Sorry guys, no real post today. I'll give you a brief update on my aching head.
I hovered around a 3 on the pain scale most of the day. That is about as low as it ever gets. The doc had me re-establish the numbers, as she thinks anything above a 7 should get you to a doctor or hospital.
Fine - I can recaliber the scale.
In the afternoon I took Petey on his walk and lo and behold about one-third of the way into it, pain crept to a 6 then a 7 - easily. But nothing I could do but try to get him through his walk.
I love that dog, but he thwarted my entire walk. He opted not to - or at least not fast. Our normal 35 minute walk took one hour and ten minutes. And the killer, he didn't even drop a deuce.
By the time I got home, I was a full-fledged 8.
Fuck the doctor, I took pain med and went and put my head on pillows. Within another two hours I was back to a 4 or so. Only then did Petey want to out in the yard and cop a squat. At least Sophie tended to me.
Dinner didn't really happen. I started to prep it and stopped. 710 kindly finished, but I was so nauseated that I took a few bites and went to the couch. I am forcing fluids though. I don't know why.
It was too late for me to call my neurologist so I will do that first thing in this morning. ...and no, the emergency department on a Monday is horrid. FYI - it is the busiest day in all EDs. People wait all weekend to see their doc, can't get in and then go to the ED for treatment. Wait times are doubled - easily.
So we are on day
Oh look there - I did get a post. Honest, I was going to just say 'no post today' and leave it be, but I can't stop myself.
