Horrible 48 Hours

Well, I think I'm finally on the upside of being sick. Went to see the doctor yesterday morning due to severe cramping on my left side too low to be one of the ladies and running a fever. After a bunch of tests I have the virus that is going around (dreaded diarrhea and additional GI issues) AND a really bad urinary tract infection. Yea, go me. *Sigh*

48 LONG hours later I'm finally eating a little and the GI issues are getting better. I'm on amoxicillin for the urinary tract infection and hopefully things will all clear up soon. I'm hoping to go back to work tomorrow as I'm not a very good patient and I can't deal with another day of sleeping and watching Oprah.

Anyone have good suggestions on regaining your strength after a bad sickness? Bah.


  1. I'm sorry to hear you have been so sick!! I'm glad you are getting your infection treated. Good luck with finding out step one tomorrow :) Will be thinking of you. Let me know how it goes and remember I am here to talk!

  2. Darn viruses. They just won't die, even with the sub zero weather we have been having here. So sorry that you are sick and feeling icky. It is my least favorite thing to have to deal with. Glad that you were able to go to the doctor and get some antibiotics to help. Take small steps and you will be back to yourself in no time. As for regaining your strength, I think that plenty of rest and lots of fluids and eventually eating again are the best keys to accomplishing that. Then, after you get some strength back, try doing a little exercise, it always does a body good. :) I hope this helps, or maybe I am just crazy? :) (lol) Get Well Soon!!!!!!!

    Hugs and blessings,
