A Good Day:

I used to define a Good Day as any day one is not having an episiotomy.

I now define a Good Day as any day that does not require a trip to the hospital for IV rehydration.

I think this simplifies things a lot.

The strain of stomach flu going around here is so nasty that it made the news. I can verify that, in fact, after contracting this one would have to get better in order to die. I picked it up Saturday and I have just successfully completed my first meal of solid food since then. A piece of toast and some cottage cheese. The thought of that even frightened me, but hunger won out.

Needless to say, my eye surgery has been put off until later in the year.

The only bright spot is that the five pounds I put on over the holiday? Gone! Plus another five. If I don't die, I might make target weight by the end of the month. ;)

I'm going back to sleep now.
