My birthday did not start too well, was up all night with DB trotting back and forth to the loo. He did managed about 4 hours sleep at one point but I was awake. He is not responding to the medication, so if it has not cleared up in the morning I will be getting the Dr. in. He has eaten the same as me and also not been in contact with anyone who could pass on a virus. As he had C>Diff 4 years ago I am very well aware it can re-occur.

Thank you to those of you who sent me birthday greetings, very kind of you. We obviously are not going to DD2's for lunch. It will be put off for another time.

Its pouring with rain and the wind is blowing the trees, so we are getting some of the fallout from the hurricane as it passes through. The sky is very grey and overcast.

I am going to try and have a nap this afternoon, make up for some of the sleep I lost last night. DB is still in bed, close to the bathroom. I will put him in the shower later and change his PJ's he is on a dry toast and water diet for today.

DB had a shower and came down for an hour or so but has gone back to bed. I am going to try him with some poached chicken and rice for is supper with jelly for dessert, will be keeping him off dairy for a day or two.

I did manage a nap this afternoon, will not be sorry to go to bed this evening and hope for a better night.


  1. Oh! So sorry your birthday has not been a success, maybe you will celebrate with family later in the week. Hope DB soon feels better and you catch up on sleep!!! Best wishes anyway! X

  2. Best birthday wishes to you, I am sorry it did not work out as planned, but you will be able to celebrate later when DB is feeling better.
    Pleased to read that he managed some time out of bed, lets hope he feels much better tomorrow.
    I am sure you are both suffering from all the stress of moving, time to relax now and enjoy your new home.
    Best wishes,
    Pam in TX.

  3. Sorry to hear that DB is not so well but hoping that by now he may have picked up a little. Wishing you a restful night tonight, so that you can both get some sleep and feel better tomorrow. Seems inappropriate to wish you a happy birthday in the circumstances, so let's just use my dad's favourite phrase and wish you many happy returns of the day! Hugs to both of you xx

  4. Oh dear - I hope that he's feeling better soon and you can have those birthday celebrations with your family xxx

  5. Happy Birthday to you!!

    What a shame that DB happened to get sick in the wee hours of your birthday but with the blustery, rainy weather, perhaps postponing your birthday celebration and staying home was for the best. Hope DB recovers quickly, that you don't get "it", and that your nap helped with the missed sleep fatigue.

    Birthday hugs!

  6. Happy Birthday! Sorry to hear that DB isn't feeling well so hope he recovers soon and you can celebrate. xx

  7. Hope the birthday celebration can be done when all is well again - but sending many happy returns Anne - Happy Birthday.
