Hmmmmm….I hope the universe does not take that as a challenge.
Last night was awful. Fever, night sweats, chills, coughing, ripping hernia….you know, the same old stuff. When I saw my hernia this morning in the bathroom mirror, fainting was a possibility. It has increased in size, is as hard as a rock, and worst of all, it hurts like heck. Each time I pee, it takes a minute or so and my kidneys turn to fire. Sometimes I cough for hours straight. Sometimes I don’t.
I got my first email around 9:30 AM. It was the nurse telling me I should go to the ER and they were still working on my order for home health and IV antibiotics. Over the course of the day he wrote 5 emails and we “talked” on the phone once. My voice is hard to understand. He called my insurance company, got a list of home health agencies that took their reimbursement, found a company that was going to give me the IV antibiotics and then a company nurse called me and asked questions. Then my doc’s nurse wrote back to say my insurance would not pay. What the heck???? His last email to me was at 3:30. I kept waiting to hear more……….crickets…….
I wondered if I should try to find an ER…but that usually ends poorly. I didn’t know what to do!
Soon, all of that was forgotten.
Just before 7 PM, there was a guy staring in my window. He was youngish and Polynesian….not someone who lives in my senior apartment and I had never seen him around before. I got up to look out my window. I thought he was gone. I sat back down. I felt impressed to get back up, shut and lock the windows, and close the blinds.
When I went in my bedroom, I could see the guy sitting under the bush near my window. Then he crawled under the bush.
Whenever my adrenaline gets pumping, I can breathe better. See….there’s an upside to crazy people outside! I suspect that when that wears off, I won’t feel well at all. I hope something good happens tomorrow!!!!!!!!!
