Lost sleep in ER

I'm really tired. Hard to believe there used to be a time staying up until 2 a.m. would not have bothered me, but not anymore. Age is such a funny thing.

Steven ended up in ER last night because of severe diarrhea. We are guessing a flu bug. He was given 3 bags of fluids and some meds to settle his stomach cramping. We got home about 4 a.m. I'm not used to just a few hours of sleep. Thank God for a mom willing to go to the drug store and get new prescriptions. I'm thinking it's all cold outside like it is inside. What a surprise.

So we will ease back into bland foods today and see how he does. I'm trying not to breathe the air but it's not working.

Update, the bland food did not help and he is camped out in the bathroom again. This flu is hard on a moderately healthy person, but Steve is not healthy. He is wiped out and discouraged.

  1. Sorry to hear that Steve is fighting the flu as well as fighting cancer. That sucks. I just wanted you to know that lots in my family have had the flu and it is a bad one. Headaches, nausia, diarrhea. Will be praying that the flu is gone soon and will continue to pray for the miracle of cancer free. My sister Carrie has tests scheduled for today for severe stomach cramping. I am praying that it is just her doing too much like it was last time. Love you Denise and love reading your blog.
