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!!!!
