From Thursday to Sunday I stayed home, eating almost nothing and being miserable with a stomach flu. Robert was such an amazing nurse and took great care of me, including homemade chicken soup :)
Being the tough and hardy American that I am ;), I refused to go to the hospital until the last possible moment. Finally on Sunday I was so weak and dehydrated that I finally decided to get checked out, and get on an IV. They took my blood, did some x-rays and then just let the IV do it's magic. I felt stronger as I got the fluids.
(My first IV)
just 'cuz I'm tough like that
The final verdict on the stomach bug? It was caused by one of three things: something I ate, something I drank, or just a bacteria I picked up from being around kids. No biggie...
So, it was back to juke (rice porridge) for another day
I lost a little bit of weight which set my co-teachers on a self-proclaimed mission of getting me "back to health":) Tuesday night was Sally's dinner treat and Thursday night is Gloria's treat. They crack me up!
Let's just say, I am so happy to feel well again!
