Last night I got sick!Â I woke up with burping/indigestion, then diahrea, and then I threw up.Â The diahrea continued until mid morning.Â Since then, I've been tired and chilled off and on, but no more stomach symptoms.Â I believe this is food poisoning, but Esther's night nurse isn't so sure, so she's requiring I wear a mask - the only problem is that I seem to be allergic to something in the masks - my skin turns bright red and itchy wherever the mask touches my face!
So it looks like I'll be getting a really good night's sleep, as I can't be with Esther tonight unless I wear that mask. I might try putting a lot of lotion on my face if she's awake, but I'm leaning towards sleeping as she'll be out on the floor tomorrow and then I won't get much sleep at all.
On the bright side - and this is really good news - Esther has been off oxygen since noon today and is still doing great.Â They put her on a new medication to make her heart beat more efficiently, and they also decided that requiring her to have oxygen levels above 95% is actually compounding her problems, so they allow her to be anywhere above 84% oxygen - and she has rarely gone below that.
So, I'm off to have a really good night's sleep, and hopefully tomorrow I can convince the infectious desease people that this is food poisoning.
