The good news is I am finally able to keep food down. Yesterday I had Sprite, water, a few crackers and some sherbet. The sherbet just sounded good and it actually really calmed my stomach. Am I feeling better? Well, I am not going to the bathroom every 30 minutes, but I woke up about 5 times last night coughing. When I woke up this morning my chest felt tight and I felt like I couldn't catch my breath. Now that I am up and more awake I don't have that feeling as bad now, but I have a feeling I have not seen the end of this horrible flu thing.
My wonderful friend who brought me the Sprite and crackers also brought me this beautiful tulip plant. My apartment really needed a plant or flowers, so it has really made the place seem more alive.
As usual my work has been wonderful. I have received calls from most of my co-workers, emails asking if I need anything and several of my techs have called saying they were thinking of me. I am sick, but from all the attention my work is giving me you would think I had something more serious then the flu. But it still feels good to know that they are thinking of me and I can call them if I need anything. I asked my co-workers N & L to let the techs know that the weekend supervisor is on vacation this weekend and to call me if they have any problems. Both N & L emailed me back and said they would have the techs call them this weekend so I could rest and get better. I know I keep saying this, but I truly have the best co-workers/friends.
When I first started getting sick Wednesday night I was really scared because I was by myself. It has been a loooong time since I have thrown up, so the feeling really scared me and it was pretty traumatic. I quickly realized that I am not alone and I have so many people that care and love me.
I really am blessed.
