24 Hours a day!
The drugs helped, but I could tell the SECOND they began to wear off because my intestines would start twitching.
The flights home were a nightmare. A flight attendant took one look at me and asked me if I was OK. Luckily I had enough drugs in me and was so exhausted from being sick, that I slept most of the way home. It took me 3 weeks to finally be able to eat normally again, without pain and nausea.
I can only imagine what the Extended Family thought of me. I hope they understood. I wasn't being rude or picky, just sickie.
Then about 2 weeks after we got home, we get a letter from Costco telling us that the power bars we bought to take with us, potentially had some of that tainted peanut butter in them.
We ate those daily.
