First of all, waking up at 3am with stomach problems is never a good sign.
Second, I'm so thankful for friends who will go to the store for you on short notice, to get your favorite - if somewhat obscure - things, such as ginger tea. Also thankful for moms who will listen to the whole detailed story at 8am.
I don't think I've been this sick since I was in junior high. I had food poisoning and Gary's mom had to drive me home from the math contest, about 20 minutes from our school, I think. She was a brave lady for letting me ride with her. At least I didn't treat her car the way I did my bathroom yesterday morning.
