I realize it’s been forever since I updated. I just returned home from a stay at the hospital, some sort of virus… I don’t know. I’ve been sick/gassy/bloated for two weeks and I had diarrhea for 9 days!! I’m still feeling quite ill and my mom is staying with me this week, feeding me burnt toast (helps the gas) and scrambled eggs and whatever else I can tolerate.
Anyway, hospital tests concluded nothing, so I wanted to come home before I caught something there. (Hospitals are a great place to get infections). I’m weak and feel yucky and with all my not eating you’d think I’d have lost 30 pounds this past two weeks, but my body doesn’t work that way, darnit! I’m just trying to keep my fluids up and get my strength back.
Discussions with others have led me to believe this was brought on by my water bottle!! I drink out of this one litre Rubbermaid bottle I have and rarely clean it, just rinse it and refill… so no more of that. I like having a large bottle by me that I don’t have to refill often, but I’m going to have to switch to just a glass or my Sigg or another kind of bottle that I steralize often!
More another day…
