We have had some business we've been trying to get squared away since Monday. It's caused me to have to be gone from the house a couple hours or so each day. Yesterday, I had to be gone from 11:00 am until 5:30 pm. Ugh. Finally got things squared away, though. I had to pick my husband up around noon yesterday and head out of town, so we needed to get lunch on the go. I was thinking Subway, but he and the kids wanted Wendy's. Well, I love Wendy's. It is my favorite fast food joint. Didn't take much convincing for me to say okay. I was in no mood for a salad or a burger sans bun, so I got the #1 combo with sweet tea. When about a fourth of the burger was left, I just sorta looked at it. I could definitely tell I'm not used to really eating a burger and fries anymore, and definitely not having all the sugar in sweet tea. I started to ditch it, but for whatever reason I kept on eating.
As the day went on, I started feeling icky. I just had this gross feeling in my stomach. Blech. I chalked it up to eating grease and sugar after not really doing so for 2 weeks. When it was almost time to leave for church, I told my husband I really thought I was gonna vomit. I still figured it was just from eating bad. He left to run the van route, and I took our four kids on to church.
By the time I got there, I felt AWFUL. There is a fouton in the Sunday School room. I grabbed a trash can, a couple pillows, a blanket, and I flopped down. I ended up staying there the whole service. About halfway through the preaching, I threw up. Ughhhhhh. I felt like I was freezing to death and kept getting cold chills and had a major headache.
When I got home, I found out that I had a temp of 100.7. I never did throw up again, but I have had other issues. Not badly, though. I only woke up once in the middle of the night. I've been fever free since about 6:30 am. I just recently got up and took a shower to feel better. I've not been eating anything except about 4 saltine crackers and 1/4 cup of fat free sherbet twice now. Definitely seems like I'm on the mend now, though, so that is good. I know there is a stomach bug going around that is really bad and lasts several days. Doesn't seem like that is gonna be the case. Whew!
It's gorgeous here today. I think I will try to get some fresh air here in a bit. I think that will help me even more. Anyway, this is why I didn't post last night. I was sick. I ate an on-plan breakfast, a terrible lunch, and no supper at all!
