Has anyone seen my spleen? It was just here a minute ago.

Food poisoning. Ever had it? No? Would you like some? Here, you can have mine.

Please, take it. I'm begging.

I am assuming that this sickness is food poisoning, though I can't think of where I might have gotten it. Do you think you can get food poisoning from Boston Creme Pie? Just those words are making me green so I'm going to say yes, it is possible. And probable.

I spent the better part of last night lying in some sort of prone position on my bathroom floor. When I wasn't resting my chin on the bowl, that is. It got so bad last night that I stopped running back and forth from bedroom to bathroom and instead had Mr. C help me make a make shift bed on the cold tile floor. And let me tell you, I'm too old and my back is too bad to be lying on a bathroom floor like I'm some college kid coming off a bender.

But what choice did I have? After retching my guts up I had little energy to walk the six steps back to bed. I think I may have thrown up my pancreas. Or maybe it was my spleen. I don't know, it was dark and I was woozy.

Mr. C graciously (read: he had no choice) took the day off from work to watch Chicky so I can try to catch up on some sleep and attempt to keep my lower intestines from falling out. I hear cartoons playing. Tomorrow I'll have to explain to her why she can't watch Noggin while eating gold fish crackers all day.

On a bright note some lovely ladies saw fit to nominate two of my posts for Perfect Post awards. Domestic Chicky nominated "Dear Friend" and JayJenny and Paula from Rock the Cradle nominated "2004". Ladies, I am touched and honored. And more than a little overwhelmed. But in a good way. This is the best I've felt in at least 16 hours. Probably longer.

Now I need to shut my eyes for awhile. Who knew typing while in lying in bed could be so exhausting?

What an AWFUL night!

Get some rest, make Mr. C take care of you and we'll see you back when you're better!

Kelly said...

After going through this back in December, believe me, you have my utmost sympathy.

(Perhaps it's that dreaded norovirus though, making the rounds and wreaking its nasty havoc.)

Wishing you a speedy recovery and some much-needed rest.

Kate said...

There's nothing worse than praying to the porcelain goddess when you don't even have a great night out to show for it.

Congrats on the perfect post! Hope you feel better soon.

ali said...

you poor, poor thing.

i don't even know what to say. that sucks all kinds of hairy balls and such.

i hope you're feeling better!

Redneck Mommy said...

So I guess now would not be a good time to tell you I like to read my blogs while enjoying my breaky...a runny omlette, greasy bacon and toast with rasp. jam.

Although after reading this post, I am decidedly not hungry anymore.

Must be sympathy queasiness.

I'm sending good thoughts your way, Mrs. Chicky. And hugs. Lots of hugs.

Now I have to go. Nothing worse than cold runny eggs...

Blog Antagonist said...

Oh you poor thing! I had the food poisoning when I was 8 mos pg with Diminutive One, and I've never been so sick in my whole life. I ended up in the hosptial with pre-term labor brought on by sever dehydration. Yech.
Needless to say, you have my most heartfelt sympathy.

I hope you're feeling better today.

And congrats on your nominations! Very well deserved.

MotherBumper said...

Congrats on the nominations and Boo on the food poisoning. I really hope you feel better soon.

andi said...

Congrats on the perfect post nomination. Too bad it doesn't make up for what sounds like a very gruesome night.

Avalon said...

Oh Mrs. C~~ Here's to a fast recovery and a quick detox from Boston Creme Pie. We used to see food poisoning patients in the ER.....a lot. They were truly sick as dogs. My sympathies.

jen said...

ah...sister. feel better. i came back from El Salvador w/ a bug. I've decided it's a parasite, and i've even named him Oscar - seeing as he's been here a week and helped me lose four pounds. in fact, i might keep him for a while longer.

feel better. and those posts, well...i loved them and it's very well deserved.

radioactive girl said...

I hope you feel better quick!

Congratulations on the perfect posts!

Beck said...

I had food poisoning so terribly once that I ended up with a horrible side effect from throwing up that I won't go into except to mention that it involved my nose because I was throwing up with such fervour that my poor innocent bystander of a nose became involved. I don't recommend that.
Get better!

Kristi said...

Get better soon. I've never had the food poisoning. I hear it sucks. So...uhhh...yeah...sucks to be you.

Sleep it off, girl. Enjoy your time in bed while you can get it.

Dirty Birdie said...

Uh food poisoning sucks. I got it pretty bad back in Colorado, I too slept next to the toilet.

Hope you feel better soon.

Irreverent Antisocial Intellectual said...

Food poisoning ... tuna sub from Subway, 2000. I still vividly remember the makeshift bed on the bathroom floor.

Be sure to hydrate today - I hear you need lots of water to regenerate a spleen and pancreas.

sweatpantsmom said...

Sounds like food poisoning to me. I've only had it once, and it was from my own cooking. Come over for dinner sometime, won't you?

Congrats on the Perfect Post award!

Damselfly said...

Oh, geez. I hope you feel better. Food poisoning sucks. Mr. C sounds more dreamy all the time -- although my husband's idea of watching our baby involves TV, too, oh well.

Rest and liquids!

Isabel said...

I had food poisining ONCE. And it was enough. Hope you feel better soon!

ewe are here said...

Izzy said...

Oh, I feel your pain. I spent last Saturday night making out with my toilet and it was pure misery. I hope whatever you have is over and that you're on the mend :)

mamatulip said...

Oh god, girl, that sounds just wretched. I hope you're feeling much better today.

Congrats on your PP's; they are much deserved.

metro mama said...

Food poisoning is the worst. Sean and I both got it on our honeymoon.

Hope you're better soon!

Velma said...

Oh, man! I really hope you are feeling better by the time you read this!

Fairly Odd Mother said...

Oh! You poor thing! And Congrats on the perfect posts! You deserve it.

Mrs. Chicken said...

Food poisoning is AWFUL. I'm so sorry!

And those two posts were totally outstanding. I am behind on my commenting because my freelance work is massive right now, but your post about your mom made me cry. It was dreadfully familair.

I wish we lived nearby. I'll be on the Cape for a month this summer - let's definitely have that drink, OK?

Two Sisters said...

Feel better!

kgirl said...

ack, hope you and your spleen are feeling better soon.
congrats on the pp - well deserved.

Mad Hatter said...

Kudos on the PPs. 2004 moved me deeply.

something blue said...

I have food poisoning twice. Don't eat seafood in Texas.

I thought I was suffering another bout of it this week but then I discovered there is a stomach virus that is going around. It truly sucks.

Congrats on your perfect posts! I've been thinking about you.

Jill said...

Been there done that. Hugs.

dodo said...

you have my sympathies. I got salmonella three weeks ago and my guts still aren't quite right. Be brave!

dodo said...

but, on the upside - my jeans are falling off!

Slackermommy said...

That sucks! Look at the bright side, you'll lose a few pounds.

Mamacita Tina said...

Hope your feeling better! Hope it's not some stomach bug that goes through your household, ugh. Get well!
