Update of sorts

So I know I said I would be back on Sunday with an update. However it turns out when you are sick to your stomach all you want to do is lay in bed and sleep.

We still don't know what happened or what caused it but I woke up Thursday morning feeling dizzy and felt sick to my stomach. So we came out to the living room and I sat in my chair and it didn't take long before I was praying to the porcelain God. We set an appointment with the Dr as I didn't want to take any chances. They took a urine sample from me right off to rule out bladder infection. Nope, came back ok. So then they had me lay on the table and she pressed on parts of my tummy and it was very tender around the appendix location. So she had them draw my blood to make sure my blood cell counts were ok. That came back ok, so since I wasn't running a fever, they basically told me I had a stomach virus and to do a liquid diet with sips of water/sprite and to move on to popsicles if my tummy could handle it. Then on Friday I was to do the B.R.A.T diet. Which I did but was feeling ok that evening so we had a little more food then I should have tried, because I woke up Sat sick again to my stomach. So I contacted the Dr back to see if I needed to come back in. However since I wasn't presenting any new signs except for the low grade fever she just told me to go back to the BRAT diet and see how I was after that.

So she extended my return to work notice. I had Ian go pick it up along with some crackers/sprite/and more popsicles.

I have been feeling better since last night and no more episodes so hopefully that is a good sign. We went for a walk this morning to get back on track for me. It felt amazing out there. However I could definitely tell I was out of my training since last Wed. It was hard to walk the mile. It took about 10 mins longer than we had been doing. I felt very winded as well. Hopefully Wed I will be better but we shall wait and see.

The visit with mama and papa faas went really well. We enjoyed having them here and know they had a good time as well. We had a lot of good laughs and moments on the trip.

Not much else to post on right now. Hopefully the work week goes well and I should be back next Sunday with an update.
