Boyfriend - Week 3 of being mysteriously ill
Eventually I'll have to come up with something else to call him, but for now, Boyfriend will do.
As I mentioned in yesterday's entry, Boyfriend has been ill for quite some time. It started on the 13th. He couldn't stay from the restroom for more than an hour at a time (sometimes as little as 10 minutes), and that went on for a week. Then, after vomiting violently, he felt fine. We thought it was over, and that he was recovering, as he suffered from only a bit of fatigue for another week until yesterday. The frantic bathroom runs started again, and he woke up this morning with another urgent need to vomit. He's dehydrated (even though I make him drink plenty of fluids), pale, and after weighing himself this morning, we've found that he's lost 12 pounds in 3 weeks! It was finally enough to scare him into seeing a doctor.
He is going to the doctor today, and I am so worried. I wish I could stay home to care for him, but almost everyone in my office has taken the week off, and someone has to be here to make sure everything runs smoothly.
I pray it's nothing too serious.
