Asking for prayers please

I am asking for prayers for myself. I am not sure if I have caught a stomach bug or not. About two weeks ago my stomach was hurting quite badly when I woke up one morning and had to take a day off work. I was also visiting the facilities a few times. Without getting into too much detail it started hurting again pretty bad yesterday and I woke up this morning at 3am with the same stuff. I catch stomach bugs easily so it’s possible I got it again. I have to go back to work tomorrow and I have three Christmas events today. I want them to be enjoyable but I am afraid if this makes me feel this bad all day I’ll have to stay home.... I am asking for prayers for relief. Thank you...

Thank y’all. I have called my doctors office and talked to an after hours person so they can call me back when they are open. I think they open tomorrow. This has gone on a little long so I want to get checked and make sure it’s not anything to serious.

Good idea, mine turned out to be gallstones. I’m praying for you.

I wonder if there is a Stomach/Intestinal Virus running around. Was woken up at 10 PM Thurs. night with the urgent need. Spent the next 8-9 hours not daring to venture more than 10 ft from the toilet. Very uncomfortable internals and a low grade fever. This persisted into Saturday evening. The urgent trips were less frequent after the initial onset. This I believe is due to being completely void.

Water I could stomach and drank as much as possible but still showed signs of dehydration. Luckily my current job allowed for my wife to drive me to the different facilities I needed to inspect and all inspections were on the ground. I was feeling dizzy in the head and out of sorts a bit and did not want to risk driving in Houston in that condition. Was somewhat of a difficult work day due to illness, keeping focused, and keeping distance from people and using a lot of hand sanitizer. Used it before I touched anything someone else may contact later.

Broke fever late Saturday night. Up 3 AM Sunday, Felt better. Was able to stomach some yogurt and water. Saltines later in the day caused quite a bit of discomfort. Even today I can only eat a small amount food. None of my regular stuff though. The smell of beef, sausage, pork, even chicken leaves stomach queasy and head a little light. I am getting better though I think. I would not want a second round of it anytime soon. Still weak and only running at 70% my normal.

I just give thanks for all that I have been blessed with.

Thank you all. Was speaking with my grandmother tonight. She said it sounds like my gall bladder possibly. She said it sounds like what she felt like before hers was removed. It could be a virus I guess but I am feeling super bloated after just a little food and just a dull ache. It gets worse in the evening and at night. Will keep you guys updated
