Bad for me--nice for Zane

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Monday morning at 3:00 am, I woke up with horrible pain in my belly and started to vomit until there was nothing left inside me. I was also purging violently.

As soon as it was late enough to call someone, I called a friend to take me to the ER where I was diagnosed with a severe colonic and duodenal infection and sent home with a cocktail of drugs in me. I followed up with my own doctor today, who has ordered me to rest through Monday and not to think of going back to work until Tuesday.

Why good for Zane? As I spend all my time either in bed or on the big recliner, he's getting lots more cuddle time than usual.

I'm feeling somewhat better, mostly because of the drugs, but they make me very sleepy and stupid. Although I'm not vomiting any more, even the BRAT diet gives me a stomach ache. Also, from all the vomiting, the muscles of my ribcage are sore, so it hurts to cough or sneeze. I have very little energy; doing almost anything just wears me out. Again, Zane likes this as I spend a lot of horizontal time, when he can drape himself over me like a live heating pad.

Oh my goodness! That must have been hours worth of living hell

Zane looks like a big, toasty heating pad Cats know when we're not well. I think they pick up on the vibes. So aloof and yet so understanding!

Sorry you're under the weather. Glad you're starting to feel better. Aren't live heating pads lovely?
