Holidays started good then.....end up in hospital

Got the BAD stomach virus on Christmas day.   Ended up in the hospital for 3 days, dehydration, fever, body pain and vomiting.   We were in Wisconsin and live in Michigan, we left on the 26th, we pulled off the interstate in Coldwater (about 20 minutes from home) and I told my husband drop me off at the ER at Coldwater Hospital.

 

I hope no one gets that virus, it is a nasty one.    Stay healthy all!

@momtogodgs we are in Jonesville, just north of Hillsdale.   Coldwater Hospital is NICE!   They took good care of me.   Still not right, weak and dizzy, but coming along.

Oh no! That stomach virus is horrible. I fear getting it every winter. I did get it last January but it only lasted 24 hours, not nearly as bad as I've had it previously lasting for days.

 

Get well! Glad you're on the mend!

@LoriMI    I hope you are feeling better.  Stomach flu is horrible.  I was in bed on Christmas with Bronchitis and a flare up from COPD.  I ended up in Immediate Care on Christmas Eve.  I was told that a lot of people had the flu.  Immediate Care had 92 patients in an 8 hr. day on the 23rd.  That is over 10 patients per hour.
