I really knew I needed to be seen when I was surprised to see the ileostomy bag. Forgot about that.
The doctor: Nauseous?
Did you eat anything today? What?
A slice of Kringle, a little leftover chicken (I know, the day after Thanksgiving!) and…and… (struggling) …a persimmon.
I was definitely loopy. She had more questions.
Okay, touch my finger, then your nose, then my (moved) finger.
(Wait, my nose is over where?) Right side passed, left side, out to lunch.
Okay, said the doctor, let me see if there are enough people on today down in CT, otherwise you’ll have to go to the ER. Then come right back up here.
A thank you thank you thank you to the people who worked in that department today. They were able to get me in in five minutes. No bleeding but definitely a concussion. My balance is worse than usual and I was told to let my brain rest and heal before doing anything that might risk a second concussion in a short time, especially given my history. Listen to my body: if it doesn’t want to do it don’t do it or it will take far longer to heal.
I had to miss seeing Mel and Kris at a show and that was really hard, but there was just no way. Phyllis had to go off without me.
Feet up. Rest. Knit. Something simple for now.
