I'm finally, hopefully, on the road to recovery. After waiting out those awful lower-right-side stabbing pains, I finally drug my booty to the emergency room. The Dr. asked me why I had been waiting since Monday morning if my pain was so strong, I said, "I'm a full-time college student and I've had things to do." He appreciated my humor.
Deep inside, I was actually really hoping that it was my appendix because I knew it would be a quick fix and I wouldn't ever have to worry about it again -- especially when I'm in Cambodia. It wasn't. After what I felt like wasn't enough tests, they diagnosed me and drugged me.
Mom and I were given these wonderful swine flu masks in the waiting room. The Dr. said 80% of everyone else had flu-like symptoms. Oh joy!
I was supposed to leave this afternoon for a conference with my development theories class. It looks like instead I will be enjoying a nice 3-day-weekend. (4 days actually if you consider today because I skipped both my practicum and class). Of course I use the word enjoy lightly, unless you're the type that enjoys staying in bed, achy, nauseous, and exhausted.
I'm going to open my second Gatorade and start my second movie..
on a side note...
