Sick to my stomach...

In my last post, I mentioned that watching Hacking Democracy left me feeling sick to my stomach.

I meant that literally, but, apparently, it wasn't the video.

At midnight, I started having stomach pain.  At 2am, my stomach was in agony (a 4 on the 1 to 10 pain scale).  I vomited, felt a little better, but the pain kept increasing.  I peaked at about a 6 at 4am when Rozz started vomiting.

Great.  Food poisoning.  I'd never had food poisoning this agonizing before.  Sure, I've had the rumbly belly with a chance of severe squirts, but never like this.  Realizing what was in store for Rozz, at 4:30 we were all in the Prius on the way to Dominican hospital.  Rozz and I were treated for gastric woes.  He fared slightly better than I did; they had to put me on an IV to get me hydrated again...  The pain kept up until about 9am, when it started to disappear.  We were discharged at around 10am.  I'm never eating yellow squash again.

I'm glad you're doing better. Having the "squirts" as you put it is never fun and foot poisoning in general really sucks and not in a nice way.

Also glad to read Rozz is ok as well. I assume your bride didn't eat the yellow squash or she has a bullet proof stomach?!

Thanks for the suggestion for watching Hacking Democracy. It also made me a little sick too... but I'll be sure not to eat squash ;) because I really don't need the squirts... besides, I need to buy more toilet paper... hehe.

Ick, ick, ick.

Glad you're feeling better.

As an aside to your previous post: The cash machine at my bank is made by Diebold, same company that makes a lot of the new voting machines. I mean, they can make a paper trail for my bank, but they can't be bothered to build one into their voting machines?

Oy.

We know it's not a question of capability. Sadly, it's a question of politics.
