A Hospital Visit but Not for the Reason You Think

I was supposed to have my MRI today but yesterday my husband came home throwing his guts up. I wasnt to concerned about getting it because I had it 1st and then my son, daugher and husdand followed. I thought I had my turn with this nasty bug but it wanted more from me. Yesterday at 4pm I started vomiting and nothing in this world was able to make me stop. At around 10 pm my Mom arrived to take me to the emergency room because at this point I had no strength to even walk. Everything hurt and I felt like I was going to die. When I arrived at the hospital I waited for about 25 minutes and then they put me in a room and started and IV immediately. They ran bloods and a urine just to make sure everything was OK and it was just a virus. They also gave me all my meds IV because I wasnt able to take them due to the vomiting. I fell asleep and so did my Mom in the chair next to the bed and when I woke up at 2:30am they were hooking my 2nd liter of fluids up. They said that after I got them I can go home. At that point my whole body hurt from the nasty stretchers they have you lay in and I asked for more pain meds. After I got them I went back to sleep until 5am and went home at 5:30am. I was so happy to get back in my bed at 6am and have been resting all day. Its just 3pm and I had some saltine crackers with gatorade and ginger ale. I am holding them down and feeling a little better. I wasnt able to have my MRI today but had it rescheduled for tomorrow afternoon. I was worried that I wouldnt be able to get it rescheduled and I HAD to have it done before I went to see the surgeon on Tuesday. Now all I have to do is feel well enough to drive to the hospital tomorrow.
PS You know I am sick when I cant even think about knitting or anything to do with knitting. Now that I am feeling better I think I can start knitting again!
