I have been out of commission this week due to having gastroenteritis. It started Monday morning about 4am and I ended up in the ER by Tuesday. I’m on 2 antibiotics that make me sick to my stomach and I can pretty much only handle rice and applesauce in small quantities. I don’t feel any better than I did Tuesday so I’m giving it until Monday (when the antibiotics run out) and then I’ll make another appointment with my doctor.
Thankfully, I’m not throwing up or other nasty symptoms, just not hungry and a slight pain in my lower left abdomen. Do you have any idea how boring it is to eat white rice multiple days in a row? And we’re talking about 1/4cup or less of the stuff, just enough to help make me not feel nauseous when taking the meds? It is BORING!
On the plus side, I’ve lost about 5lbs and gotten some quality reading time. But I won’t be real active here online, as you might have noticed.
