Yesterday morning we got up extra early to take Moustapha to the airport. I was feeling pretty run down, but it was understandable. I hadn't slept very well. Mary and I got home and played in the front yard for a while, and she went down for a nap around 10:30. By Noon I was shivering, and my head was killing me. I could hardly keep my eyes open, so I crawled in to bed. At three, I finally woke to find Mary playing quietly in her crib (thank God). I did not feel any better, as a matter of fact, I felt worse. My stomach hurt, all my muscles and joints ached, I was shivering, I had these nasty electric shock feelings every time my skin touched anything including my clothes, and I had a splitting head ache. By five I wanted to die. Mary was obviously not feeling great either, she hardly ate any supper at all, all she wanted to do was cuddle, and she was in bed asleep by 6:30, and I followed at around 7:30.
Today was much of the same, only with a later wake up time, no airport, and some grocery shopping. Oh yeah, and some really nasty toilet business and emesis for me. I do feel a wee bit better tonight, I don't want to die right now, which is a nice change. I have been drinking Pedialyte to keep myself hydrated due to the above mentioned toilet business. Have you ever tasted that crap? Nasty nasty stuff. I gag every time I drink it, but it is apparantly better for me than Dr. Pepper, so I'm going to be a trooper and keep it up. I do keep thinking that it might just be easier to drink plain old water, but oh well.
Anyways, wish me luck getting over this nasty bug, I think that I might need it.
