Tales from the Hospital
Then I got blessed with not one, but many wonderful nurses. And what a diverse staff. I have had nurses from the Congo, England, Haiti, and some Scandanavian country. Very interesting group of people.
Being in the hospital sucks, no doubt about it, but at least it's been entertaining. I'm feeling a lot better, and I'm definetly on the mend. It was pretty scary there, I got congested VERY quickly, which has never happened before. Usually it's gradual, but on Wed I saw my cardiologist and she said I was totally stable, and by Thursday afternoon I wasn't feeling great, and by Friday I was freaking out and just waiting for the kids to get home from school so I could get to the hospital. It was pretty bleak because when I got the the ER, it was, as usual, packed, and yet they got me in within 10 minutes, into a room within a couple of hours, and medicated up the wazoo really quickly. The hospital staff seems to think that this particular episode was caused by a ridiculous amount of ibuprofan I took for a migraine. I can't take anything for a freaking migraine now. Literally nothing. I'm just going to have to suffer. Which sucks.
The Boy came and surprised me with a visit today. He arrived, got the lunch menu, ordered a huge lunch, ate, and then watched the Patriots. What a guy! Actually it was great seeing him, and he made such an effort to get here.
The Girl is spending tonight with my friend I, and will get on the bus tomorrow morning for school. Hopefully I'll get out of here tomorrow, and then they'll just come home from school as usual.
Thanks for all the good wishes. I really appreciate your kind thoughts. It was a very very strange Yom Kippur, but I'm doing so much better and feeling so much happier. Now if only I could get a frigging night's sleep. I didn't sleep a wink last night, but I caught up on many TV shows I've never had the chance to see, which has been fun. Tonight, Ambien! Stumble It!
