Not good...

Pin It Now!

Lauren and I got food poising from eating at McDonald's on Sunday night. We're doing better now but we both still have fevers and body aches so we're staying home today. We were on our way back from Carmel when we decided to grab a hamburger around 7pm...big mistake!!!!

I took photos while in Carmel but I haven't felt well enough to upload them yet.

Carousel222 said...

Sorry to hear about your food poisoning. I hope you both get to feeling better fast.

Debbie said...

Oh Cindy, so sorry to hear this. McDonald's - big mistake! LOL but not really.

I can't wait to see your Carmel photos though. My friends who rent a house in Carmel each summer phoned me this morning. They spent two months in Carmel and now are driving along the Oregon coast. Terri called me from the Hallmark Resort in Cannon Beach as she described her view from the room. As I'm in triple digit heat in Phoenix, she was experiencing the sound of the ocean with a cool breeze. Go figure! But I even enjoyed looking this place up on the internet and seeing the photos. I could use my imagination and pretend I was there.

I pray that you and your daughter feel better very soon.

violetlady said...

I hope you feel better very soon. I think you should report this to the McDonalds manager and also the health department.

Holly said...

Poor girls! It's horrible when everyone is sick at once! I like to keep charcoal capsules on hand. They asorb poisions pronto but sometimes, it's just too late!

Hope you both feel better soon! ♥

Glenda said...

Did you call the McDonalds you ate at ? if not call the Health Department. There is a reason you got it, and others will suffer the same.


On the other side. Take it easy. Nothing is so important that it can't wait till tomorrow.

I'm so sorry Cindy, take care of yourself. There is a lot of swine fly hitting areas now too so be careful.

I'm so very sorry. Just when I was all ready to be totally jealous about your going to Carmel, too. I hope you both feel much much better soon. I know it's horrible.

Oh no! That's awful! Hugs to you both and hope you feel better soon!

Terri and Bob said...

Feel better soon! I cannot imagine what food poisoning from McD's looks like....

Cherished Treasures said...

Poor thing. Drink lots of fluid if you can to keep from getting dehydrated. Hope you are up and better soon. I have had it twice in the past 5 years and it can really knock the wind out of your sales. Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Carol

Dawn said...

Hope you're both feeling better soon Cindy. We've got the flu here today. Hope all the guests we had for labor day don't get it! Carmel sounds wonderful...and cool!

Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss said...

Cindy, I feel bad for you and Lauren. I've never had food poisoning (thank goodness!) but I'm sure you are miserable. Please take care!

I do hope you will report this ASAP to the local health dept. (or whatever agency follows up on "dirty dining" in your area) so they can investigate this McDonald's food handling practices. Surely others are bound to become ill if they don't correct the problem.

Nezzy said...

Oh my! There is not much worse than experiencing food poising. It took me a week to get back to normal after my last. MIL turkey....I only thought she loved me. Get to feeling better and may God Bless ya'll.

Brenda Leyland said...

Oh my, I am sorry to hear of your horrid experience. Wishing you prayers for total recovery!

And I'd add that your experience should be shared with the proper food handling authorities, in case there is a bigger problem that needs sorting out. I know, my hubby used to be a public health inspector.

Rhondi said...

So sorry to hear you got food poisoning. It's pretty nasty isn't it? Hope you're felling better today.

Glad you guys are feeling better, hope you will both be completely recovered very soon!

Ms. Bake-it said...

I am sorry to hear you and Lauren suffered from food poisoning. Glad to hear you are on the mend. I certainly hope you called the McDonald's you ate at and/or the health department and filed a complaint.

I am looking forward to seeing your pictures of Carmel when you are feeling well enough to post them.

Susimac said...

Hope you both feel real better soon. Take care food poisoning is so horrid.

Julie said...

I have not been able to sit and enjoy blogs for a long time...because of my sugery and the meds. I am playing catch up now!

Hope you guys feel better soon too.

Cindy said...

Cindy, I am so sorry to hear that, I hope you and your sweet daughter will be feeling well very soon. Hugs, Cindy S.

Diva Kreszl said...

Be sure to let McDonald's know asap...there are probably other people sick and the center for disease control likes to keep track of these things. I was so sick with food poisoning 3 years ago and ended up in the hospital for four days so be careful and watch for signs of dehydration! Get well soon!

Pamela said...

Cindy, I knew something was wrong. You've never been away for so long without explanation. So sorry to hear you are sick. I'm just glad to hear that you are both on the mend.

Take your time, get well, we'll all be here when you're feeling up sharing again.

Whimsical Creations said...

Oh no, hope you are feeling better soon!

Cottage Rose said...

Cindy; I am so sorry too hear that you and your daughter are so sick... I hope you get well soon. I have had food poison before and it is awful. My Prayers are with you both.

Get well soon....

Esther Sunday said...

Been there. Very unpleasant. Hope you both feel better realy soon!

Charlene said...

Oh Bummer! I had that on August 30th. Went to a BDay party for one of the Grands & YUCK! We called it food posioning but, it could have been "the disease of the week" from one of MANY children at the party. HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER SOON!

TinaTx said...

Been there, done that - not fun at all. (although I still don't know where mine came from and I was the only one in the family that got sick!)
Hope you feel better soon.

raisedincotton said...

Oh Cindy I am soooo sorry, please feel better soon.

Donna said...

Yuk... Hope you're both feeling better soon... no fun at all.

Carmel is one of my favorite places. Whenever my mom would come out to CA we'd drive down to Carmel and Monterey, do the 17 mile drive, go to Clint Eastwood's Hog's Breath Inn... All the stuff my mom loved... Just that one word - Carmel - brings back so many lovely memories. Looking forward to your photos! ...Donna

Queen Bee said...

Cindy, I have never heard of running a temp with food poisoning, maybe you have the flu!

Sandi@ My Yellow Door said...

Oh Cindy,
I know exactly how you feel! My three boys and I got food poisoning at McDonald's years ago and were we ever sick! I haven't eaten there since! That was about 25 years ago now. Hope you're both feeling better soon.

Blessings,
Sandi

Melissa Miller said...

Cindy I'm truly so sorry. I know food poisoning is the WORST.

Please take care and I hope you both feel better soon.

~Blessings, Melissa

rozetta said...

Oh, my, gosh! You should let them know. I wonder how many other people got sick.

~elaine~

Becky from Tennessee said...

Oh Cindy, that is awful. Hope
you and Lauren are feeling much
better! I agree with the others
that you should let McDonalds
know....also, maybe the health
department. Food poisoning is
absolutely the pits. Did you
both eat the same?? It's pretty
scary when you can't even eat
at a McDonalds without getting
sick.

Feel better soon.

Becky

Cheryl said...

You need to report it to the Health department... the location/time, what you ate etc. They take that information and depending on how many people get sick and report it...sometimes they put it on the news to notify the community-- and obviously, they do an inspection of the place.

Trisha said...

Dear Cindy,
I hope( by now) you both are doing much better! Wishing you rest and hoping that tomorrow finds you both back on your feet again!

Oh, I just had lunch at McDonald's. Not a good time to read this. :)

Hope you are feeling better.

Cottagecheap said...

Hate to be the 'nag' here, but fevers don't accompany food poisoning, instead stomach flu....Sadly I have had both.

Lisa said...

Lovely! Thanks for sharing!

DreamgirlLisa said...
