Sickening Part 2

Well, it finally happened. I caught the bug that the kids had last weekend. I haven’t thrown up, but yesterday and last night, I was miserable. The chills, not hungry, aching, feeling like I might throw up, and just plain tired.

This morning when I woke up, I was obviously starting to feel better. After hanging in bed for a while, I ventured down stairs to consume a few of those great bug dietary delights – banana, ginger ale, jello, chicken noodle soup, and saltine crackers. Yum!!! Late this morning and early this afternoon, I actually made it outside to cut the grass. After a short nap later this afternoon, I am feeling okay. I expect to feel better tomorrow. We’ll see.

Being sick isn’t fun at all. Dealing with a short 24 hour (or so) bug is nothing compared to what some people I know have been dealing with…

Dan – pancreatic cancer
Anna – cancer
Mike – brain cancer
Barbara – breast cancer
Kathy – breast cancer
Grandma – aging

These are a few of the people who have been on my prayer list. If you think about it, say a prayer for them (and their families).


Until the next post, try the B.R.A.T. diet (banana, rice, applesauce, and toast), it’s great…
