Bug, Bug, go away

Wednesday, January 23, 2008

It all started Thursday, Brennan my son-in-law got a stomach virus. You know the one, vomiting, diahrea, headache, etc. He was very sick, so I made him go to the dr because I was scared to death the baby would catch it. He went and found out it was highly contagious. I ended up packing up the baby and ALL of his gear and heading to my sisters to get away from the bug. Friday, Chelsea started with the headache, she was able to fight off the full blown virus until Sunday morning and her body finally gave up the fight. She bounced back pretty quick and was fine by Monday afternoon. Monday morning Davy got up for work and right before he was ready to walk out the door, he was attacked full force. So back to bed for 2 days. I've always know guys are whinny when they don't feel good, but it took both of them two to two and a half days to really start feeling better. Even though I had a good time at my sisters for the weekend, Hayden was still exposed to the bug. I just kept washing my hands with germ-x and using lysol on everything, doorknobs, cabinet doors, bathroom (everytime it was used), and knock on wood Hayden and I are still feeling good and haven't caught the bug. Hopefully the nasty bug has moved on to some other location. If it comes to your house, I really feel for you.

Now, onto a different subject. As you all know I've been eating alot of vegetable soup and I love it. But since I started eating it, I've noticed a pain in my upper left abdomen area. It started as a little stitch and then turned into more of a stabbing pain. This weekend while at Bumpey's house we made a big pot of vegetable soup and almost immediately after eating it, the pain was so bad I could barely breath. It would eventually lighten up but it has never completely gone away, even now when I take a deep breath it hurts. Also, I've noticed it really doesn't matter what I eat or how much it hurts really bad. So, I haven't been eating much.

Sunday, I ate an english muffin, poached egg and laughing cow cheese for breakfast. And that was all. I think part of it was I was just so afraid of the pain coming back and then if I were to catch the bug I didn't want much on my stomach.

Monday, I stayed home with the baby because Chelsea still wasn't feeling good, and I ate a biscuit with sugar free jelly for breakfast,
lunch was a pb&j on light wheat bread, nothing for dinner.

Tuesday, no breakfast (I woke up with the pain and just didn't want to irritate it anymore), Lunch was a grilled chicken breast with lettuce and tomato, dinner was 1 cup of spaghetti and 1/2 cup meat sauce.

Today, I woke up with the pain again. I guess I'm going to have to make a dr's appt. I looked it up on the internet and upper left adbominal pain is a little unusual. It doesn't feel like an ulcer, more like a stabbing sharp pain when I eat and just a dull annoying stitch during the day. I'll see if I can get in today or tomorrow and let you know what he says.
