The Body Mutiny Continues...
Until about 3 p.m., the body mutiny continued. I stopped throwing up at 9:30 a.m., which I was grateful for because by that time, I was tossing up the water I had drank to keep myself from being dehydrated. I ate a banana, which I kept down. Unfortunately...the [ahem] "other" end continued to try to rid my body of whatever was getting on its nerves. Finally, at 3:00 p.m., I took a blanket and two pillows into our guest bathroom and laid on the floor. I really needed to sleep, but I had to get up every few minutes to use the throne so it just made sense to sleep as near as I could get to it.
As it turned out, I was able to sleep for a couple of hours on the bathroom floor and that was SO helpful. I got up and I was weak and feeling UGH, but I wasn't having to run to the bathroom every few minutes. I'm now drinking some peppermint tea and eating some crackers. I need something on my stomach as I do feel a bit hungry, but I cannot even start to think about "real" food.
I'm going to bed around 8 p.m. tonight. I'm SO tired and I think I'll feel tons better in the morning if I get some real sleep tonight.
