Saturday night we had planned a big night out… us and two other couples for dinner (a triple-date!). Both our parents were visiting for the weekend, so Avery was all set with doting grandmothers as babysitters for the night. We hadn’t been out on a date since last month’s Asian-Style Date Night, which was over a month ago – so we were super-excited to have an adult’s night out!
We went to a local Italian Restaurant and started with drinks and ordered some hearty dishes. By the time the food came, I was feeling sick and excused myself. I was hit hard with nausea and got sick in the bathroom. Everyone got me home quickly and within 3 minutes of being home, I was sick again. This proceeded until 3am in the morning. I don’t remember the last time I was that sick. The following day, I was weak and my muscles ached and I didn’t want to look or smell any food.
I have no idea where the bug came from but I was lucky that our family was visiting so I could rest while they tended to Avery. I was on the couch all day Sunday, and kept my distance from Avery because I didn’t want him to get sick! I took Monday off from work and Avery went to daycare so I could rest up and try to gain my energy back. I’m back to work again this morning, but don’t have much food in my system. Saltine crackers are my best friend right now.
I’m super-bummed our date night was cut short, but thankful that our family was here to help out, and nobody else got sick. Hopefully I’ll be back to 100% soon, and I’ll be blogging about more appealing things…
Oh and a side note, this totally messed up my FIT in 40 schedule. Once I’m able to eat and exercise again, I’ll keep logging away!
