from the chevy to the levee and this will be the day that I die. After yet another "death scare" and what looked like yet another close call and things calmed down, I heard the American pie lyrics in my head.
I thought to myself on sat. morning that this not the way I want to die, and It is not safe for me to live alone.
First of all I awoke at about 6 a.m. unable to breathe. The liquid came up to block off my airway. I ran outside hoping that cool air would help. I wheezed real loud for quite a while with very little air making it in. For the next 3 hours my throat and mouth were burning a and you have that horrible taste and I was audibly wheezing very very loud due to the liquid in there. Today I am still having a hard time breathing and started on advair but i'm not sure how to use it.
But the morning was a picnic compared to what was to come at 11 a.m. I woke up freezing cold, like being naked in the snow. My muscles were very taut, I was shaking violently, and my teeth were chattering so fast I could not have spoken if I wanted to. I ran in to the bathroom, ran the hot shower and stayed iin there for the sauna effect. It didn't work.
Even if I call 911 I can't speak so what good would it do. I put on a coat and a hat and shoes and unlocked the door in case the ambulance crew needed to come in.
At about 12:30 I fell asleep, then woke up at 1:30. My past experience with e.r.'s you know a little about because I have blogged about it.
On the one hand, I don't want to die in this manner, but on the other hand, the hospital will review me and tell me they have no idea what's going on.
When I woke up I felt like my fever was 103. I was sweating and burning hot and weak from the ordeal. I can't figure out how to use the thermometer I got from frys.
I have no money for a taxi, but if I call ambulance I wasted over 1k in resources, and getting home will be nearly impossible.
I thought it was related to a med. I'm on however my orthopedist told me today that she thinks that an infection is coming on and my body was trying to fight it. She recommended I alert my primary are physician.
