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.
