I've taken up residence on my couch, y'all. Since Saturday afternoon I've been dealing with stomachache, headache, backache, achy legs and oh yes, evil things being expelled with great force from my body.

The doc says no dairy for three weeks, and starting today I can only have pedialite, gatorade and ginger ale. Tomorrow, if the expellation of bad things has ended I can move on to rice water (boil the rice, drink the water - fun!), then maybe clear broth and so on.

As I lay here this afternoon bitching about life in general (the Beast was home for lunch) I mentioned that the worst thing about the whole thing was going to be coffee in the morning. I love my half-and-half.

Beast: We'll have to find you a non-dairy creamer.

Me: That sounds like death.

Beast: Maybe some soy creamer?

Me: That sounds worse than death.

One good thing: since this morning, there have been no violent expellations and the achy feelings have eased a little bit.
