Feeling a little green

Today has been a restful day...but that wasn't part of the plan. Yesterday, I started feeling a little bit sick and today it's just gotten worse. UGH!

This morning, we walked to the clinic for them to check Emma's arm where she had the TB test...all looked good. After that, we were supposed to go to the market and the Pearl Market, but I just wasn't feeling up to it, so Emma and I have layed around the room all day. She is so good to play on her own and I was able to rest with one eye open. We both took a nap at her regular nap time.

This evening, I asked Dave and Susan to take her with them to dinner. I can barely hold my eyes open. I am feeling weak, achy and am running a low grade fever. I started antibiotics last night which are broad spectrum and take care of tummy issues as well as everything else. I am hopeful that I will be back to myself tomorrow. Tomorrow is a free day - so if I am still feeling yucky, I have more time to recoup!

Emma was none too happy that I was not going with her, but I know being out and about will do her a world of good. And the rest will do wonders for me!

Please pray that I will get better quickly and that Emma will stay healthy!

Praying. I'm glad you had someone who could take Emma for you.

I'm SO sorry. I know how awful that is. So glad you were able to have Emma get out for a bit and rest with both eyes closed. The meds should kick in soon!

Oh bummer. Unfortunately though, it pretty much wouldnt be a trip to China without some sort of stomach bug. Few escape it. Hope you are up and about and feeling great soon.
