Blue, rainy Monday

Just got back from my visit with the doctor. Yup, decided I'd better go see what is going on since I woke up feeling like the little metal ball in a pinball game. I was bouncing from one side of the hall to the other and had lost all sense of balance! I woke up around 1:30 a.m., turned over in the bed and everything was suddenly moving all around me. I got up to go to the bathroom, holding on to everything as I went, got back in bed and woke up in the same situation. Long story short, I have inner ear problems and bronchitis, to boot! I knew I had a cold, but I didn't think it had progressed to bronchitis. Guess I'm more vulnerable now since I've had pneumonia and live with a smoker. So, I was given a steroid, antibiotic, nasal spray, cough medicine and a decongenstant. Oh, and it's cold and rainy outside! LOL

I have not even been able to work on anything quilty today. Soon as I finish posting, I want to work on the next Midget Block and/or one of the Advent quilts. I took all my meds after Jim and I went to Sonic for a burger. Won't have to worry too much about fixing dinner. And, the doc said to take a break from the gym for at least 3 days. That I am not crazy about. It's so easy to get out of the habit. After 8 months, I'm not about to stop. I'll get back by Thursday.

I'd better work on these blocks before I get too sleepy. Good thing this happened on my day off and Jim happens to be off today, too. I'm not sure I could've driven to the doctor's.

Oh man! What a way to start the Fall season off! Hope you rest well and whatever has gotten ahold of you lets go real soon!

I would have guessed maybe about the bronchitis part but who knew that it was off to your inner ear now. Good thing you didn't have to go to work today or someone's hair may have wound up a bit asymmetrical with the "dizzies" you had. Get some rest and the gym will wait--he probably didn't want you to pass out or something.

Oh Veronica, I sure hope the meds to the trick. I've had that happen two or three times and it is so scary. I remember almost having to crawl to the bathroom because the room was spinning so badly. I'm glad you didn't wait any longer to go to the doctor. The gym can wait - get to feeling better first.
