I felt so terrible that by 8:30 on CHRISTMAS morning, I had driven myself to Emanuel Medical Center Emergency Room. Thankfully traffic was light and the Highway Patrol out in force! I figured this was going to be an all day deal and I was prepared to sleep on their couches. They checked me in VERY fast ... they actually have to admit you to the hospital. I must have looked REALLY bad ... you would too if you hadn't fixed MY hair in four days ... because within 15 minutes they called my name to Triage. Wow!! That was fast!! I thanked everyone profusely for spending their Christmas with a bunch of sickies ... and I think they were rather surprised!!! The entire process took 45 minutes to tell me severe sinusitis-bronchitis ... the best of all worlds to receive for Christmas!! Unfortunately, they can issue no meds ... so off I slogged to a pharmacy store near me!!
Guess what?? They are all closed!!! Oh sure, CVS was open, but the Pharmacy closed!! Please God, I need these meds VERY badly and I really have been a good girl!! The fourth one I stopped at was Walgreens and EUREKA!!! they were open. More thank you's for being open when I needed you so much!! So here's my Christmas present to myself!! $108.00 worth of drugs, big as horse pills. Even when I break them in half, I have a hard time swallowing these honkers!!!
And so I have been parked on the couch in front of this mess for the entire day!! UGH!! At least I can blow my nose, but the head pain persists. Please Santa ... just make me well for the next two months ... I promise I'll be a good girl!! My Christmas rice was delicious ... all four bowls of it. No, I haven't lost a pound!! Mac N Cheese would have been better, but I didn't have the stamina to cook!
Lift-off is still Saturday .... well maybe, or maybe not ... who knows. I'm just hoping Santa will make just ONE more trip to my house this Christmas and make me well!!
