My Horoscope Said What?

Oh, it wasn't too long ago I was bragging about what a great year my horoscope predicted for me.

Well, if the past two weeks are any indication, I'm in for a rough 2010.

Y'all know I love to pass me some kidney stones. I started passing blood about 10 days ago and passed a 3mm x 3mm x 3mm stone four days later. That, my friends, was relatively easy when compared to my past experiences. I'm VERY thankful for that. Only an hour of serious pain.

A couple days after that, I woke up with a splitting headache. Four days after that, I dragged my ass to the doctor's office. I wasn't able to sleep or get off the couch. They gave me a shot for the pain (torpol or something like that). It was for headaches and they promised no woosiness. They were right: headache gone, I was clearheaded, and it lasted for 12 hours. That was Monday and I was able to complete some time sensitive client projects.

I am now 4 days into a Z-pack of antibiotics. The pain is from sinus pressure and Tylenol, Advil, and Benedryl Sinus were having no effect. Things are much better but I'm taking so many pills. In general, I'm anti-medication, if I can do without. I've needed such relief that I've been popping shit left and right.

My neighbor had a similar thing so it's going around. If you have these symptoms, you might want to get to the doctor earlier than I did and save yourself days of discomfort.

Sorry you were sick but am glad to hear you're improving. Is there a possibility of mold at home or work?

Maybe you're just getting all uncomfortableness out of the way now, so you can really dig in to a super duper 2010 (starting in February).

OH GAVIN! SORRY to hear it, you have ENOUGH to worry about....and now, middle of winter.... DO WE need to get out there and tuck you in? YOU need a "nurse".......... GLAD you're on the mend, but sorry you're hurting. Being sick in winter always seems to elevate the "hurt".

THINKING of you........... Hope we get to see you soon,
