So I wake up yesterday afternoon and feel like crap. Eh, I go to work anyway. I donâ€™t deal with that many people and the ones I do deal with I can warn to stay away lest they get whatever it was I had.
Work is going along swimmingly until around midnight when I find that I cannot continue to work without blasting the AC in the office.
Now, we were under a snow advisory last night here in Seattle (/sarcasm/ and what a frightful venture that was, let me tell you /sarcasm/) so you can imagine the looks on peopleâ€™s faces when they walk into my area and it is a right 45 degrees and windy in there!
At around 0530, I get home and attempt to go to sleep only to find that no position past 100% vertical allows me to breath. Crap!
Off to the physicianâ€™s office I go to wait as one of those without an appointment. An hour later and Iâ€™m being told to breath heavy, suck on this here nebulizer and keep spitting up as much of that crap as you can until we can get you in for a chest x-ray.
X-ray done and pneumonia was the case that they gave me, along with a half a dozen prescriptions. Letâ€™s see: two different types of vapor inhalers, some weird steroid liquid, a large bottle of antibiotics, a weird sort of powder shooter inhaler type thing, and, my personal favorite, liquid vicadin with codine.
I have called my work and given them the bad news that Iâ€™ll be home for at least the next three days trying not to drown in my own bodily fluids and to not expect me in until maybe Friday, possibly Monday.
I just wish I could enjoy this new found time off, but this shit hurts! Iâ€™ve coughed so much that my kidney panels are sore, not to mention that I canâ€™t get an appetite up to eat anything.
But hey, at least youâ€™ll have me here! And you never know what will happen when all of these prescriptions interact!
