Home again

Hello to everyone, and thank you for your prayers. I spent the night in the hospital, losing my lunch over and over, while having nourishment pumped back into my body via IV fluids. I'm now taking a prescription medicine to curb any stomach bleeding, but the doctors seem to think that the bleeding was probably brought on by the "trauma" of vomiting, and did not precede my illness. What caused the violent illness seems to be anyone's guess- ranging anywhere from a nasty virus to the possibility of salmonella food poisoning (which is apparently making rounds on the east coast, now originating with lettuce and/or tomatoes). I appreciate your continued prayers as I find myself at home and on the mend. Thank you again for your prayers on my behalf!

Oh my gosh! I just saw this now. I'm so sorry Laur!! You must've been freaked out. Food poisoning is no picnic...that sounds like the likely culprit. I'm glad you're better! Nothing scarier than vomiting up blood...

Hello Lauren (and Robert)

Glad to hear you're okay. Vomiting is at the top of my list of "Things I Hate To Do Anytime Ever." Vomiting blood will now occupy spot 1A.

Also wanted to say that it was really great to see you guys, even if it was for a short time!
