SICK AGAIN!!

Yep, I'm sick again. I am trying not to cry while writing this but it's hard. I am so sick of being sick. I know that once I see Jacob this will all be worth it but my body is so tired and I haven't even gotten to labor yet.
I woke up around 3 am with a horrible stomach ache. It was almost exactly like my stomach ache this summer while at the cabin if any of you remember that story. Oh course by 7 am I was in tears because I hadn't slept and I really can't miss work. B did everything he could. He tried rubbing my tummy and getting me whatever I needed but it just proceeded to get worse. I knew that the way I felt and the lack of sleep would prevent me from going into work.
There is nothing that I can do about that. I just wish that I didn't have to work through all of this and that I could just relax. I fell asleep around 7:30 am but was woken up because I needed to run to the bathroom and throw up. Sorry for the details. I can't keep anything down and my tummy just aches.
I called the nurse line and she said its the flu, she is so certain and I hope that's all it is. I told her that I got the flu shot and she said that only prevents respiratory problems and not the stomach problems and vomiting. Did any of you know that? What was the point of getting the shot.....
Tomorrow morning B and I were suppose to head up to Duluth. I called the hotel and they said that we can't cancel. I pray pray pray to god that I feel better in the morning so we aren't out all that money and so B can have a good B-Day.

Well enough of my sob story. I hope everyone else is better than I am.

Take care.

Stomach flu is awful and YES it is a completely different virus than the respiratory one that you get shots for. I hope you're feeling better today and still made it to Duluth
