Ok, let me start out by saying, I have missed you guys desperately. I apologize for the blog interruption, but a funny little thing happened to me post Alt.
Ok, so not funny in a haha way, but in retrospect there are aspects of this story that are kinda
tragic funny. The short version is getting back from Alt was a little nightmarish and put quite a strain on my body. After being back just briefly, I had what amounted to an allergic reaction to a medicine I’ve been taking for almost two years and landed in the hospital.
Here is what struck me as funny…I was in a Starbucks (for the second time that day) getting coffee when I suddenly doubled over in pain, started shaking, made quite a scene, and had to go to the ER. Was I upset about going to the hospital? Nope. Worried because I felt like I was dying? Not in the least. Was I mad because I had to leave my coffee behind? Um, yes, yes I was. Let me let that sink in for a minute…
The definition of insanity: Laying on a gurney and mentally wailing “But, I paid for that coffee! Can’t I just get it to go???”
I won’t even mention the entirely-serious-though-masked-as-joking conversation I had with the nurse about starting an IV drip o’ coffee. She laughed it off and stuck me with this…
Let’s just keep the fact that I went to the Starbucks drive through on the way home from the hospital between us, shall we? My husband didn’t find that part funny at. all. In coffee’s defense, there is literally no medical evidence it was in any way related to my reaction, so really, why’s he gotta hate?
In any event, I am back in business and ready to drop some super awesome posts your way. I miss you all and have tried to at least like tons of pictures on Instagram and leave the odd Facebook comment while I was rockin’ the recovery on my couch, but haven’t really posted much all week. Somehow I felt like the picture of my IV was not terribly Instagram worthy…
I have an upcoming mega post on Alt and then a full week of excitement next week. If you don’t want to miss a second, jump on up into the side bar and subscribe. It would make me super happy and while I’m not technically a medical professional, I would imagine totally fuel my healing.
Till next time,
