Mama Deb [userpic]

I'm recovering from a rather nasty stomach virus. It hit me last night during the synagogue dinner - the dinner where my husband was being honored (along with eight or so others - we were honoring our ba'alei tefilah, our amateur cantors.) I ate half a bowl of broccoli soup, and when the main course came - not really food. I stayed until the speeches were over, although I spent part of that on a couch just off the dining room. Where instead of resting, I was "attacked" by a pair of adorable blonde sisters. They're 3 and 4 and have decided they like me. Abba was getting them ready to go, so it wasn't that bad, although they wanted to know "why" my tummy hurt.

We decided that I should call a cab to go home while Jonathan stayed and got a ride from someone, and we were on our way out when I realized I needed to be in the ladies' room RIGHT THEN. The broccoli soup didn't taste any better the second time. :( And I need to get my suit dry-cleaned now, too.

I got out, I got a hug from my thirteen year old friend (her family sat at our table, too) and Jonathan found me a ride home. Which was really unpleasant. I don't throw up easily, normally. It usually takes so much effort I break the capillaries around my eyes and I look like I have a red raccoon mask. I have a permanently burst one in one eyelid. But not this time. And, well, there were other purging going one. By the time it ended, not only was I running a major deficit in water, and I swear I tasted breakfast cereal, too, but I think there was noting at all left in my system. Completely empty. This is why I think it was a virus - Byetta (which I did not take today) can cause nausea and even vomiting, but not diarrhea.

Food is sitting happily now, and I'm drinking water, so things are settling down. But it was a nasty night. And we have a new placque for the wall, too.


Ugh. I'm sorry you had to go through that. Lousy timing!

According to jonbaker, everyone at the dinner got worried about me, too. Even our rabbi.

Really bad timing, but I'm doing better.

What awful timing for a stomach virus! Glad to hear that you're starting to feel better now.

Tell me about it!

Work wiped me out a bit, but, yes, I'm fine now.

Sounds awful :(

Wasn't fun, I'll tell you that. And I wish I could have taken today off.
