Thanks Brendhan and Geoff:

I agree on needing a better year Geoff, this one took its toll on me. But I think I'm doing better with the meds for seizures and the other issues are cooperating mostly. As is usual on my birthday (and I swore I wasn't going to talk about this) I got very sick last night about 6pm while at work. So sick, I had such a migraine and vomiting that I had to stop during rounds nearly 20 minutes to get my eyes to focus, literally the light of day was both blinding and deafening. I managed to drive hme slowly, feeling no better at 11pm, I gave serious thought for my coworker to drive me to the gate and have Tracey pick me up from there, but then getting my car to go to work today would have been a major hassle.

Iwent right to bed, having nothing left in me to throw up and still a screamer of a headache that ranked amoung the worse I can remember. I fell asleep on a bag of ice wrapped in a moist towel which helped on my head, and by 3am it was mostly melted and I ended getting up and have been up since.

By 4am I could manage to get some meds in me for the headache and it eased greatly by this morning when Tracey woke. Now.... Somehow still awake after only really about 2.5 hours of sleep, I'm slowly getting ready to go to work at 2pm, relieving the guy who brought my bees to the house here the other night - letting him go home about 30 minutes early, he'll appriciate that.

So, it was a crappy day, but typical. I never do anything, like drink in excess (had nothing at all honestly) to explain why I got so sick, I wonder if I got some bad food - but that wouldn't explain the massive headache to start this chain of events. I see my doctor on Monday, he follows all my issues well as does the neurologist, so let's see if any medicine changes or tests may be run, but I tend to think I just inherited my Mom's gene pool and I need to deal with life has dealt me.

Thanks for your kind thoughts guys, always nice to be in people's thoughts :) Brendhan, hope you are still reading this... Sorry we couldn't get together, at least for coffee or lunch when you were only 12 miles away. Let's NOT let that happen next time, I look forward to seeing you and Geoff and all the others (including Irwin and KathyP) and who knows what other surprises at BUD2 - what an event it will be!!!!

Happy Birthday John, I wasn't online yesterday so I missed it. Hope you feel better, migraines can be debilitating, I know.
Best wishes for a great year and health improvements your way.

Thanks All:

I'm back at work, 24 hours SURE MAKES A DIFFERENCE - wow, I'm feeling nornal (well you know, Beemaster normal  :roll:) and all is well. I'm glad being as sick as I was yesterday night is over, but it stunk being my birthday on top of being at work too!

All in all, doing great and glad to be back in commission - and thanks for all the kind birthday words, I'll be celebrating it on Sunday when I have off, we have some awesome looking skirt steak which I'll lightly top with Taco Seasoning, ready to grill with a big bowl of mixed veggies, I'll have some wild rice with that I think and some foil wrapped corn, soaked in husk for about 30 minutes and slowly rotated on the grill - man what a meal!!!!!

Happy Birthday Boss!

Youre stressed out, you and Mrs Boss have had a hectic and traumatic year. You need to have a holiday. A lie on the beach and read a book holiday for a coupla weeks. Not a holiday at home when you are doing ten things at once.

Im telling you as your personal psychic physician, ( try saying that ten times quickly) you need a rest and you need it soon. 50 to 60 you have to chill out if you want to stay healthy.
