So much for not making it about ME.

Yeah, so remember when I said I wouldn't make a big deal about being sick? Yeah, well maybe I should have.
Because I am SICK.
Yesterday started off like any other day, I got into the shower, getting ready for a nice (HA!) day at the office. While I was brushing my teeth (yup, I do that in the shower.) I suddenly felt sick. Like pukey sick. Um....eeeewwwwww. So I spit, but then I start to cough and blood comes out. Yeah, BLOOD. I call out to Daddy and he informs me that my nose is also bleeding, hey, let's take you to the ER!
We drop Little Man off at daycare and off we go.
My nose still wouldn't stop bleeding.
So after three hours and millions of X-Rays and lots of sitting and waiting, they come back to ask me if I have been coughing the last few days. "No. I've been really congested (which I told them four times) but I haven't been coughing at all." "Hmmmm, that's weird." the doc says. Let me tell you when a doc says something is weird, there is something wrong.
"You have an ear infection, a sinus infection, and your lungs were about to get infected. Like beginning stages of Pneumonia. So you should have been coughing..."
So I get sent home with a nice list of scripts to take. And lots of people to answer to, because Daddy had called my job and a few other people to inform them that I was probably dying.
But I'm here at work today, because I still don't feel sick I just still feel really congested. And I can't hear out of my right ear, but that's okay because I use my left ear for the phone at work. And I'm still not coughing. So I figure I could be here earning money instead of being home. Unless I start feeling sick, then I'll go home. Or unless I start coughing up blood again, then I'll go back to the hospital.
But for now I'll be here, smiling and nodding, pretending I can hear these people talking to me.

What an experience Diana!
I hope that the meds they prescribed kick your illness in the butt. As for not being able to hear out of your right ear...be sure that's the one you offer up to Stoopid when she speaks to you.

Wow, and you don't feel sick????? We are now on our third cold in 9 weeks at our house, and each strain is getting uglier.

Even though you don't feel sick, I hope you feel better soon!!!
