Down for the Count

Well, I’ve got it. My grandfather called this condition the Johnny Jump-Ups.  I’ve had mild intestinal discomfort for the past week, and thought I had beaten it.   I even ventured into the big city by bus for the day yesterday.    But I have been confined to my quarters for the entire day, and have not felt so exhausted for a very long time.  I can’t eat anything.  Earlier in the day I made the mistake of having some salty crackers, thinking to replenish lost salt.  I have been quite nauseous and feverish since then.  So here I am in bed with my computer, my link to the world.
