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.
