PHEW!!!

What a busy few days I have had. Friday after work I went to my BFF's house to spend some time with her. We only see each other like twice a year due to the fact that we live almost an hour from each other and with each others kiddos schedules we have no 'common' downtime. Well I decided to change that. We went out to dinner, then had to make a few kiddo stops for her DD but it was cool, see she's a Pop Warner Cheerleader from the #1 team and they were practicing for a competition. I got to watch. It was awesome except that my heart was in my throat the whole time as Stephanie (friend's DD) is a flyer. For those of you that have no clue what I'm talking about, she's the one that gets thrown up in the air and has to rely on the other girls to catch her. Damn they were good! Then we went out for a martini and dessert and back to her house where we stayed up till 1:30 chatting. I of course was up at 5! I was like now way, forced myself back down to 6:30 which is darn good for me!

Went home early Sat am to grocery shop and clean the house as some of my scrappy friends were coming over Sat night to play. Dawn and Deb F (we missed you Debbie) came and as always we had a great time. I made some Basic Grey ornaments that I've had since last year and did 2 BG card packs! One of them was also from last year that I won from Dawn believe it or not (totally legally) so now I've got my cards done for my friends that really don't care about my kiddo photos! YAY! Now to get the kiddo pic so I can get my other cards made and printed! They left about midnight so two very late nights for me. Those of you that know me well know I never stay up past 9pm!

Sunday I slept in a bit, till 9:30! Well that is because I woke up with a headache, sore throat and a fever! ICK! I just got over the crud and now I have it again? WTH? Yeah, so I spent the day on the couch and then took a 3 hour nap in the afternoon. Because I can't take another day off of work!

Yeah, well guess what, I wake up this morning feeling like crap, I think well I'll just call the doc later and leave work early to get checked out. I think I have strep throat and I need an antibiotic but my body had other plans. I started getting these really sharp pains. I was thinking they were chest pains but the more I pinpointed them they were not but they HURT. So off to the ER I went. They checked my heart, fine, bp, fine, so next was an ultrasound to check for gallstones. Which was also fine. HUH? Bloodwork not so fine, liver enzymes are elevated. Probably viral but need to follow up in a week to make sure. YAY. Oh and he gave me an antacid to treat for ulcer or gastritis. How embarrassing. That's all it was? Well I'm home now after 4 hours in the ER. I feel like crap. The rapid strep came back negative but they were sending the culture out for the 'real' growing test. If I don't have strep I'll be amazed cause I can't swallow a thing.

So that's all the exciting stuff from me. Now I'm headed to bed cause I didn't sleep a wink last night!

Hey Pam!That sure is a lot, packed into a few days. I had a great time on Saturday. I woke up Sunday with the worst headache. It would not go away. It lasted until today and I too stayed home from work. It is still kinda here. It dulls, then it comes back, but will not completely go away. Are you feeling any better??

Karen said...

What miserableness! At least you enjoyed your two nights before Sunday brought you down. I hope they can figure it out quickly and make it go away!

Cindy said...

You poor thing! Put your feet up and feel better soon.

I am glad you went because what if it WAS something worse and you ignored it?! I think there is a crazy throat thing going around. Dane's school nurse was convinced he had strep because his tonsils were nearly touching eachother but the text came back negative for him.
