Thank you for all your prayers and please keep praying! I really do feel uplifted in prayer.
Monday night I got quite sick. I thought it was just a cold and/or sinus infection but my whole head felt like a balloon ready to burst. I had such a tremendous headache, the worst in my entire life. I had body aches, chills, the sweats and started throwing up. Anytime I tried to eat or drink water, up it came. I suffered all night. I thought Jim should bring me to ER for an IV (I dehydrate easily and have kidney disease), but he didn't realize how bad I was and I did not want another bill. When the morning came I waited till 8am to call the clinic. I could get in with a nurse practitioner in two hours. That wouldn't work. I had no one to take me. Finally I called a gal from our church that I am quite close to. She took me to the ER. You get in rather quickly when you are upchucking in their wastebasket! Still, I waited quite a long time in the room as there were critical cases there. More waiting, more pain, more nausea and chills. It took quite a while for the IV to kick in. They had to give me a second dose of pain and nausea med.
Meanwhile, I was waiting for my husband to get home from work. When I dozed off, there he was! My sister was in the same hospital with my Mom. She is not doing well. Her oxygen level is down and the pneumonia is now spread to both lungs.
When I got home, I felt quite dopey, but managed to call and cancel our trip to Savannah. Another couple will take our place and we will get a full refund. I made my follow up appointment with my doctor, and cancelled my hair appointment as I did not know how I would feel today. I am hoping to sit with my Mom, even if it means wearing a mask today.
