This time last week, I was in the midst of a norovirus infection. This nasty little virus gave me the worst 48-72 hours of my life. I lost 8 pounds from Friday to Monday. And then it lingered and my stomach was completely upset (Jello anyone?) for two more days. And then the BRAT (bananas, rice cereal, applesauce, and toast) diet gave me the opposite problem. I’m still constipated and my stomach is all distended and bloated.
I am bloody sick of being sick. We’ll see how milk of magnesia gets things moving tonight. Because I leave very early Wednesday morning (5 am). And nothing is going to stop me from getting to sesshin this time. I so need this and want this.
