No more take out from that place for me. We ordered Chinese for lunch today. I ordered the same thing as always: L19, General Tsao's chicken. I'm the only one who ordered it & the only one who got sick. I left work early to spend the rest of the day in bed. My stomach was upset & I barely made it home and to the bathroom. I know, more than you needed to know. (From the diet point of view I'm not counting my lunch today as cheating. If I throw up the food it doesn't count.) I took a migraine pill, and crawled in bed. This was about 1:30. Next thing I know it's just after 4 and Ronnie & Paige walk in the door. When I could safely do so, I took another migraine pill. Now it's down to something Tylenol could knock out. Of course I can't take Tylenol on top of the migraine medicine, so I have to deal with it.

Ronnie & Paige were great. They came in and he fixed her a snack and set her down to watch Dora. Not our usual evenings, but it kept her occupied so I could rest & he could get dinner ready. He fixed a meal of baked fish, steamed broccoli, & rice. I stuck to the broccoli mostly. After dinner he gave Paige a bath, and read her the required ump-teen books. Now she's in bed and we're not far behind. My tummy feels better, so it's back to work tomorrow morning!

blech...feel better. Good luck with Chinese Food. I had a similar experience (although mine actually landed me in the hospital with dehydration I got so sick) and I could never eat at P****** again.

Uuuuuugh. Nothing worse than an upset stomach. :( Glad you are starting to feel better.
