Tennessee Trip Day 3 + 3 + 3 = 9

I have the flu.
Mother fudger.

I woke up this morning very early, and my chiggers on my feet were itching to the point of keeping me awake.
I tried to just stay awake, since sleeping wasn't an option.
I walked down to the continental breakfast and got a fruit cup and a bowl for my Special K.
I was so tired, and my guts were really sore.
I went back to the room, ate my fruit cup, and then laid back down.

I went to sleep, woke up again, and my guts were killing me.
I did my business, but I realized that I couldn't stay awake while I was sitting there.
I had to keep going back and forth between the toilet and sleepy-town.

Eventually after I woke up again, I realized something wasn't right.
My throat was so sore that it hurt to swallow. (still does).
My joints were so stiff that any small movement caused a lot of pain.
Even though I had turned off the air conditioner, I was freezing.
The coldness made my joints hurt even more.
But I was also burning up.

My mom was at my grandparent's house, so I called her and told her I felt sick.
She came back and gave me Dayquil, a pain killer, and a Gas-x.
I'm feeling a little better right now, but I know when those start wearing off I'll be back in pain.
Perfect thing to happen the day before we leave for Vegas, right?

You look beautiful for not feeling well!

I love that your mom came back and gave you meds. I load up on whatever I can when I'm sick, Sean turns his nose up at meds all together (ironic considering he works in a hospital right?). Feel better!

Aww I am sorry Lee!! For the itch go to a pharmacy store or Walmart and pick uf After-Bite, it works good, it can sting if you have scratched but it helps to lessen the itchiness!!

That sucks really bad. Hopefully it is just a 24-hr bug and goes away before you go back home!
