Day 318, A Little Blip On The Screen

One is sailing along; everyday life seems boring. What? What’s that pain right there in my abdomen? I fought off seeking medical follow-up for a week, good nurse that I am, until yesterday. I saw my primary care physician and was sent home. Only it got worse, and then a fever. So I’ve spent the evening from 5:30 until 12:30 in the local emergency room. CT scans, blood work,IV fluids,¬†and finally turned loose to return home with the firm promise to take my antibiotics as prescribed, and see my primary doctor in a few days.

It’s amazing how you walk in to the ER fully functional, are escorted back to the inner sanctum, clothes stripped, and you’re given a standard issue gown, and put on a gurney. Immediately feeling like an invalid.

I was never so glad to walk into my home. I can take a little pain; just don’t make me stay at that hospital.

  1. I hope you are now feeling better. This is one of my fears too. To be a patient or worse go to surgery. I’m glad you were able to go home and recover smoothly. Take care my friend. I pray for you fast recovery.

  2. Thinking of you, sending you wishes for a speedy recovery. Hope all is well soon, Angel.
