Ugh, gastritis strikes again !! It was a very long night of severe nausea, stomach/intestinal pain/cramps, and diarrhea...lost 8lbs in 8hrs . Zofran is helping with the nausea today and thankfully the cramping/pain has stopped, but I'm still having diarrhea every time I drink anything. I just tried eating...having nausea and mild burning pain, but at least it has stayed in so far.
I was planning on getting the rest of the painting done today, but I'm too weak and tired to do it . My kids are doing as much of it as they can...super grateful for their willingness to help . I'm sure there will be drips and it won't look as crisp as if I had done it myself, but they're learning, ha, and just maybe this is God telling me to let go of my control-freakish and perfectionistic ways and accept help from others .
I was worried all the diarrhea/cramping was going to put me into labor (seriously the worst cramps I have ever had) and I did have quite a few obvious contrx, but everything seems calm today . I'm frustrated for sure, but praying for a good night and a productive day tomorrow...focusing on rest and hydration today .
