeling up to par yet..this bug sucks!
But a big thank you go out to Mike and my mom and Gloria for helping out with watching the kiddies for us and being here at the house for me mom....and Mike well thanks for being here through all my dramatic episodes I had this sickness, your a great husband..I love you.

Oh Chrissy, I hope your feeling better soon. It's no fun being sick, especially when your the one who needs to be the one who keeps the 'household' going! Feel better soon.

That sounds horrible! I'm so glad you're starting to feel better. Being sick sucks when you're the mom. Well, it sucks no matter what but it seems worse when you're a mom....
