That Was A Blur

The past week has been such a blur!

On Monday of this week, I went in for an endoscopy. I have had several of these over the years and didn't plan for anything other than to sleep all day. My throat was pretty tight, so they were able to go in dilate and stretch my throat. I slept through most of the day and managed the pain with some of the pain medicine that was prescribed.

Tuesday I woke up hoping to feel normal again, only to be forced back to bed because of the sick feeling that I felt. Jason was also scheduled to go to Atlanta to see U2 in concert. He had been planning this for close to a year! I was planning on tackling my to do list and hopefully cleaning this house of mine that has been neglected since the start of school.

Unfortunately I took a turn for the worse and wound up in the hospital. I was thoroughly tested and given medicine to manage the dehydration, pain, nausea, and persistent (and pounding) headache. Long story short, we think that I had a reaction to either the anesthesia or the pain medicine from Monday's procedure.

Anyhow, I have spent the past couple of days in the hospital and I am now home resting well. I am so grateful that I didn't have any esophageal tears or other gastro-intestinal issues. I am also thankful for a family that can run at any moment to take care of the kids, friends that can step in and help us out with the kids, and family and friends that call and stop by.

I have 4 more days of Fall Break left. I am hoping to use those days wisely as soon as I get my strength back. :)

Oh, and I also owe Jason a big one! He missed U2 for me! Suggestions???



That's so crazy that that happened, Sunny. I am so sorry you had such a rough week and didn't get your restful, productive fall break like you had planned. We were worried about you. I'm glad you are feeling better and it wasn't anything extremely serious. I know that being in the hospital and being that sick is no fun! I hope the next few days are enjoyable and restful for you. :)


P.S. I know Jason was bummed, but I'm sure he was where he wanted to be. Maybe you could try to get tickets again and plan a weekend away for the two of you???

I am so sorry that you have had such a rough week. I hope you can find time to get some rest and hopefully feel like cleaning before you go back to school.

Glad you are better!!! Hope you get things done over the weekend. Clean houses are overrated! They don't stay that way for long-so just relax!
