Melissa's Blah Post

I got the worst stomach virus this week. And I was TRES bummed that I didn't get to sing the concert Wednesday night. They did all right without me, though. The NY Times review was great. But I really wanted to sing the pieces, especially for an audience. Rehearsing is great too, but I feel like a big part of the experience is the rapport with the audience.

There was a recording made for possible broadcast (the dress rehearsal was recorded too, so I might be on at least part of it). If I get a copy of it I might post an audio clip. Or a link, if it IS on radio.

I still feel awful. I got up and made myself oatmeal today, which is the only solid food I've had except for half a piece of toast last night. Then I promptly went back to bed because I felt terribly blah and the oatmeal didn't seem like such a good idea. But I feel lots better after a nap.

I've had more sodas this week than I usually do in a year.

Hope everyone stays well!

Sounds like hell. Sorry you are suffering.
Too bad about being left out of the concert. I'd love to hear it when/if you post a clip.

Feel better!

I will do my best to support and nurse you. I sure love you. I always feel so inadequate when you are sick.

Want some broth?

Oh, I hope you're better soon! Bummer about not being well enough to sing in the concert, but probably a good idea to stay home...

Get well soon!

Oh no, stomach bugs are the worst!

Hope you feel better soon. How frustrating to miss the concert! But yeah, hope you can post a clip.

Hope you're feeling better.

Bland starches never work for me. Contrary to conventional wisdom, I always feel restored after a stomach bug by eating something spicy - like Pho (or as my kids call it, adventure soup).
