Home again

Feeling like a wet rag, wrung out.

I can’t remember the last time I felt so ill. Days of fevers through the roof, intense pain and a kaleidoscope of unpleasant images.

internal bleeding, extreme dehydration, reactions to contrast dye… but the worst was the fever that refused to lower below 39 degrees. I had a few episodes of tachycardia thrown in there, as well as breathing difficulties. Obviously I wasn’t going to die but I felt like I wanted to.

They ran out of veins for iv access at one point and even my feet were used and exhausted.

Needless to say, I did not go out on my next tour, which started this Sunday last.


About quirkycharm

I like to think that I have a certain quirky charm but I am probably being optimistic. Acquired taste, perhaps, which many don't acquire. This is about my fifth blog out there. My hosting companies kept going out of business or my IT exhusband kept hacking into them and I would move again. I don't do twitter, I barely do facebook, I don't try and 'monetize' my blog. I love my husband, my grown children and my job and this particular incarnation of oversharing my life comes at a time when I am the most content that I have ever been. I write always, sporadically during the good stuff and exhaustingly during the bad.
