How did you spend Father's Day?
I spent father's day in the hospital.
I was supposed to be at Kings Dominion. I was just getting dressed, and reached down to open my bottom drawer. As I pulled it open a bit, I had the worst pain I have felt in my life shoot through my left side.
Unlike before, I could barely flip around writhing while I flopped into my bed, which did NOTHING for the pain. I found a single position that wasn't too bad, and got my wife to get me my muscle relaxer and my Vicodin.
But it just got worse, I couldn't find a position that didn't hurt for more than 2 minutes at a time. And I could get a foot on the floor.
So, we called an ambulance, and I got a free almost-all-expenses paid trip to the Prince William Hospital.
So far as I can tell, they have no idea what's wrong with me. They shot me up with drugs (synthetic heroin, some N-said, a nausious medicine and muscle relaxant, and x-rayed everything.
When I woke up 4 hours later (around 1:30) they told me there was nothing they could find wrong, and I could leave. But putting me in a wheelchair drove my to scream again, so I got back in bed and got another shot of heroin (I think). The 2nd attempt at around 5pm worked better, so now I'm home sitting in my chair.
I'm on OxyContin now, along with my daily N-said and back to muscle relaxors. I'll have to see some doctor tomorrow, but I don't know what they will do about it. It is unsettling to be told there is nothing wrong, that I can't hurt it, when I just got dragged down my stairs by an emergency response team.
Anyway, I'm back online, watching "Because of Wynn Dixie", and a little afraid of what tomorrow holds.......
On the other hand, my weight tonight was 219 pounds.
