Illness to Boot

Saturday morning, Sweetie came home early from a sleep-over party with vomiting & diarrhea. She was feeling better by early afternoon so I began to think that is was perhaps an allergy (celiac's) rather than the flu. However, Buddy woke up around 11 p.m. Sunday night with the same symptoms so I knew then that it was bound to catch me, too. Within a few hours, I was down for the count.

I honestly don't recall ever having been so sick. DH said, "You look like death warmed over." Thankfully, he stayed home to watch the kiddos because there was nothing I could do. I had to lay down all day... if I stood up, I got dizzy and nauseous. By the early evening, my body ached terribly - I couldn't get comfortable - my back hurt so much I was in tears. I have a pretty high tolerance for pain and this really knocked me down. I took a few ibuprofen and thankfully was able to get to sleep. I slept until about 7 this morning.

I was nervous to stand up but fortunately only a tiny bit of dizziness that subsided quickly. I walked around, picked up a few things. I made breakfast. I actually felt normal so I decided to go to Masters like usual. Fortunately, it was an easy day...

400m warm-up (I arrived a little late)
6 x 50m backstroke drill w/ paddles
4 x 200m freestyle
100m cool-down
1600m total


  1. I hope you're feeling better. Take care of yourself!

  2. Blech! Glad you got your flu out of the way early this year!!! Get better!!

  3. Hope you feeling ok now. Lots of nasty stuff going around.

  4. You still went to Masters? You're a woman of steel!
