I survived (again)…

Ok, so my last post was about how I survived a terrible ordeal. So guess what happens one week after the posting on 3/4/07? You guessed it – it happened again.

My daughter Katie (the youngest) came down with a nasty stomach flu on Friday night. I spent most of the night sitting up with her. She was so bad off that even Kelly felt compelled to come over and spend a few hours comforting her. She couldn’t keep anything down and was throwing up everything we put in her.

Despite constant hand washing, I somehow managed to get the virus. I had a headache by Saturday night and on Sunday morning I felt too poor to go to church. I was amazed by how quickly I went from feeling no-so-good to feeling awful. By noon, I was almost comatose with my heart stopping twice for about 10-15 seconds each. Thank goodness, Rachel was here by 10:00 and called 911 for me. I wasn’t conscious for most of it, but did have the presence of mind to realize I was being loaded into an ambulance and taken to the hospital.

I started feeling like I was in the land of the living by Tuesday morning, but somehow, this bug slapped about 50 IQ points outta me. Now, a full week later, I still feel really dizzy, nauseaus, and plain ol’ stupid. My current condition reminds me of a nasty handover, except that I didn’t have a fun drunk before hand.

Hope you’re doing better than I am…



  1. I forget the channel on TV but they had a FLU map, like a weather map of the country. That was a little freaky to me.

  2. Glad to hear that you’re doing better. All of us over on Chickenshack were pretty worried. Those of us who pray were praying for you.

  3. Glad to hear you are back among the living. 🙂
