In Sickness and In Health

Well D had to go to the ER Thursday evening.

He woke up in the middle of night, suffering from what he thought was his acid reflux and thought he had
forgotten to take his medication. Later that morning he had nausea, upset stomach, stomach pains, and burning in his stomach. He tried taking some pepto bismol, but he couldn't keep that down. He was becoming dehydrated so our doctor asked that I take him to the ER (this is his 2nd visit in 1 year, last June he was admitted to the hospital for severe migraines and some tests were done to rule out an aneurysm). They gave him an IV and through the IV they gave him some nausea medication and sodium chloride to re-hydrate him, they also gave him some liquid called "G.I. cocktail" to help settle his stomach. They took his blood and they noticed he had slightly elevated white blood cells which means he had some sort of infection, which they thought could be Gastroenteritis.

But he's feeling much better now. I started feeling sick to my stomach last night and so we've both been on the BRAT diet, mainly eating toast, bananas, broth and gatorade.

Even Sissy is having some sort of stomach sickness.

What a family! :-)

Oh, I hope you all feel better soon! The BRAT diet sounds like a good way to lose weight quickly! ;)
