Mother Nature sure has a way about her to slow you down. I went to my son's for Christmas and we had such a nice time. Saturday morning at 1 am I started in with many, many bathroom trips. I thought it was probably from eating things I don't normally eat. I became so dehydrated I called my girlfriend at 5 am and she took me to the ER. They started a glucose drip for me and I had several tests and a CAT scan of the stomach. I had a lot of irration but nothing serious. They said just stay on the BRAT diet and it was most likely the 24 virus going around. They had seen a lot of it. I took it easy on Sunday and just watched football and ate lightly. The Brat diet doesn't really contain food. Monday I didn't really feel that well and was still pretty weak from not eating much. Monday night I began vomiting. Seems I had gone through both types of the virus. Some had the bathroom visits and some vomited. I was lucky enough to do both. I slept a lot each day, then slept all night except for little visits. So I have done nothing for four days, literally. Today I've had banannas, chicken noodle soup, applesauce and jello along with Sprite. It was a feast. I hope it is not going around where you are. One more Christmas card. Then I want to share the beautiful cards I've received in the mail. They are all the most beautiful cards I've ever seen. Be kind to one another.

  5. Bless your heart...what a way to end Christmas! I hope you are feeling a bit better today, so taking it easy, resting, sleeping, is just the thing you should be doing. So glad you had a friend close by to help out. The card is beautiful...and love the way you've done the design placement, and ditto the colors. Big hugs, and hopefully, once you get past this virus bug, the New Year will be a little better than the past couple of months. TFS

  7. So sorry to hear you've been unwell. It certainly sounds like a very nasty virus! Hope you're beginning to feel a lot better now. Thank you as well for the lovely Christmas card which arrived this morning. I certainly didn't expect you to send one with all that's been going on in your life, as you've had more than enough to cope with. Here's hoping 2016 will be a better year for you and your family. Hugs xx
