What? WHAT?

Update: I believe this is the sickest I've ever been. I've seen a lot of blood in the past few days, coming out of nose, my ears and finally my mouth when I vomited up a bunch last night. Not sure what that was about, but I've got other worries, right now. Last night I began loosing my mind. I still have not actually slept since waking Friday morning. I nod off, but then my brain reacts like a caged animal and after 2-3 minutes of disturbing dreams/images, I wake up. PW says its the drugs I'm taking-they do the same thing to her. I guess I feel a little better today, but last night was a very dark and scary place. PW sat up with me all night, had to call the hospital at one point and I watched her sleep this morning. She takes very good care of me.


Have I ever mentioned that I almost never get sick? I've never had a personal physician and am so rarely sick I barely remember ever getting sick. Well. So far, 2007 seems to be the year I will remain sick, all year.

My sinus infection? By the time I landed last night at 11:45, I was near delerious with pain. A hot shower at home really didn't help like I thought it would. By 4am, I had driven myself to the Emergency room. By this morning's tally:
Acute sinus infection
Double ear infection
perforated eardrum (was that a motherfucker, waiting for it to "pop")
major deafness in both ears

I have yet to sleep in about 30 hours and I can't remember what life without pain was like.

Mr. Bud said...

and being a friend i might say
you look like ground up donkey dicks
that's been roasting on them kabob sticks
you need to just stay at home
and watch the little one dance and rome
PW's doing some mighty fine work
with soup and medicines for such a jer.. (swell fella)
if it we're me acting as yer spouse
i'd gather my things and leave the house
maybe that's why my marriage failed
(well, that and having to much ale)
so there it is, in sickness and health
it's absolutely your biggest wealth

get well soon dude. cause you look like shit
and i couldn't find a hallmark card.

Queen of Dysfunction said...

Pirate, we're all rooting for you to get better but we've come to terms with the fact that you might die.

With that in mind I've taken up a collection. You know, to make sure your carcass is burned in style.

Macoosh said...

Queen of Dysfunction said...

Oh hell, you're probably reenacting Wild Orchid with Pirate Wife.

No blog updates. Dammit.

Blondie said...

Good morning--checking to see if you are still alive. Yes? I really really hope you are feeling better. :(

Mr. Bud said...

i know your lying there on the couch in agony with one finger in your ear so the rest of your brains don't leak out
but i was wondering.

how do seedless watermelons reproduce?

and if we are traveling around the milky way at 487,353 miles per hour and we orbit the sun at 66,593.5 miles per hour and we spin around at 1041.6 miles per hour for a total speed of 554,988.1 miles per hour. why isn't my hair blown back and my cheeks wobbling from the ride?

just wondering...

Freddie said...

Still among the living?

Inquiring minds wanna know...

Me is a Newfie'sWoman said...
