Plague

Well, I woke up at 3am with the dreaded stomach virus. Violently throwing up, diarrhea, the works.... Ugh. It finally slowed down around 10am but I'm still so worn out and really can only stomach water. I've truly spent the day in bed and I haven't even wanted to watch TV or get online. I was able to keep some Tylenol down b/c of major body aches and take a bath so I'm feeling a smidge better. I also weighed myself and found I've lost 4lbs. Sweet. The baby is kicking away and I am drinking, so I think she's okay.

Jason came home from work a little early b/c he was feeling tentative and knew he didn't want to be at work if it hit. And Cathy just called to say that Bryce just threw up all over the place. Grrrrrreat. At least it seems the worst part of this virus lasts only about 7 hours so we'll see how he is late tonight. My mom is coming down too to help b/c I have about as much energy as a wet rag and if Jason gets this, we're going to be up a creek without a paddle.

At least Caroline seems to have rebounded. I hope my mom doesn't get it but it seems to be pretty contagious so for your sake, stay away from my house unless you want to feel like crap for about 2 days.

Ugh. Chris and I had it a little while ago. It was just awful, but didn't last too long. I can't imagine being that sick and being pregnant and having two kids to take care of. You poor girl. Hang in there!

This is hysterical... not that you are sick... but that you also weigh yourself after a stomach virus. ;) I told my husband that most women do this (I've taken polls) and he thinks it's INSANE!!! ;) I feel like it's a silver lining in an otherwise sucky situation. ;)

Hope you are feeling better!

It's funny that youyr friend Erin mentioned the weight thing - I was thinking maybe I should come over so I can get sick and lose a few pounds........... sad but true!
