Whats better Tgiving weekend?

Spending it pigging out on pumpkin pie?
Or in the Hospital?
Hmmmm? Let me think...
NOPE...Definitely NOT the Hospital!!!
Long painful story short...
Woke up Saturday Morning in such extreme pain..couldn't even get out of bed fully..so I spent about an hour trying to get up from a sitting /squat position....finding that wasn't going to work...I fortuitously had the phone by my bed..where I painfully managed to grab it..call my sister and she an hubby came over to help...actually to call an ambulance....
So much fun sitting in your jammies top and underroos with paramedics shooting you up full of " liquid Heroin" as the medic put it...three shots and they were able to painfully get me up , into the potty..( hey..holding it for FOUR fuckin' hours is bad enuff...worse would be another ,before a bedpan...) anyway they got me nice and loopy and down the stairs ,into a stretcher and down the street to Rose Medical ....much pain...shots, pills, MRI, and weee..surprise...a Bulging , herniated disk...
Oh joy...
anyway lots of anti-inflammatory, a snoring , moaning roommate, stinky unwashed hair for three days....LOTS of foreseeable medical bills, and therapy later...I'm home...
no work allowed this week..notes needed..Dr.s to see...
yadda yadda..
Lifestyle changes..etc....
I'm still feeling poorly, in some pain, ( wait til I see the bill and Whats NOT covered by my insurance...)....limited work allowed...oh joy...the heart of the Xmas shopping season too..I'm sure they are THRILLED at work about this...

Anyway..thanks for your calls and concern...I'm back home...gonna sleep now..the smell of "hospital sick is still on me"..ewwww

MAN did I SCORE some sweet drugs....too bad they all make me wanna puke!!! LOL
ahhh.it hurts to laugh...I'm going to bed...

OWWW! Get better, Patty! :D I Hope the anti-inflammatory and therapy work for you. I'd visit when you feel more human but georgia's a bit far away.

Glad you're at home in your own comfortable surroundings. I'll call you soon to check up on you. In the mean time, rest! And take those drugs! Did you say they gave you some liquid heroin donuts?
