Haha. It’s not what you are thinking.
I woke up around 7am and the boat was really rocking. I grabbed a coke and went back to slept. Matt and I were not meeting Patrick, his brother, for breakfast until after 9. I finally got up a little after 9 and decided to hop in the shower before breakfast. Let me just say shaving in the shower on a rocking boat is no easy feat but I managed. After my shower I knew I wasn’t feeling well. I hoped a little fresh air would help. I told Matt I didn’t feel well and he also suggested fresh air. We were headed out the door went I decided to go straight to the bathroom. I sat there for a few minutes but nothing happened. Matt told me to go get fresh air and I practically ran down the hallway and up the stairs to the deck. A few minutes later Matt and Patrick met me outside.
The guys stood with me for a few minutes before I said I thouht we could head to breakfast. We went to sit on the Lido deck and Matt grabbed me a Ginger ale. I sipped that while they got food. They weren’t back long before I ran to the bathrom to throw up. At this point I figured it wouldn’t get better so I asked Matt if we could go to the medic. The three of us took off to deck 4.
The nurse was really nice but she said that to get a shot I would have to see a doctor and it would cost around $100.00. Ouch! I knew I wasn’t that sick so I settled on the nurse and zofran. I took the zofran and prayed it would work quickly. I guess it did work but I threw up once more. After that I actually started to feel better. By lunch I managed to eat some fruit. The rest of the afternoon I laid out on the deck reading.
I am really glad I decided to go to the nurse early. I can imagine how much worse I would have felt had I not gone. Not to mention I would have been miserable on today’s excursion, but more on that later.
I’m actually a little surprised I got sea sick. I’ve been on boats in the ocean and been fine. Today we took a water taxi from Cozuemel to Playa del Carmen and that sucker was really rocking and I was fine. Crazy right? Matt was very surprised I was felt fine.
So that’s how our first day at sea was. We will have another full day on Saturday but a got a few extra zofran and I will continue to take my draminine.
