Thursday, April 12, 2018 – My Sick Day

Well, we got proof today that Hubby's sickness the other day had nothing to do with a lack of dialysis! It was most definitely a bug of some kind because it hit me last night like a brick wall. I had all the same symptoms, seriously bad diarrhea, but I managed to avoid the vomiting, though I felt nauseous. I took Pepto right away, hoping to minimize the impact, but I was still feeling really bad. I slept for over 12 hours, managed to get up for a short while, but was so weak and my muscles were so sore, I crawled back into bed by 2:00 and slept through the afternoon. I kept up with the Pepto, which helped, but I was just completely wiped out. Then, just about 4:30 in the afternoon, I felt a flush go from my head to my toes and back again, and like magic, I started to feel better. Maybe I had a fever that broke or something (I hadn't had the wherewithal to check that), but I started feeling better. Hubby was feeling well enough to get himself a couple of soft-boiled eggs for himself, but I just couldn't eat anything, except one piece of toast in the hopes of absorbing some acids. I slowly improved through the evening, though we went to bed before dark and had lights out not too long after that. Not sure how much sleep I'll get after sleeping for more than 18 hours straight already!
