In Sickness and in Health I Will Trust My God


I hope you all don’t get this nasty gastrointestinal bug that is going around the northwest.  My husband had it and now I have it.

It starts out with two days of restless sleep, and then one gets a nasty case of heartburn that goes on for hours.  One’s skin feels clammy and prickly; and it is very hard to regulate temperature.

I literally felt like I had been punched in the stomach multiple times.  I have never been punched in the stomach but assumed that is what it must feel like.  When my husband first had it I worried because those are also heart attack symptoms.

Then it hits your gut hard.  With my husband it was impossible to stay away from a toilet for very long.

I lucked out, for me it’s both vomiting and the runs.

Just the slightest sip of water makes one have to run for the bathroom.   I have not had anything to eat today but half a saltine cracker, about six ounces of Gatorade, and sips of water here and there.  The crazy thing is that I actually feel hungry.   It was that way for my husband too.

It’s not a horrible illness, just one of life’s inconveniences, but  I am very happy that God watches over me just the same.

So, this is my post today.  Sorry it’s not more uplifting.  I hope you all stay safe and healthy.

  1. Feel better soon, friend. Sounds a lot like something I had earlier this winter. 😦 Sorry.

  2. By the stripes of Jesus you are healed. No more passing this on to others. May you awaken feeling good.
