Yup. I've been in the hospital. I think I went to Grand River on Sunday. They triaged me into a bed and an IV drip.

in particular...codeine are bad for me.

My fever continued to rage despite 48 hrs of anti-biotic use, and I was getting tremors when the codeine wore off... I stopped taking it.

My fever is dropping, I am almost noticing an appetites, I haven't had the tremors since this afternoon.

Note to self...while no one has told me I'm allergic to codeine..>DO NOT take it.

Went back to GGH yesterday for an ultrasound. First time I ever had an abdominal done, very cool! I saw my spleen!!

Not sure why they wanted it done, but it showed nothing. I waited in ER from 11- 2:30pm to find that out!!

I am on Tylenol 3's. And when they wear off, I can't tell if it's the pain that makes me get all cold, shakey and uncomfortable, or if it's withdrawel from the codeine.

I've cut my dosage back to 1 every four hrs or so, instead of 2. And that seems to be fine.

I have things I wanted to do today. Was supposed to go the Elmira Maple Syrup festival, want to refill my water containers etc.

I need to start icing my back & shoulder again, with the pain, I've been hunching and that's a no-no!!

And yet, I'm crawling back into bed.

I just got in from Guelph's emergency department. I went there at about 12:30 this afternoon due to overwhelming pain in my left kidney and chills from hell.

I have a kidney infection. Apparantly my white count is through the roof but my kidneys are still doing what they are supposed to. I'll be going in for an ultrasound at some point tomorrow.

Tylenol 3's are my friend.

That's it for now. I hate my body.

Well, not really, as in I'm not EATING lunch.  Again, I forgot to grab it, and I'm waiting for a school to call so can't leave my desk.

I had hoped to sneak out around noon, head to the "Doctor's Office" on University to see the guy who DIDN"T complete the WSIB paperwork when I was there on Feb 20th, and be back for my 3pm meeting.  

That's not happening today.  There's a young lady I need to go interview instead.  So perhaps I'll manage to wrap the meeting up early enough to p/u K and head to the clinic to get the Dr. to fill out the paperwork.

I hurt like hell right now.  I can't take the muscle relaxants when I'm working, cause they make me sleepy.  So I'm at work, no ice pack, spent 3 hrs in a meeting, and have an ache from my buttocks to tips of my hair.

I was adjusted by the new chiropractor last night, he wants to see me again this week.  He figures if he can't help me in under 3 weeks, he can't help me at all.  I agree with that remark and will be due to see the primary physician on 11 April 08 anyway.

Work related: over my recording days, I got 5 files closed (from 24 down to 19).  I have 2 more ready to close.  I've booked another week of recording time in order to play catch up with my ongoing files.  

I have vacation the last week of April.  I have no plans.  But I have a WEEK off....

Budget is UBERTIGHT for the next couple of weeks, because I am out of pocket on the chiro & RMT treatments I've been getting this month.  That sucks.

To be fair though, I have locked an amount away for a secured credit card, but haven't gotten the paperwork completed or the card yet.  I'm hoping to use it for my gas and those "online" purchases that I want to make.

Well, that's it for now...back to the grind.

Much thanks to my rescue driver today!![ profile] hippybngstockng!! She was champ with the stick

Dr. gave me anti-inflammatories & muscle relaxants. Said keep going to chiro & massage and see her in 3 weeks. If no change, she'll refer me for phsyio.

Chiro says ICE ICE ICE while he's on vacation this week.

Wonder if I can get the boss to let me work from home where I have my icepack handy???

I have a standard. I am hoping to get to Hamilton to talk to my Dr.***By 3pm today*** regarding this shoulder. I need a letter or something for work.

I'm fairly certain that driving is part of what is aggravating it. Certainly it is worse everytime I do any driving the previous day.

If anyone has a free day, drives stick in the snow and wants to hang with me, or wants to drive me and I'll be the willing passenger!!!!! Please let me know. I have to be there for 3pm.

I spent some time being under the influence on Friday night, of several things. One of them a known pain killer. It worked. I spent about 48hrs, without the dull ache from my neck and head and shoulders. Too bad I'd had the alcohol and felt hungover as well. That beiing said.. I'm significantly more aware of the pain NOW than I was previously.

I saw a chidropractor for x-rays yesterday and see him for an adjustment tomorrow. I'm now using ice instead of heat. Hopefully this will help. Some how I need to find a way to work tomorrow.
