Sorry I didn't post sooner, but I've been flat on my back all day long with a savage bout of food poisoning. I don't think I've been awake for more than 10 minutes at a time until now (except last night when I tossed and turned until dawn).
I'm eating a bowl of oatmeal in the hope that it will quell some of the acid that's eating up my stomach. Judging by the ominous rumbles my guts are making, my stomach is either saying "thank you" or giving me a dire warning.
I called my doctor's office but they told me what I already knew: this'll just have to run its course. I've had worse; I don't think I'll need to go to the emergency room for IV fluids this time. Still, this isn't how I wanted to spend my Friday and possibly my weekend.
