Well, we had such a fun weekend planned. On Friday, Tal and the kids and I went to Centerville, TN to see some good friends for the day. It was great, we had so much fun seeing Steve and Steph Tallent and their little girl, Noelle. They own the vitamin company that I have advertised, GREAT STUFF!!! You should check them out.....
So on the way, we had Sonic and I had a not so good tasting sausage and toast. I decided not to finish it. Then all day on Friday, I felt a little queasy. I thought it was car sickness, but could not put my finger on it. Friday night we had chinese takeout and I still felt off but not bad. Then Saturday morning I got up to let Ebony, Big Daddy's help in, and ate a chocolate chip cookie before laying back down for awhile. When I got up, I felt queasy still, but dismissed it as eating a cookie before anything good.
I was so excited to see the Tennessee/Arkansas game and had been razing all my AR family and friend. By game time, I was freezing and wanting to lay down. I got under a huge blanket and got a pillow and layed in front of the TV. I felt horrible by the second half. Then by the middle of the third quarter was sicker than a dog. I could not keep anything in me for the next seven hours. I thought it had calmed down, when it started up again. Finally, Tal insisted I go to the hospital, being a nurse, that was not my favorite option. But I went because I felt so horrible. Once there, they took my vitals and immediately admitted me. (I am glad that I was not a betting woman because I would have lost. I thought I would have sat in the waiting room for hours.) They got an IV in me and put in two bags of fluid fast. My blood pressure had been 80/30s and heart rate was in the 190's. No wonder I was hurting and feeling sick. Then my temperature was 102. I was soooooo sick. But after four liters of fluids and some medicine, they finally discharged me home at five in the morning. They insisted that I had just a bad virus. But I told them they were so wrong. It was definitely a case of food poisoning. And still insist that it was.
It has taken me several days, but I am finally on the mend. I actually ate chili tonight and felt reasonably okay after it. So watch out for the sausage at Sonic....side note, I still love their drinks!
And a belated happy birthday to Grammy! We go to go surprise her yesterday, what FUN!! We love you, Grammy, and wish we were closer. Each day we spend together is so much fun and just a blessing to be with you. You are a great mom and grandma! Thanks for being you!
So to all our family, friends, stalkers, and any other genre of readers out there, we are are thankful for our health, the joy that God has given us, the peace that Jesus brings, and this truely wonderful time of the year. God bless you all!
