I got up mid-morning after another night of chills and nausea, and I was promptly hit with a miserable headache. Insult to injury, that, but it might be because I was dehydrated. In any case, I had my usual breakfast cereal bar, and it stayed down. A little later I had a yogurt, and that stayed down as well. In the interim, the city snow plow came by and plowed us in in the process of clearing the street. queenmomcat went out to shovel some snow, but she didn't last long, and I can't say I blame her. The stuff that fell yesterday was very wet and heavy, and that makes for difficult shoveling.
I went back to bed a little after noon, and I spent about three hours alternating between sleeping fitfully and tossing and turning with chills and shivers. After I got up again, I though I would try a frozen pizza for a late lunch, but that turned out to be a mistake: I threw it up again shortly after eating. That sent me back to bed for a few more hours.
Towards the late afternoon, I started some laundry so that the day wouldn't be a complete loss. I also had some more yogurt and a few popsicles, all of which stayed down. In the evening, I felt daring enough to try another frozen pizza, and That also remained in my stomach after eating. And now it's getting to be late in the evening, and I'm thinking of going to bed. My laundry isn't quite finished, so I'll be up a little longer. I have to work at the book store tomorrow, so I hope I'm as on the mend as I seem to be.
