Bears Across America: Illness and Fatigue

April 23, 2011 is the day we got sick.

A couple days ago Zeke started throwing up after eating.  We kept going as he seemed to be maintaining, but as we arrive in Flagstaff AZ we realized he needed a break.

Luckily we had an extra day built into our Flagstaff plans, so we spend Saturday taking care of Zeke.

Later in the day we took Zeke to the emergency room to ensure he wasn't dehydrated.  Turns out he was still doing pretty good.  So we took him home, gave him some anti-nausea meds, and let him sleep it off.

While we were in the ER, I got sick myself and spent the night at the hotel sick to my stomach.  Luckily my issue only lasted the night, and Zeke was perking up, and we were able to continue our adventures (What those adventures are will have to wait until tomorrows post).  Only losing a day for such serious issues was a blessing.

We'll get back to the fun adventuring stuff tomorrow, promise!
