Rough Weekend

What a nasty illness this turned out to be. The only good thing I can say is that stomach-wise we were left untouched. I mean, we didn't have much of an appetite, but what we did eat, we kept down.

Elise started running higher numbers on Saturday, but interestingly we never had any issues with ketones. Her fever started around Saturday afternoon, and was as high as 103.3 this evening. But she's acting like nothing is wrong though and wants to run and play as much as she usually does. Weird, Fred and I can barely move and she seems to have more energy!

The hardest part with both of us being sick, was tending to Elise's needs. Just because we didn't feel like eating, didn't get us out of preparing something decent for Elise. And even though we felt awful, we still had to pull ourselves together enough to go grocery shopping to make sure we had food in the house. I remember feeling like I was about to pass out at one point while trying to pick out some eggs.

The good news is that my flu test came back negative... so we still have no idea what this was. I just can't wait to get rid of it!

Sorry if this post seems all over the place, my brain is still really foggy.


  1. So sorry it's been such rough weekend--but so glad that your flu test came back negative! Lots of hugs and prayers!!

  2. Hugs dear and I hope you feel better soon it sucks to be sick like that . I remember I had to attend a wedding one time only to find out 3 days later that we had food poisoning . God bless and hope all is well soon . take care and stay warm and try and eat something .

  3. Yeah...good call on the party!!! That would have been quite a mess!!!!

    I hope you guys feel tip top by next weekend :)
