All my love, The Flu

My mom sent this to me in an email a few years ago...I find it humorous and fitting.

I will seek and find you

I shall take you to bed and have my way with you.

I will make you ache, shake & sweat until you moan & groan.

I will make you beg for mercy, beg for me to stop.

I will exhaust you to the point that you will be relieved when I'm
finished with you.

And, when I am finished, you will be weak for days.

All my love,
*The Flu*

So in case you haven't figured it out yet...I have the Flu. Surprise! Yesterday at work I started feeling really sick and had to leave early. I started puking around 8:30pm last night and was throwing up literally every 5 minutes for about 5 hours. It was awful. I was camped out in the bathroom for the whole night. I think I am doing better... I tried to eat some chicken noodle soup for lunch and that quickly came up. But the good news is I haven't thrown up since about 7pm! and I have an appetite! I'm super hungry but too scared to eat anything besides jello.

I have the best husband in the world! He didn't leave my side once the whole time I was throwing up except for when I asked him to get me things. He sat beside me and rubbed my back as I barfed in the toilet. When I finally felt better and decided to move to the bed instead of the bathroom floor he put a bowl next to the bed because I was too weak to quickly run the 5 steps it takes to get to the toilet from our bed. And he emptied and cleaned that gross bowl after every use. And he held me as I cried from being so sick of being sick even though I'm almost positive I had vomit in my hair and stunk horribly of puke and sweat. And he told his work he wasn't coming in because he had to take care of his sick wife. And the best part...late last night when I was convinced I was going to die from either barfing up my actual insides or dehydration because I couldn't even keep a sip of gatorade or water down with out it immediately coming back up... he called up his dad to come over and help him give me a priesthood blessing. I'm so grateful to have a worthy priesthood holder husband. I've never had the priesthood in my house before and it's a nice change! My husband is so great!

He's making me some rice right now I think I might be able to keep it down! Wish me luck!

P.S. did anyone watch The Office last night? Jim and Pam's cute secret wedding made me bawl my eyes out!
