After battling whatever bug that was I had yesterday, I'm feeling quite a bit better. Not perfect. But better.

It was a nasty bug, and it had me debilitated as soon as I got out of the shower yesterday morning. I slept for the majority of the day, not eating or drinking anything including Maalox (it was no use, as it would just be given as an homage to the porcelain god five minutes later) and watching horrible daytime television. I have to give it to you stay-at-home moms, they don't give you much to watch during the day.

I have no idea what it was. I thought maybe some bad Chinese food, but everything I had eaten that day was shared with the cop, and he didn't get sick so... although the symptoms, from past experience, all pointed to food poisoning. And then I thought, "OMIGOSH, I'm preg... oh wait... nevermind," as there has to be a certain progression of events for that to occur.

But it's over now, and I'm back at work. And back to blogging.

Note to Self: Oh, and the cop has returned to work - desk duty, which he hates. He is healing much faster than expected and should be back to walking within a month, at which time I will become a rehab nazi - Gelaufen, polizeibeamte, gelaufen!

oh god, isn't Maalox the worst drink ever?

Tastes like chalk. Or thats what I imagine chalk to taste like anyway.

Glad you survived the evil bug. It stinks being sick but it's even worse in the summer.

im sorry you were sick, but its still possibly food poisioning.

Since my Cop strated working nights, hes beein eating all sorts of crappy food(whatever is open at 4am cannot be fresh)
and therefore can stomach almost ANYTHING.

Im glad you are feeling the better :)

I'm glad to hear you're feeling better and that the cop is back on duty, even if said duty sucks.
