Quick Update On My Health

So just when I thought I was out of the woods… I actually got sicker. This is the first time I have been able to sit up all day. Fever is spiking to 103 and the stomach pains are still present.

This was the first day in 4+ years that I didn’t work on INO and I didn’t call anyone to cover me. I just didn’t have the energy. So this morning no stories went live. It killed me to do it – but I couldn’t move.

I went to the doctor and he said if I am not better by tomorrow he is going to put me on some antibiotics. I don’t know why we have to wait until tomorrow. Why not just start them today? Or on Saturday when I went to the hospital? I’ve been like this since Thursday night and it’s just getting worse. That seems like something to address.

I tried to get through my emails as best as I could and canceled my appointments until next Monday. I just don’t see a quick recovery in my future. This virus is crazy.

I appreciate everyone’s kind words.

  1. Oh, no!
    What a nusty stomach virus. Really hope you feel better soon and you don’t have to even think about INO. Your family needs you healthy and happy the rest of us will wait as long as you need it. Your health is the main focus!

    On the positive note(i know i’m being a little bit selfish here, sorry), eeeeeeeeyi for me, i can see the blog and i CAN post messages! Don’t know what different you did with it, but it works for me perfectly!!!

    Hugs and well wishes to you and the family! Get your very best soon!!!

  2. Oh my goodness. Sounds like a horrible couple of days! How terrifying. I really hope you feel better soon.

  3. Vera I’m so worried about you. I can’t believe you are still so sick. I hope you have a speedy recovery from here on out ….and that maybe the antibiotics actually do something if you get them today. It is a virus right? Not your appendix or anything? Hang in there. Sleep! xo col
