I'm back at the office today after taking a couple days of sick leave. Kitty came down with some sort of stomach ailment on Monday and stayed home from work for a few days. On Wed I wasn't feeling all that great when I woke up, but decided to try to head into work. Just before heading out the door I called Rolf on the porcelain phone and decided that was my cue that I was officially sick. Back into bed I went. I started getting concerned when it seemed that for every cup of water I put into my body, 3 or 4 would quickly come out the other end. I tried sipping Gatorade to keep up my electrolytes, but it seemed like a losing battle. Slowly but surely I was able to get more and more fluids to stay in my body. By Thursday I was onto oatmeal and chicken soup. I'm still not 100%. My stomach is still dancing all around my gut at the moment, but I can function. Just by chance I heard on the news yesterday that rotavirus was currently rampant in the state. That would explain a lot.
