Clearly I should not have tempted the Gods of fate yesterday by saying things would be better in the morning.

The stomach bug continues, only 10x worse today. I suspected something was up last night as I started to develop a major headache, which felt like ice picks had been driven through my left and right frontal lobes, along with parts of my body going partially numb (seriously). It was somewhat disconcerting, and initially affected the lower left-hand side of my face. At the moment it's affecting my left foot. I felt really grim this morning, and it was an effort to get out of bed. I thought a shower might perk me up, but while washing my hair I threw up the remains of two oranges I ate last night. Of course there wasn't much left, which meant lots of dry heaving as well. At least it was in the shower. I've got dreadful diarrhoea, worse than any stomach bug I can remember, and I had plenty in Brazil. I'm drinking flat Coke, just to get some liquids and sugar in. I've been told 1,001 different things I should eat and drink, but this works for me, although I would prefer lemonade (which we don't have).

It's becoming a struggle even to type this, so I'll probably go and rest for a while.
