white coats

ahhhh so a lovely evening last night (not really) followed up with a visit to urgent care this morning. So I went in last week for symptoms. It seemed to be getting better. But then again, funny how things can be decieving. Up every hour on the hour last night. Throwing up even water this morning. Called the parents. Urgent care doesn't open until 9. Well you can bet they let me right in. lol. 2 bags of saline. Minus 2 vials of blood and a prescription for 7 days of antibiotics. As well as strict orders to follow up with a family medicine doctor (great now I gotta find one)! So they are still doing labs and have more tests to do before they find out what is wrong. I apparently have some sort of infection. My white blood cells are up. Hence the anitbiotics, so we wait and see. Meanwhile monday I will have to call and see if I can get my doc reassigned. It very likey could be from the lake water in a flood area that I swam in and not intentially got in my nose/may have swallowed. We shall see. All I know is that I can't wait to be better again. Due to this I am missing Art Fair on the Square with my stepdad who instead got to spend time with me at urgent care. As well as a work Brewer's game which I organized. Oh well, the cost of health is priceless. Plus now my step dad and bro get to go to the game in my place. Works good since the bro was suppose to go to the game tonight. Got there and then realized that the tickets were in his car. In Lake Mills. Woops...Hopefully on the path to wellness. I will keep you posted.

patriotic fireworks

Well the week of the 4th is finally upon/past us. The thing doesn't seem like it was the 4th. Jessica isn't here like she was last year. The man is working. My friends all have plans and gas prices are way high. So I went to Monroe fireworks. Awesome! Better than Watertowns (not that it's hard) But they have patriotic music and we were right beyond the falling debre zone...still got a little dusting though but thats ok. I had ice cream and got to sit in the grass on a blanket. The only odd was like 50 degrees out. Not even the mosquitos were bothering us. Odd for the 4th. It was a gorgeous day. Not to hot. Saturday and Sunday were warmer. Saturday however I "hung out" at the gym with the man. I'm not excited about how my sides are going to feel tomorrow. I used this contraption that I've never used before. Actually a bunch of them. Chris you likely would know what they are. Lets just say one of them had me swinging like a monkey! Makes me wish that I had a gym membership so that I could go back and make the pain go away...kinda like the hair of the dog sorta thing. All pain no gain...unless you got that gym membership, lol! Anywho, came home. Wasn't feeling well (gonna leave it at that) talked to man and mom. Man convinced me to go into urgent care. I got to see a cool doctor who told me what the problem was and now well I've got to get it under control. Yay, bill shouldn't be to bad. No prescriptions. No x-rays. Don't worry I'm not dying or anything like that. It's all good, though he did say no caffiene. Gotta go cold turkey....
