Well, I can't even remember how many times I've run to the bathroom today. I do know that I weigh about 5 pounds less tonight than I did last night...possibly more.
Around 5ish this morning I was trying to put a video in the VCR so Bethany could watch. I remember being frustrated that I couldn't get the tape to go into the VCR. I remember thinking I felt very weak and out of it. The next thing I know, Bethany was rubbing my shoulder and cheek and asking if I was ok. I must have fainted. I have NEVER fainted before in my life. I told Bethany to go get Daddy. He came out and helped me up, just in time to run to the bathroom again. What a night. What a day. I have spent almost the entire day on the couch, or on the floor. I slept a lot. I still feel pretty horrible, weak, shakey, and very thirsty. But if I take more than a few sips I feel really sick again.
My grandpa always said that a chocolate malt would help whatever was ailing you. So, this afternoon I sent Hubby to Wendy's to get me a frosty. That is the only thing that I have managed to keep down today. Bethany held down a pnut butter sandwich, some crackers, lemon-lime soda, and part of my frosty...but the chocolate milk came right back up (while I was on the phone with my dad..sorry dad!)
Hubby had a "date" with the youth group tonight to see Narnia Prince Caspian. The kids and I were all supposed to go with them, but decided to stay home. We'll go as a family this weekend. Hubby won't be home till 11 or so, but the kids are in bed and I'll be heading that way very soon.
I felt just horrible that I couldn't celebrate the end of the school year with the kids. Hubby did such a great job of getting them both up and around and getting them to school on time. He's such a great dad and husband,I truly don't know what I'd do without him!
Abbie was invited to a swim party for this evening and my great friend Jacque was kind enough to come and be Abbie's transportation. I just didn't think I should be driving in my condition!
My family in Wichita was all gathered to celebrate my grandma's birthday. I called to tell her happy birthday (my dad's cellphone) and that's when Bethany lost her chocolate milk. So after I got it cleaned up I called back and got to talk to both Grandma and Grandpa. Grandma gets quite weepy quite often and of course couldn't even talk to me for a few minutes. She wishes we could have been there...I wish we could have, too...but I told her that we were sick and she didn't really want us around. She is suffering from Alzheimer's, so she tends to repeat herself a lot, I miss them all! On a day like today you REALLY miss your family!
I'm sorry for the scattered brained post...I can't think strait. Good night all, I hope we ALL get a good night's rest.
