That's right!! I spent most of the day yesterday at the hospital! It all started on Monday night. I came down with a nasty flu bug. I started throwing up around 8:30 p.m. at my friend's house while my husband was playing softball (not exactly the ideal situation for being sick - although my friend took great care of me and my kids).
We had 2 vehicles there, so I had to drive myself 30 minutes home at around 10 p.m. Luckily, I made it all the way home without a problem. Things only got worse once I was home. I continued on the vomiting parade until about 3:30 in the morning. The strangest thing to me though was the lack of naseau and the intense sharp pains in my abdomen and chest area. By 7:00 that morning, I had been vomit free for 3 1/2 hours but I was still experiencing the pain. So, we decided it would be best to go to the hospital and make sure everything was o.k.
They ran every test needed and by 4 p.m. yesterday, they said everything looked fine and they had no idea where the pain came from. By then, the pain had been gone for a while and I was feeling much better, so I headed out.
Luckily, I got out of there just in time to head to the polls and get my vote in. Here I am with my hospital bands still on and looking my best :)
