Health Update

Well, I went to the doctor and got my diagnosis. I apparently have gastro-enteritis. Supposedly there is a nasty case of it going around, and it generally lasts three to four days. Mine started Monday afternoon. I have been instructed to stay home from work tomorrow as well, partially for my benefit and partially to avoid an office epidemic. I also have been instructed to drink lots of fluids, get lots of rest, and eat whatever will stay down.

I stopped at two supermarkets on my way home and picked up all sorts of stuff: apple juice, V-8 juice (I haven't discovered yet if I can actually drink the stuff rather than just cook with it, but life is full of learning experiences), and some nukeable stuff. Oh, and canned peaches.

I then stopped to pick up some take out "sushi" for some dinner. Yes, only I have sushi when I have stomach problems. Of course, the sushi was crab, egg, and a shrimp and cucumber roll (read: all cooked) and I figured the rice would be useful to my system, but still, only I would get sushi to deal with gastro-enteritis.

I hate being sick, but it could be worse. I don't have a fever, I don't ache, and I'm not itchy. Of course, if I was any more green I would be Kermit the Frog, but, ah well.

Anyone who has my phone number is more than welcome to use it. There is only so much daytime TV a person can watch before one's brains start to leak out one's ear and scurry away in fear.
