Fortunately, the hospital is across the street from the apartment. (The dentist 2 doors down, the pharmacy next door, the allergist across the street and down 1...all around...I can get there....)
They checked me in.
I was running about 102.1 at the hospital
They gave me:
1 gram of tylenol. That's right, not milligram. One Full Gram.
A shot of Toridol? For the body aches.
Granted, the acid reflux from the anti-histamines was bothersome.
For those that remember the blizzard when I fell down sk4p's steps at Wendover (Yeah, that long ago) For the second time in my life I was treated to a GI-Cocktail. I don't remember all the ingrediants...It was pastel green and had lidocaine. You hash out the fun of that "Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster."
After that I promptly broke into a sweat as the gram of Tylenol (like an army of Jackie Chans) rampaged thru my body.
I was also given some hycodin; which may I add is really tasty (bubble gum --- yum!) And well...it feels really nice. That's for my throat so I stop coughing.
If I sound sort of puerile at the moment.... well, I wanted everyone to know that I'm not dying but I am pleasantly and mildly stoned at the moment :-D
My doctor wrote me a note. I shouldn't fly anywhere for at least 2 days. Boy..is the office not going to be pleased.... :-( I've already mailed them...I'm going to mail them again and call early in the morning.
Happily, I now have an appetite. Eating Noodles and Cottage Cheese (The only milk based product I can still eat ;)
