Still Feeling Rotten

It is 1:30 in the morning and I don't dare go to bed because every 20 minutes or so I need to run to the bathroom. I am low on energy - tomorrow I am going to go buy a whole bunch of gatorade to help restore the electrolytes...and Monday I am going to call the doctor for another appointment - there is no way I can wait until the 23rd (when they are doing my colonoscopy) to find out what else we can try to help stop this infernal diarrhea. The antifungal drug that I was prescribed for the Candida helped really well for one week - and since then has been coming back worse every day - Wednesday and Thursdays were my worst days so far. Today I felt pretty good - but tonight things are not good.

I will only eat toast and drink lots of liquids tomorrow so that I will be in good shape to go to Provo on Monday - I very much want to go see Emma and Ben and I have to make sure I can do it....I have also decided I am going to halt my walks in the mornings - I have only been walking one and one half miles instead of the normal 2 1/2 miles and that still leaves me in awful shape for the rest of the day. I am going to see if I don't wear myself out first thing in the morning if I will have more energy for the rest of the day.

this is probably too much information (or TMI as Jamie would say) but I wanted to give you all an update as to what is going on STILL!

I am so sorry. The drug seems to have worked for me. So I guess it was giardia in my case. I have no idea from where. I hope they can figure what is going on soon. How frustrating!

Poor Mommy :( I'm sorry you are going through this yuckiness still. I am praying they can figure out what is wrong and get you fixed up and back to normal super fast.

You poor thing. Maybe you should drag some blankets and pillows to the bathroom and sleep there. I thinkit is a good idea to postpone your morning walks until you feel better. And to keep calling your doctor every few days if you are feeling icky.

I'm sorry you're still feeling icky. I hope you can feel better soon, because it is no fun to be sick for so long. :(
