About the flu

Written by Shannon Leigh

Yesterday I had the flu.
I wasn't convinced that it was the flu at first.
I thought it was just indigestion so I took some tums, laid in a ball, etc.
It wasn't until the 7th time I threw up that I was convinced.
I proceeded to throw up 15 times, pulling a muscle in my back and breaking a blood vessel in my neck.
I was basically tossing large intestine sludge (term coined by my sister, Brooke).

I even had to cancel a shoot, bleh.
I've never had to do that before.

Matt had a busy day so I was home alone with the baby.
I thought I was going to die.

Seriously, the flu is WORST.
I decided to take a nice hot bath to relieve the nausea.
I let Ruby (and Izzy for that matter) play in the water by the side of the tub because I was desperate.
They were both soaked.

I also let Ruby watch LOTS of TV.
I think her brain is mush now.

I now have lots of sympathy for those poor women who have really bad morning sickness. I don't know how they do it.

I feel much better today. Still a little woozy and weak.
I'm praising the Lord that yesterday is over.

MISSION DISINFECT is now in full swing.

I'm getting a massage tomorrow.

And because it's my blog and I don't think I ever posted these...
