I'm in limbo

Not sure what's happening with Hubby. One day he's nauseated and feeling shaky, the next he's feeling better.
Then we're back to nausea, spacey head, weak and tired.
It doesn't seem to matter what he does - whether he eats or not. Rests or not.

So one day I'm feeling encouraged. The next, I'm down in the dumps again.
That's me - what about him? It must feel awful for him - feeling like you're going to throw up all the time.
Reminds me of being on a boat during a storm.

Back in 2005, I was in the Bahamas. Joined a group to go swimming with dolphins. It was awesome!!!!
It happened the first day out on the boat (catamaran, actually).

The journey out to sea was wonderful. Sun beating down on us, ocean breeze, as the catamaran sailed gently through the waves. We stopped along the way to practice snorkeling. It was fun! Something I'm glad I learned and will definitely do again!

Back on the boat and out into the ocean once more. Scouting for dolphins.
The plan was to wait for their approach and then quietly slip into the water, hoping they would stick around and swim with us.

This was our first day out and we saw not a one. Quite disappointing. But we were at the beginning of our exciting adventure - no need to panic, there would be more days ahead.
Finally it was time to turn around and head back.

Suddenly, the wind grew stronger, rocking the boat. Apprehensively, I looked around. One minute everything was clear, but now fast approaching were these humongous thick, gray storm clouds. I watched helplessly as they came closer and closer, electrifying the air.

Soon we were engulfed in the fog. Rain pelted the boat.
Waves intensified - rocking our boat even more!
Some of the ladies threw-up over the side. I came close, but held on tight and kept my eyes on the horizon (someone told me to do that and it worked).

As we approached the dock, I heaved a great sigh of relief. I was so happy to get off that d*mn boat and back on to dry land once more!

Tough journey - and you're right- how difficult it must be for him daily.
