Being able to sit on the throne and have a stool that was solid.
It's amazing, when things go real bad, and your health is one of them, it's amazing how the world seems to get oh so much smaller.
Lets go back a few days (Friday), I was in a clinic having an exploded cyst removed (think of a party popper) from the back of my head (outside my skull btw). I was given a double dose of penicillin by the doctor, and sent on my way home. All was grand..
Until Saturday morning when I barfed, and from there I couldn't keep any liquids inside of me, and it even got to the point where I was losing far more liquids than I could take in.
That's when I called the ambulance who after informing me that a side effect of the penicillin is diarrhoea, brought me to the nearest hospital who then attached a saline solution to my arm to replenish my system. After 2 hours I left to go home, as I had another 4 hour wait ahead of me before a doctor would see me (and I'd eaten nothing, and couldn't fall asleep).
Today, has been good. Easter Sunday, driving around Dublin trying to look for an open Pharmacy.
The hunt was successful, and I was able to obtain Imodium (and not Motilium, which I already had, but was largely ineffective).
I found one in Naas, but that was after a big detour as there was a festival in the town. Chocolate was (and still is) the last thing on my mind
So, long story short? I am glad to have my health somewhat back to normal.
I'm still not 100%, as for dinner I had a child's portion of a chicken curry, and even with that I only ate a small amount of rice and very little chicken.
(This is a plus, as yesterday, I couldn't even fathom taking more than one bite of toast.)
