'cause Elnora and I have.

I'm back from New York, but now recovering from a nasty case of food poisoning...I'll be back in another day or so for some serial posting. (I've got at least a dozen topics to cover...so prepare for a posting onslaught.)

    :( Yuck.

    My last bout of food poisoning was while I was pregnant--one of the two times I threw up.

    Hope you both feel better soon!

    Hope you feel better...food poisoning really is lousy!

    I hope that you and Elnora feel better right away!
    (And never have to repeat this experience. Ever.)

    It's bad, Jenn, it's very very bad. I can not imagine one of my kids getting it.

    Feel better!

    Ouch....So sorry. I hope you are all feeling better.

    Sorry you have it. I hope you feel better quickly!

    I had it 3 times. The first time was VERY bad. The other times were "mild" (in comparison with the first).

    I knew something was wrong when I started vomiting. I NEVER vomit. It takes a lot for my body to give food back. And I was vomiting every half hours all evening. That's on top of the diarrhea.

    And to make it worse, I didn't make it to the toilet in time so I had some clean up to do. I was living alone. Yuck. And no food in the house to eat.

    The second and third time (I think I read somewhere that once you've had it before it's almost easier to get again though I'm not sure if that's true or if I just had a string of "bad luck") were milder. I found what made it easier for me those two times was making sure I was hydrated. Sure, I would still vomit (and your body does need to get rid of the stuff), but it will be less painful and easier to expel if you've some fluids to work with.

    Well, my mom and Greg both ended up with minor versions of what Elnora and I had (and Elnora ended up not near as sick as I was) so I think I might have just had the nastiest case of the flu ever.

    I've had the flu bad enough that I hallucinated before and it didn't even come close to this.

    Nothing like having to sit on the toilet while you hold a bucket to puke in.

    Still fevered today, but my digestive system seems to be returning to normal. Sticking with the BRATY diet. Well...the BATY diet, since I'm not a fan of rice. :)

    And of course I am a little baty...
