Holy Smokes.....What Hit Me?

No, not the truck, it's sitting in the driveway just fine.

 

Had a really bad night Wednesday, stayed in bed all day Thursday, and now it's Friday.

 

No fever, but plenty of chills, shakes, sweats, and going "projectile" at both the ends. Really made a mess in the bathroom, but SLW cleaned it up while I was sleeping.

 

Yeah, she's definitely a keeper!


So I don't think it's "The VIRUS!" because no fever, and I almost feel OK today, but a bit weak from no food for two days.


Been drinking water and Gatorade, and maybe (that's maybe) I'll have a slice of bread later.


I'm thinking more along the lines of "Food Poisoning", or maybe some "24-Hour Bug", but never had much belief in those.....


Back to bed. See you all tomorrow.

  2. I hope you get to feeling better soon, food poisoning is no joke, I have been hospitalized for it before.

    1. I seem to be better. Got up at 2100 and was actually hungry.

      So far I'm keeping down a can of soup and some bread.

  3. Sounds like food poisoning. One evening in Bonner Springs, KS grabbed some Mickey D before checking into the motel. Spent the next two days in that room as sick as I've ever been. Then I was fine. 2nd time I've gotten sick after eating at McDonalds. Now the only thing I will buy there is coffee.

    1. I agree, but I'm trying to figure out what it was.

      The only thing I had on Wednesday (bedliner day) that was NOT from our house was the BIG cup of coffee I got at a Schrader's.

      I had a cheese sandwich later in the day, and that might have been it, but it smelled and tasted fine.

      A SLW tossed the cheese. Not worth chancing.

    1. Thanks for your service, skybill!

      Been through some rough weather at sea, but nothing like that.

      I dropped 6 pounds in three days. At least I got rid of a few of the "Quarantine Fifteen", but it wasn't a pleasant way to do it.

  6. No, you're wrong. Everything is the Chinese Plague now, even if it isn't...

    But take care of yourself and hydration is a key ingredient.

    1. OK, I'm wrong. It's the Kung Flu/Bat Guano/Covid Creeping Crud.

      I could barely move Thursday morning, and SLW kept bringing me water. ICE COLD water...felt soooo good going down, and at least it stayed down.

      And I think I went through 4 bottles of Gatorade, and was grateful when that stayed down.

    1. Thanks, NFO. I'm feeling a lot better today, but still a bit weak in the knees.

  8. Dang, sure hope you are feeling better soon.
    IMHO, I've found Pedialyte Advanced Care Plus to be way better than Gatorade.

    1. Thanks, Ed. It wasn't pretty!

      I seem to be able to keep stuff down now, but I lost about 5 pounds the last few days.

Keep it civil, please....
