Just another excuse

So, after the last post l thought l'd be blogging again sooner than now! Turns out l went downhill quickly with the stomach flu (gastroenteritis)- oh joy. Yesterday evening l was discharged from the hospital after an overnight there. I went in on the Sunday and was immediately hooked up to the IV and got an injection for the nausea. It was the worst sick bug l've ever had - l hadn't eaten for 5 days and was very very dehydrated - couldn't even keep water down. Anyway after an overnight on the IV = 8+bags later and a few more meds/blood tests l was able to return home.
My husband, Gerald deserves a medal for the way he has looked after me and our family this past week. He has rushed around shopping, cleaning and cooking. All l could do was stay in bed. He has been both mum and dad and is the very best husband l could ever wish for. Thanks love!!!
I am just so glad to be feeling normal again and tonight l had my first proper meal - woo hoo! On the brighter side, l've lost a bit of weight which will do me no harm and l have learned to never EVER leave it so late before making an appointment to see the doctor. We are never too old to learn.
I have to also say how lovely the hospital staff were - so many people make the effort to complain but we will be writing a letter of thanks for the great job they did and their kindness.
I hope you are all in good health. bests all.

ps- Hubby couldn't believe l was dehydrated, not with the amount of Gin l drink (wink)...he actually said that!

Wow, what an ordeal - the gastro is just the worst thing, glad to hear you are back in the land of the living. Making fun of you for gin! Ha! See what happens when you get a Blackberry. ;)

Dear Sarah ~~ I am so sorry you had this gastro attack and got dehydrated
But glad you are on the mend. Congrats to your hubby for looking after you and the family.
I am so happy that you survived that trauma. It is so easy to get dehydrated. Take better care of you dear friend. Much love, Merle.
