Never Again

Never again will I drink Gatorade. I have never liked the drink, but my doctor recommended I drink fluid with electrolytes (in addition to water). However, after days of continuous vomiting, I can unequivocally state that Gatorade is the most heinous thing to regurgitate (sorry if that was graphic).

Today, I was Gatorade free. It was definitely a good choice, and I do not plan on going back to any form of Gatorade drink. Now, the question is: "How will I get my electrolytes?" I haven't figured this out yet, but I am going to go with my other doctor's suggestion and drink some Kool-Aid. Mmmmm....sugar.

Now what to do with those 18 unopened bottles of Fierce Grape Gatorade.

In other news, my mother-in-law has completely rescued us. It is such a relief to have help with Eliza. I've been able to spend the majority of the day in bed and on the couch without feeling too guilty. I'm still feeling pretty miserable, but it is much easier to be optimistic these days. I'm praying the nausea ends soon and eating solid food becomes a common occurrence. And in all honesty, I think the Gatorade might have contributed to some of my nausea. I only threw up ONCE today and that is worth celebrating!


  1. Oh my gosh, what a mess. Sorry. :( I couldn't ever drink Gatorade either. It upset my stomach. I hope you can eat soon, too. You can't go on like this forever. Love you guys!

  2. Pedialyte has a clear liquid that is tasteless and has electrolytes! Ad you can probably mix it with that Kool Aid! Glad you are starting to feel a little better! I've been thinking about you!

  3. We will gladly pay you for the Gatorade. I love that flavor.
