The Delhi Belly

So.. for the past 48 hours I have been sick as a dog.

Why? Because apparently I got the Delhi Belly.

Ugh. I do not wish it upon ANYONE. I have been MISERABLE for the past two days.

Word to the wise: Chinese food is not safe anywhere. Especially in India...

Ashlee got sick last week and then I got sick Sunday night. What did we both have? The Chinese food from the place down at the corner...

Melanie took a picture of me curled up hiding under the pillow


But now I have learned to be more careful about eating hot foods.

So random fact: Whenever I get sick and can't eat for a few meals or throw up, for some reason if I eat beef, I won't have a problem with it. I don't know why or how it works (especially since it should be hard on my stomach) but it always helps me feel better.

So tonight was awesome when Sister Shailajan (Sister Alice) decided to make beef for us tonight! Yes, we had beef in India. :)

And for my first meal in 48 hours... it was delicious. And I kept it down. Hallelujah!

The wonderful beef gravy as she calls it

Sister Shailajan told us to sit this way so that we could learn how to eat the "Indian" way. It was fun! :)

I still feel horrible but I've learned to be a wee bit more careful with the local street food. I hope the week gets a little better. We'll see. :)
