Catching Up

Warning: the following entry is not comprised of the most appetizing subject.

I realize that my blogging has been lacking the past few days, but I have a good excuse. Thursday morning I woke up not feeling so hot (well, actually I was running a fever so I was hot) and I began throwing up a lot. I have forced myself to eat saltines and drink a lot of Gatorade...I really should take out stock in that company (our fridge is filled with it right now). I have managed to lose about 8 pounds in three days from this wonderful illness. I have thrown up so much that my entire torso is killing me and it is very painful to laugh or sneeze. The couch has pretty much been my home for the past few days. Gabe and I have watched a lot of movies including Cars, Clerks II, Man of the Year, The Departed, Ghost Rider, John Tucker Must Die, a lot of movies on TV, the entire fifth season of Scrubs, and more movies that I can't remember right now. We started watching Over the Hedge, but I couldn't handle it...there was just too much food in the animation. I haven't been out of the apartment or watched the Food Network for about five days now. Every time I see food on TV I throw up, so Rachael Ray has not been part of my viewing pleasure. Actually, I haven't thrown up for a day or so at this point so yesterday evening I tried eating some vegetable soup (my mom suggested chicken noodle, but the thought of meat makes me want to throw up). I kept down about a third of a can. Things are looking up for me. I have even moved off of the couch to type a blog entry. I am feeling better, I am just really sore and tired. I hope that Gabe doesn't catch this...it sucks!
For those of you keeping track the spine came out of my foot on Thursday (the 14th) around 11:20 p.m. The skin was growing over it so I took my thumb nail and decided to peel it back again. I started pressing on the raised area around the spine and it eventually came out with a lot of pus. I cleaned it up and slathered on Neosporin. It is looking great.


I was good with the throwing up.. but then you threw in the pus! Could've done without that! :) Glad you're feeling better!
