I’ve had a truly awful few days. The wife caught a sickness bug thats been doing the rounds and brought it home to share.
The problem with my wife is that when she gets ill, she really gets ill. A normal blood pressure for her, when she’s healthy, is something like 95/50 so anything that lowers that makes her hit the deck faster than a footballer in the penalty box. Something like diahorrea that literally turns your arse hole into a fountain and smells, well evil, will drop that blood pressure five points in no time. Add in vomiting and I soon have a wife who faints every time she takes a shit.
Oh you think thats bad? As it progresses she no longer has to be standing or sitting upright for her to faint. She’s the only person I’ve met who will pass out laying down. Don’t think thats bad? Well what if she’s vomiting when she passes out?
I stayed up the entire night with her, catching her when she fainted, turning her when she vomited and swapping buckets and bowls where needed.
All this with a broken arm!
I know, I know I’m a hero. But now I’ve got the bug and my ring is as raw as if I’d rolled up a sheet of sand paper and… well you get the picture.
So as Im unlikely to get anything else done, today will be another writing day. I wonder if I can have a 7000 word day?
The challenge is set. I’ll report back later with an update.
