Poison...and I ain't talking about the band!!
Why I love some Bret Michaels and would much rather be blogging on Poison going on tour this summer...and the classics such as Every Rose Has its Thorn and the infamous Unskinny Bop (I have you wanting to dig out those CDs now, don't I?) That is NOT what the last 36 hours held for me.
I went out to eat at The Cheescake Factory on Wednesday Evening, returned home around 10:00 and by 1230 AM....my stomach was in much turmoil. Yes friends, food poisoning. I can't remember ever having food poisoning, and let me tell you, it is NOT fun. I stayed in bed all day and was not able to go to J&A's to work, and could not even keep water/gatorade down to hydrate myself. Amber T. came to check on me earlier in the day and then at 7, Sam came over to see how I was doing. I could barely even walk to the bathroom at this point because my legs were cramping so bad. Yes...it was time to go to the ER.
We arrived at the ER and my blood pressure was not in a good place and I was in pain as the cramping had now moved up my back. Yuck. I received some nausea medicine and an IV and by 1230 AM I was on my way back home after a very long day of discomfort.
Thankfully, when I awoke this morning I was much better. MUCH better. I was able to make my way to The Lance Armstrong Foundation to fill out paperwork and get my benefits package and now I am sitting in a coffee shop.
I will take it easy today but I really hope I can ride the bike tomorrow. Cause I need to get in the MILES this weekend.
I am going to try and swim this afternoon....
Food Poisoning=No Fun.
