Just Another Busy Day....With Meningitis

Yep, you read it correctly. I am entirely too busy just trying to keep up during my productive hours of the productive days. Then getting caught up from what seems a constant flow of new issues. And yep, the "With Meningitis" is true.

I don't have a clue how I got. But did I! Just hours after I was enjoying appetizers with friends, I was in the hospital. It was that pesky 104.7 fever that clinched that one. And my head and neck. Serious pain. I was so out of it that I don't even remember being taken from the ER to my 7 South (Cancer Floor) room. I do, unfortunately remember the lumbar puncture in the ER (they used my "body art" to guide the needle) and vague recollections of the CT and x-rays.

The next few days were awful. Fevers, pain, huge pain, and lots of vomiting. Then of course I pulled the quick ticket out and came home to do it all some more.

I am somewhat more functioning now but really just don't feel well, despite various and assorted medications and lots of rest. So now I am also frustrated by this. Who is fine one minute then hours later really not fine? Hey, I guess that's just how I roll....

But I did have a great couple of hours at the For No Reason event!

When is this going to STOP happening to you? Question is retorical! Sorry you have to pay such a penalty for trying to lead a semi-normal life.
