Getting Worse

Things have been getting worse with my sickies. I'm on antibiotics and I really hope that they kick in soon. I now not only have a bronchial infection, but I also have a sinus infection. My throat is killing me, there's crap in my lungs, my sinuses are in pain, I'm nauseous, I'm dizzy, I'm weak, I'm off balance, and I'm running a fever. Last night things got much worse and while I was going to the bathroom I got very sick while coughing. I ended up vomiting in my Mom's bathtub. Luckily, there's a big drain in there and she was able to wash it down. I don't remember much else from last night except for the fact that I slept with a sheet, a down comforter, a quilt, and two fleece blankets over me and was still shivering. I also can't stop peeing. I'm having to pee majorly about every half hour or so. My Mom says that my body is going into something called ketosis because I'm not eating much of anything.

Today I slept in. A lot. I'm sick as hell and needed the sleep. Rob went to the store with my Mom to pick up stuff for dinner tonight. He also did a bit of driving on the way there. My Mom's trying to teach him how to drive a bit while we're out here. When he got back he helped me shower and my Mom worked on dinner.

Dinner was the works. Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, rolls, green bean casserole, some sort of berry fluff, and pie (apple and pumpkin). Unfortunately, I couldn't eat any of it. I'm incredibly nauseous and didn't think I could hold down any type of food at all. I did sit at the table with my Mom, Nana, and Rob for the company, but I wasn't able to eat anything. Later tonight I might try some chicken broth, but right now I'm not even sure I can hold that down. I don't know if the nausea is part of my sickies or if it's because of the antibiotics. Either way it sucks.

After dinner the four of us hopped into the car and headed to see a lit up drive through park in Dubuque. It was fun seeing all of the various Xmas lights and decorations, but not so fun when every place is closed and I have to pee every half hour. Luckily, we found *one* open gas station on the way home from Dubuque.

Now we're watching TV and I'm doing some stuff on the computer. I don't want to be on too much longer because I'm not feeling good so I think it's time to wrap this up.
