I got the genius idea to clean out the spare bedroom and make it, um...a spare bedroom! You see it has been our "collect-all" room mostly for Calla's things, but none the less it was driving me INSANE!! I hauled out all the things in the room and then it started happening... My eyes were doing this weird thing where they were flashing squigglies wherever I looked and I started feeling dizzy. I told Nick that I couldn't do any more and grabbed a pillow to lie down on the floor with. I started getting a HORRIBLE headache. It was a throbbing pain above my eye. It continued to worsen. Nick had me take some migraine medicine and go lie in bed. It didn't help. So a couple hours later I hopped into the bath because I had a gut feeling it would help, and it did. For a little while at least. When I got out of the tub it started back up again. I took more medicine and still no relief. Finally I got up walked around and started bawling my eyes out because I felt so strange! I was dizzy, my head hurt, and whenever I stood I felt like vomiting. Nick said we should go to the hospital, and so we got ready and headed out. On our way we pulled over so I could throw up a couple of times. Wouldn't you know? I started feeling better!!!! Instead of going to the hospital we went to CVS and got some pepto for my upset stomach that I now had. We returned home and I rested for a bit before starting night duty with Calla.
That night Calla was energized to the max. I don't think I have ever heard of or seen a child that gets energized from a fever except for her! She wouldn't go to sleep for anything! I don't mean that she was cranky and miserable, oh no...just the opposite. She was wide awake, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Finally around 1 she fell asleep. I was exhausted!
Thank goodness for Nick! He took care of both us. :)
