I don't think it was actually the flu. Although I had the vaccine this year, and I guess it could have been a mild case. I woke up in the middle of the night Sunday night with horrible nausea and stomach cramps. And then a headache and body aches. And I stayed in bed all day yesterday. All I had to eat was graham crackers and a soft pretzel. That's how sick I was.
Today? Just fine. I woke up at 8:30 (granted, later than I usually would) and I felt fine. I spent the day visiting with my parents, who have finally arrived from Florida in their RV. I have eaten the normal things I would eat on any given day and it has caused no further distress.
But I did lose a whole day.
I also got to see what my family would eat if I were not around to cook for them. Shudder.
