After being sick since like January I'd had enough.
Coughing. Aching. Snotty.
So early this morning I woke up coughing and hurting in my chest. My head was pounding. Time to visit a doctor. Any doctor at this point. Hell, I might even go to the local vets!!!
I whipped out my handy dandy Blackberry and realized the local Urgent Care didn't open until 9 am. Nope, couldn't wait that long.
So, at 5 am I called my daddy to come get me and take me to the ER so that Superdad could stay home and tend to the babes.
Since Lil O is still puny I took her along as well. Might as well make this a multi-person sick visit since we'd be paying out the ass anyway. We were taken back instantly to a room and given our gowns.
After I was in my gown laying on the bed I noticed a pin size hole in my sock above my big toe on my right foot. I began to obsess over the hole. How did that happen? Hmmm? I wasn't worried about the open in the back hospital gown just the pin size hole above my big toe on my right foot.
It's weird how we pick something so ridiculous to obsess over when we are sick.
THEN!!!! Here's the good part.
The doctor is examining us. He's listening to my lungs when I go into a coughing fit. A coughing fit that made me pass gas. Not a silent gas either. I farted. A fart that could be heard. I guess the pin size hole above my big toe in my right sock is a minor detail now, huh?
I'm used to the coughing and passing gas thing though. Even coughing while wetting myself over the past week. WE ALL know about how coughing and Tampons don't mix!!!
GOOD FREAKING TIMES!!!!
We both have a respiratory infection. No pig flu or pneumonia. We were given meds for coughing and were told to rest.
Does he know I have FOUR kids. I laugh at the word REST!!!
