Elliott's looking pretty much fine; the black was just a scab, not necrosis like I'd feared. Another couple of days to be sure and I'll be introducing the two.

...assuming I'm up to it. Sorry for the delay in updating, but I've come down with the worst case of food poisoning I've ever had in my life. It started Friday, people, and I'm still basically useless. As of today I've missed three days of work which means I've also almost certainly lost my job, which I can't find it in myself to be too upset about. On the other hand, I'm well past 'bored, rammy and irritable' and just want to be up and doing...which I manage for about five minutes before passing out again.

I tried to go to work yesterday. What a bad idea. Tim came and picked me up and I napped for three hours to recover.

The last time I have had such a long and hard recovery from something was when I was five and had just had surgery.


...eventually I'll be all right I suppose. I suspect part of this is backlash from the work-hate-stress and poor eating I've been putting myself through. I'm looking for a better job when I'm functional enough, I swear.

*crawls off for another nap*

Hugs, and prayers for a better job.

Remember the BRAT diet--bananas, rice, applesauce, and dry toast. It really helps. Also, Gatorade is easier to keep down than water.

I hope you feel better soon. Good luck with your job search. Prayers and good thoughts will be headed your way.

Oh darling! I'm so sorry to hear you're doing poorly.

On the job front, remember this: closes door, opens window. You have to crawl through that window, and that's not as easy as walking through the door. But I crawled through my window two and a half years ago now after a sudden job loss. You can DO this!

If it's any consolation, your bath salts have been a major help in me getting over my illness. =)

Thanks, all!

Kass, right now the problem is crawling to the damn window...but I'll get there.
