A while later...

I know it's been a long time.... And as you may have guessed, a lot has happened.

Most recently I became so ill that I spent the night in the emergency room on IV fluids trying to get re-hydrated.

I started in with a stomach bug last Wednesday and by Thursday night I thought I was dying. I've never been so sick in my life... I couldn't even keep water down. By 2am Friday I asked my mom to take me to the ER and then I was begging the ER doctor for an IV.

It was my first-ever IV and it was SO needed and SO appreciated. I felt better within 5 minutes, even though my fever persisted until late Saturday night and I'm just beginning to eat solid foods again.

I was supposed to leave Monday to begin a 3 week visit to Victory Ranch Alpacas, my NM friends. I'm hardly in any shape to drive, so my departure has been postponed until this Saturday.

Sunday is my birthday so I WILL be better by this weekend!

I have a lot more to say regarding the big events in my life that have occurred this year, but I'm exhausted!

More to come later.
