Knocked on my Bum

Sunday morning I woke up at 4 with a crabby tummy and aching everywhere.  I went back to sleep hoping to feel better with more sleep.  No such luck.  I had a list of things I wanted to get done and none of them got done.  Progressively throughout the day I got worse and worse.  I’ll spare the details as it wasn’t pretty.

I had the flu.  I’ve not had it in years and years so I guess it was my turn.  It knocked me on my bum to say the least.  I was home yesterday all day and did nothing more than sleep and watch tv.  I felt like a slug and the thought of food was awful.  Apples were okay, the tang of them was good and didn’t seem to set off my stomach.

Ken’s ring bologna for supper did not sit well.  I can’t eat it because it has too much fat in it so even if I hadn’t been sick I wouldn’t have eaten it but the smell of it was at the same time tantalizing and nauseating.

Yesterday I managed an apple or maybe two, crackers, a popsicle and water.  Today I feel less tired and more human.  I managed to get up and showered but after that I was wiped out.  I feel like I ran a marathon.  At some point I suppose I have to think about food.  Ken will be home in a couple house so if nothing else, I will wait for him.  I’m not in any hurry to upset the calm that has finally returned.

Tomorrow I go back to work barring any relapses.  I realized last night I missed a meeting yesterday that was important so it will be interesting to find out the result of it or if they opted to reschedule.  Mostly I just want a nap.  I might have to take one.
