Screeeeeeech ... that's my life coming to a halt. I woke up at 5am this morning to a killer pain in my abdomen and before I knew what was happening I had thrown up the contents of my stomach, last night's delicious dinner, in my bed. Yuuuuuuuck!!!! Not a good time to discover that my mattress pad is NOT waterproof. Bloody Hell!!!
My life for the past 10 hours has been an orgy of pain and every time I tried to drink even a tablespoon of water, out it came spewing from both ends of my body with a force and intensity that would make one think I'd swallowed the Nile. I know "once a man and twice a child" but I thought I had some years to go yet before I started crapping on myself again.
We called the medical hotline and apparently there is a vomit and diarrhea bug making its rounds through London. GREAT!!! The cure is rest and plenty of water to avoid dehydration. Kind of hard to do Lady, when every time I drink it causes severe cramps and projectile vomiting, not to mention ....
My honey went to the pharmacy and secured a miracle drug for me. You stick it under your front lip and it dissolves slowly and dissipates the nausea and vomiting. I've just woken up and am testing the waters again ... pun intended ... and low and behold minimal pain and no vomiting.
Now I have to try to down 8 - 12 cups of water over the rest of the day, to flush my system and rehydrate my body.
Did I mention I'm STARVING!!!
