I am better (a little)

My Amazon author page!!!!

Its been a five day blog vacation. Not, by choice I promise, rather by illness. It started Saturday morning – I was dizzy when I woke up, well I was dizzy when I got up to make coffee. At first it was flu-like symptoms – vomiting and the dizziness. Around 4 pm I noticed that my right ear actually felt blocked. Like there was cotton shoved into it and I couldn’t hear as well. I fell uncomfortably asleep that night and woke around 1 in the morning. I woke again around 2, 3, and then finally 4 before sleeping until 8. I didn’t wake with usual vim and vigor. After barfing the night before I felt pretty bad. I couldn’t keep anything down. Around noon I vomited again, at which point we went to the ER. I managed to make it to the ER but then puked right in front of the admissions desk (had a bowl thank goodness). Got admitted, they gave me stuff for the nausea and the dizziness and I started to feel better. I was thinking maybe Christmas vacation wouldn’t be ruined and that I might be better by Monday. (That wasn’t to be by the way).

We got back into the car after the ER process. We then drove home. Barb came a different way because the GPS wasn’t clear about a turn, which in the end turned out to be the right answer. I ended up making it to the front porch before throwing up everything I had in my stomach all over the front porch. I crawled back to bed and stayed there. I really didn’t getup or move around until Monday end of day. That was a scary experience as I couldn’t take three steps in a straight line.

For the first time in more than 18 months I won’t crack 20,000 steps this week in fitbit without a huge improvement Friday and Saturday.

I haven’t blogged in five days (of course, confined to bed not much has happened in those days so no net loss).

Feeling better today than I did yesterday (baby steps). I hope I continue to feel better every day. Because I would not wish this on anyone. It is the worst feeling ever.
