Gloom, despair, and agony on me...
"...deep, dark depression, excessive misery. If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all. Gloom, despair and agony on me." (HeeHaw skit...used to watch it all the time)

That's how I feel today about my whole vacation thingie. I have been as sick as a dog since last week when we got to Disney World. If anything health related could happen to me, it did.

It started with what I thought was a tooth abscess. Still don't know what it is. Doesn't hurt.

Then I got three canker sores in my inside upper lip (I almost never get those). Next came a very bad sore throat and chest area (it must be bronchitis). Then I lost my voice completely. Next, Aunt Flo decides to visit (I know too much info on that one, but it definitely made me cry when I hadn't expected her on vacation and brought none of the Aunt Flo arsenal. Then after I borrowed a quarter from Dave to go buy a (female thingie) in the restroom, I found out that they now cost .50 cents, so I go back out to get another quarter. He gives me four so I can get an extra. I lose two of them in the danged machine. By this time I am practically sobbing.).

Then I get a cough so bad that I hurt all over when I cough. I think my sore throat may either be strep again or it could just be from the excessive coughing I am doing. Either way, I am in pain and can't breathe well.

Today I did the unusual and asked Dave (aka hubby) to stay home and take me to the ER. I didn't sleep at all the last two nights and I am just plain worn down. I think it is bronchitis and it is causing my asthma to act up too. So, it's off to the hospital for little ole' Dana as soon as he gets back from taking our oldest to school. I have been sick a whole week and did nothing so my kids could have a good time on vacation. It was the wrong thing to do. I should have seen a doctor before now.

So now I am a major disease machine. Excuse me while I go change my drawers....again. Coughing makes me leek.

UPDATE: It's official. I have bacterial bronchitis which is causing my asthma to flare up. I could have told the doctor that. @@ (rolling eyes)

"I believe that no matter what you do, no matter how hard you try, you can not baptize cats." - Larry the Cable Guy

A Tennessee man and an Alabama man were both fighting in a war and were captured by the enemy.
"Before we put you to death," said the enemy, "do you have any last requests?"
"Yes," said the Alabaman. "Could you play 'Yeah, Alabama' before you shoot me?"
"Sure," said the enemy. "How about you, Tennessean?"
"Could you shoot me before you play 'Yeah, Alabama?'"
