So So So Sick re deux

Yesterday my 'cold' got increasingly worse throughout the day. I went to bed and in the middle of the night woke with a fever of 103.1. It was hard doing much of anything, sleeping, etc. last night.. My mom and I got up at 7 am and went to the ER. I was miserable until I broke a sweat and the fever went away. The ER doctor was really great and he hooked me up to IV fluids, and also hooked me up with some Demerol while I was there. I was in some serious pain. Coughing, fever, my muscles hurt, headache. My hospital visit was comfortable. I finally got to go home at about noon, and guess what? They don't know what it is. It's just something viral that I have to wait to go away. He prescribed me some Hydrocodone/Lortab for pain, and some nausea medicine. We also did a pregnancy test just in case - thank f'ing christ that came back negative. ;)

mom's making some homemade soup and I want to eat it soo bad.. but it's not ready yet.:(

So So So Sick

So, yesterday was the eight day in a row I worked at the mall information booth. Selling gift cards. At the busiest shopping time of the year. And I've been horribly ill.

Today was going to be the ninth, but I woke up and I just couldn't do it. I broke down. My tonsils are huge, my voice is gone from explaining the gift card system to every fucking customer, my head hurts, my body is weak, I'm just so exhausted. I called in, and thankfully Trina was really nice about it and just said, "Just stay home, it's okay, we'll be okay." And so I did. I just took half of a pill and I'm going to lay in bed. I wish it would all just go away.

Emergency Emergency

So I talked to my doctor yesterday and he told me to go to the ER for a strep test.

So about 4 pm, my mom and I went to the ER. The dr. asked if I wanted pain medication and I said, 'Heck yes!' so they gave me 2 lortabs which are really strong. It knocked me out for the three hours we were there. They took a chest x-ray, put in a hep lock, withdrew blood. Then we sat around until they let us know that he is going to treat me for Bronchitis. So he sent me home with some antibiotics and orders for rest. How did I get bronchitis?
