Thursday evening, about 6:30 or so, I started feeling bad. I had a irritating headache and I felt dizzy. I was also nauseous and had stomach cramps. Mike put me to bed and I went to sleep.

About 11:00, I woke up and got sick. Luckily I made it to the bathroom! Between 11:00 and 6:00, I got sick 4 or 5 times. My head was also pounding.

Mike got up and went to the grocery store for me. He got Emetrol(R), Pepto Bismal(R), juice, Sprite (R), and some soups for me to try to eat. He then tried to tuck me back in, but I was so uncomfortable. By this time, I started aching in my joints.

I finally drifted off about 8:00. But, I woke up at 9:30 having to urinate. I wrote down the time, so I could see if I was getting dehydrated. Between 9:30 and 5:30, I urinated 20+ times. Everytime I went, it would hurt. I also got sick about 5 or 6 times in that time. Everytime I tried to get to sleep, I would have to urinate. It was so irritating.

When Mike got home, we went to Pri-Med. I got sick in the bathroom twice while we were there. They checked me out and the doctor told me I had a virus that lots of people in Montgomery have had. I had all the symptoms he described.

The nurse gave me a shot of phenergen (anti-nausea medicine). I've never been so grateful for a shot of anything! Afterward, I was sent home, quite inebriated.

I slept through the night and awoke Saturday morning about 10:00. I was no longer nauseous, but I was weak and sore. I ate some food. And then, I went back to sleep. I woke up around 2:00 and stayed awake through Candice and Steven's visit. I went back to sleep and slept until Sunday morning, around 8:00.

I feel better now. I'm still sore, but I feel so much better! I have decided to invest in 1 gallon of injectable Phenergen. It's a miracle drug!
