LG, hope you are feeling better soon. I'm so glad she left another message and you decided to go. Probably better if you're that ill to wait a bit. Don't want to infect her, then she might get sick, too, and that would stink!
She really will understand and not think it's so fishy. I mean, she's human, and knowing you're scared and nervous, sure, it could cross her mind, like whether you feel physically or more emotionally "sick." But really, at this point, what's the difference anyway? When it's bad enough to be throwing up, well, you're just plain sick and need to rest and rehydrate and baby yourself till you're stronger. That's not the same as her actually thinking you're making it up or anything, if she just wonders. It would be more about caring and wanting to know more about you in every way, I think.
She knows people do get sick, and it's more likely under great stress when the immune system is weaker. You have certainly been under more than normal stress. Take care and hope you reschedule as soon as possible. You are a fighter and can really hang in there. I admire that in you.
