One of those days

Still feeling pretty sick, nauseated, barfy; haven't kept anything in my stomach since Sunday evening and am seriously considering asking the Dr. for some IV fluids with anti-nausea drugs. This totally sucks. I'm weak, tired, feeling icky and HATE feeling helpless and out of control of myself. Oh, add to that I hate barfing and this really is not fun for me. I think part of it is being in healthcare, I'm not used to aksing for help or having anyone take care of me. My middle son who is 18, was my "nurse" last night & today. He settled me into bed last night with a barf-bucket, some 7-up and a cool washcloth for my head. This morning, he brought me some saltines, more 7-up and a different cool cloth for my head. He's really a good kid, he'll make someone a good Dad, some day...20 years from now?

OK, back to bed for me

Don't let your past dictate who you are but let it part of who you will become.

What's the diagnosis, Blue? Flu? (no rhyming pun intended)

Yeah, it sucks when you're used to taking care of yourself. Hope you feel better soon.
