Welcome to the spring gastro club

said the cheery nurse as she hooked me up to the drip! Yep, I've been sick, which is my excuse for not posting, not reading anyone else's posts, not doing anything at all actually, except feeling very sorry for myself. After several awful days which don't need description, I had lost so much weight (only fluid of course, nothing useful), my son took me to the local hospital for a day on the drip. What a difference that made to my spirits - I wasn't cured but it gave me the strength to start getting better.

So far today I seem to be way better than yesterday so that has to be a good thing. I don't have the energy to spend more than a few minutes at the computer but I'm making the most of my lying-down-time by designing what will be my Secret Garden.

The real down side has been staying away from the little kids though S has been coming to give me very serious looks (from a safe distance) each time her Dad comes to visit, and she always asks how I am feeling and hopes I'll be well soon. I hope so too because it's spring, the weather is fabulous ( the family were in the pool while I was in hospital!) and there is SO MUCH TO DO.

  4. one more time, get well!! at least we have all been sick too so 1) we know we didn't infect one another 2) we are probably not going to give it to one another now.

  9. That can't have been nice. I've never been on a drip but I've often been one :) Sending very best wishes for you to be one hundred percent very soon and out enjoying the southern Spring.

  11. Thanks to everyone - I'm better but it seemed like I was quite manic for the first few days, waking and starting my day at 5am, gardening til I dropped, asleep by 7pm. Then a couple of days when I was still driven, but felt totally exhausted all the time. I think I'm back to normal now though still getting an early start because it seems really wrong to miss out on the wonderful spring mornings.
