Enjoying food after not being able to eat for a week....

I was sick like no other in my life about a week ago. I came down with a fever and a terrible ache in my side, which was due to a UTI (google it if you don't know what that means). I was prescribed an antibiotic which had side effects of loss of appetite and nausea. It was bad enough that since the fever would not go down for more than an hour I was pretty much bed ridden for about three or four days. Also my appetite was not growing since I did nothing but sleep before I went to the doctor. WhenI started the medication I really could not eat. The fever slowly went away, but when I tried to eat I ended up vomiting it back up several hours later. I can't even remember the last time I was so nauseated so suddenly. Pretty soon the side effects wore off though, and I was able to eat again. Now I'm very overweight or anything, but I do have a little extra meat on me and seeing that disappear to a leaner body in a span of five days is scary. But, as soon as I was able to eat (which I love to do) I took advantage and ate some good foods. =] I have never appreciated food so much. Not even just that food was available, but that I'm actually able to eat it now and savor the goodness of my favorite, pasta. =] Don't take small things for granted! Oh and my lovely BF took me to Whataburger today to enjoy some of that down home american classic yay!
