OH MY GOODNESS!! I am so thankful to be typing this right now, thankful that I FEEL like typing this. I have been SOOOO sick! For those of you that don't know, I got "the stomach bug" we had been dreading, Sun. the 4th. I spent our last day in OK sick, then rode back 13+ hours SICK! It was not pretty. We were afraid if we waited to leave, Brent would get it and we'd be stuck. So anyway, I just kept thinking, a couple days with the bug, then I should be fine. Then everyday, I'd think surely tomorrow I'll be better. WELL........12 days later, I can finally say, I think I'm better. I have never seen a GI virus stick around so long. It was 9 days with the full fledged bug, then the last two days I think I was just trying to recover. I ended up in the ER last Thursday night with dehydration and hypokalemia (low potassium), and I've lost about 10 pounds. I hadn't unpacked or done much of anything until today. I feel like I've just lost a week and a half of my summer- I basically have. Thankfully, Brent and Hollace have managed to avoid the bug so far. (Say a little prayer and knock on wood). I still don't feel GREAT, but SOOO much better. It will probably take awhile for me to feel like myself after that one!
Well enough of my sob-story, just wanted to let everyone know I'm still alive and I'll try to get some pictures of our trip and the 4th up soon. Sorry I don't have any pictures of myself over the last 2 weeks for your enjoyment!
