Again, we were up early - 530am this time. I guess someone's body clock hasn't fully adjusted to the time zone. We managed to entertain ourselves until breakfast was served at 7.
However, towards the end of breakfast, I started to feel an urgent need for a bathroom. So I hot-footed it back to our cabin. And there I stayed for the day.
After I threw up for the first time, I thought it might be wise to visit the medical centre. I duly did so, and filled in the ream of forms that are required to get permission to be ill on a ship. Then the nice nurse told me it'd cost between $70 and $150 to see a doctor. I suddenly felt miraculously better, but took her up on her offer of Imodium for $7.
I've no idea what caused it; perhaps the rough seas exacerbated the top-half-trouble, but the bottom-half was unrelated and unusual for me.
I took him for a short while so that H could have a facial at the spa, and finished off the ice cream he ordered... and regretted it 20 minutes later. Even the nibble of apple I had at 7pm as I put X to bed came back again. This did not bode well for Tuesday's excursion in Belize!
Xander's last words to me as I tucked him up were "I hope you're better tomorrow, Dad. Then I can give you kisses and hugs again."
I went to sleep at 8pm and hoped for an overnight recovery.
