What a way to start the Christmas holiday.

I have the dreaded lurgy - viral gastro - that seems to be doing the rounds at the moment. I'm not going to bore you with details (because they are pretty gross) but suffice to say it's a lot worse than any gastro I have ever had. By a factor of about a billion. There has been a doctors visit, countless tests, antibiotics and even a trip to the hospital.

We were supposed to start our roadtrip to my parent's place this morning bright and early but instead Mr Kitty and I made our way to Royal North Shore's emergency room. I have never been in so much pain.

However, there does seem to be light at the end of the tunnel. I am feeling better and we hope to be on the road on Thursday.

In the meantime I am re-hydrating using gastrolyte and drinking the occasional sustagen to try and keep my energy. And lots and lots of water.

Fingers crossed that tomorrow morning I'll be as right as rain and ready to head down to the Christmas festivities!

So sorry to hear that you've been unwell.

Take care and hope you hit the road safely tomorrow. I'm in a similar situation. Head cold / sinuses and not looking forward to the 5 hour flight tomorrow.

Happy holidays to you and the Kitty family if I don't catch you before Christmas Day.

Ohhh no, you poor thing! Sounds like the one I had back in October, worst pain ever, and we had to call the radio doctor out.
Sending you lots of get-well-soon vibes! xx

Get well soon - it's going around my office, and I have my fingers crossed that I can somehow dodge it.

Oh geez, that's really bad timing :( Gastro is the pits - I swear I'm dying when I have it.

Get well quickly and travel safely.

Merry Christmas!
