What an adventure!

Well all of last week I was REALLY sick. I went to the hospital Saturday morning/Friday night. It was midnight and I was in so much pain. I felt like dying instead of dealing with the pain. SO my sweet husband took me to the hospital. We got there at midnight and did not leave until 5 AM!!!!!!!!!!! Death was knocking on our door if we stayed any longer. Orion is not someone who deals well with staying up super late. I was laying on the hospital bed drugged up and getting hydrated, while Orion sat next to me holding my hand trying his best not to be grouchy. I had spent a good amount of time in the waiting room crying because it hurt so bad, poor Orion wanted so bad to doing something to make me feel better but he could not. When they were putting the IV in my arm he could not watch. He said he left the room because he needed to get some water and go to the bathroom. I know he really could not handle seeing someone cause me pain and knowing he could nothing to stop them. After a couple hours of fluid being pumped into me, morphine, and medicine I don't remember we left the hospital. I was in a lot less pain and was very sleepy.

I was able to sleep for 4 hours until the pain came back full force. So instead of waking Orion up to drive me to the store to pick up my pain medicine I walked. It is only two blocks away, by the time I got there my head felt like it was going to explode. So I called Orion and had him pick me up. He came with a smile on his face and love in his embrace. I really am so lucky to have a husband like him. If I got four hours of sleep so did Orion, but he stayed up with me to make me food and make sure I took my medicine. After food and medicine I felt sleepy again, but Orion could not fall asleep again. So I slept while he waited for me to wake up. I spent most of the day in and out of contentiousness. By the next day I was feeling better and was able to make breakfast for myself, which was toast because my medicine made food sound not so appealing.

I am still taking medicine to help me get better but I am back to cooking and eating normal amounts of food. The doctor said I had strep throat REALLY bad and I was REALLY dehydrated. I was a lot sicker than I realized and it got really bad pretty fast. That is the most exciting thing that has been going on lately. 


  1. KD, I just found your blog through your comment on Myriah's blog! So good to hear you're doing better. :)

  2. Strep throat, huh?
    I was actually hoping this was your way of saying you were pregnant or something.

  3. No I am not prego and I hope for it to stay that way until after I graduate. Plus I have only been married 4 months, I am trying to make a deal with God to not let me get pregnant for at least two years. Although I have to say He has not said yes to my deal, so I guess we will have to wait and see.
