Well, I was so sick I decided I better go home yesterday.  I got home and went to bed.  I woke up and tried to have a cracker and something to drink.  It didn't want to stay down.  I stayed in bed all day. My legs and arms were hurting so much.  I couldn't walk after a while.  I was using my walker but my arms were so weak it was hard to get around.  Finally last night I was able to keep food down.  I was running a temp of 101.5.  My husband wanted to take me to the ER and get me a IV.  I just wasn't going anywhere.   I am doing better.  I just want to sleep now.  I am keeping food down.  My right leg doesn't work again but I am used to that.  I am using my walker because my balance is pretty bad.  Hubby is getting me a shower chair today so that I can take a shower.  
Ugh...stomach bugs suck.  I don't think I have ever been this sick from a simple stomach bug tho.  
I am already exhausted today. Time to go lay down and rest.  Have a good day DS friends.

Make sure to get plenty of fluids today so you can rehydrate and not get dizzy or dizzier. I hate the stomach crud! Once I lost 9 lbs in 3 days. Just get as much rest as you can and take it easy for as long as you need to. Gentle hugs, Linda
