More Test Results

Beth has been sick for over a week now. She won the gold medal a week and 1/2 ago and that Monday was her day off so she stayed home and did chores. When she woke up on Tuesday she told me she didn't feel good and that she had a headache.

I gave her some ibuprofin for the headache but the diarrhea stayed for a while. Day after day in fact.

We took her to the doctor and everything was normal. Her BP was good, her oxygen was normal, she didn't have a temperature so the doctor decided to order some urine, stool and blood samples and we came home to wait.

They called today and Beth has food poisoning! It takes between 7-10 days to run it's course and she's been getting better. She can start eating regularly again and she's definitely happy about that. By the way, we've thrown out the frozen food she ate the night before she got sick!

We're planning to have her go back to work this weekend and she's ready! It's been 8 days since she left the house! It has not been fun for her.
